I love to work with silver (also brass, bronze, & copper) wire and high-quality terminated gemstones. I also collect driftwood from my secret places in order to create sculpture and wands studded with crystals. feel free to ask about custom work; I can send you pictures of wand and rod 'blanks' for your consideration.

I work in .925 Silver, Argentium (.926 silver), Bronze, Brass, Copper, and Driftwood. My stones are predominantly naturally formed crystals.
Much of my more recent silver work uses 'Argentium' which is a non-tarnishing alloy of silver. It is rated .926 and has germanium added and some copper taken out of the alloy.
Regular sterling silver is .925
