Lovin' Silver Down to the Molecular Level

I believe we still have a lot to learn from nature. Anything I can do to bring awareness in a beneficial way to the natural world, is what I do.

My home and studio were in Whitefish, Montana and now they're in Bucktown, Chicago. The medium is Precious Metal Clay or PMC. PMC was invented in the 90s by Mitsubishi as a way to use silver from discarded electronics and more; thus, all of my pieces contain at least 40% silver from industrial waste.

All pieces are 99.9% silver or Fine Silver or 96.2% silver or a new Sterling Silver. All jump rings, wires, and ear wires are either Sterling or Argentium Silver. Nothing contains nickel, to which some people have allergies.

My items have a protective coat in select areas to preserve the intentional black patina or oxidation. If you want to shine your item, simply polish the high points lightly with a polishing cloth.

Additional policies and FAQs
Yes, all my items are hand made beginning to finish, by me and only me. I do everything from making the pieces, to photographing them, placing them on handmade display cards, fulfilling orders, organizing the whole mess, and cleaning up after myself.

I do accept custom orders, when time and my ability allow.

All purchased items arrive on a display card placed in a zip-lock bag with an anti-tarnish tab. This is wrapped in tissue paper, then placed in a muslin, draw-string bag. Finally, this is placed in a bubble-wrap envelope and boxed. For Christmas or other occasions, I can wrap the envelope in colorful wrapping paper. Let me know if the purchased item is a gift, and I will wrap it accordingly (no prices shown).

I am certified Precious Metal Clay (PMC) Senior Instructor by PMC Connection and and RioGrande Rio-Rewards Certified.
