Seller was fast to respond and super sweet! I purchased these as a gift for a friend and they ended up (sadly) not working out. The return process was easy and I will definitely purchase from here again in the future :)

About

Enamel jewelry designed and created in my studio

I make enamel jewelry. I design (sometimes for days) and then hand-saw, bend, solder, file and sand a piece of copper or silver into a canvas for the enamel. Next I apply the vitreous enamel (powdered glass) and fire each layer in a kiln. One piece might be fired 10 or more times to get the desired colors and textures.

Enamel work is a new (ad)venture in my journey as a jewelry artist. I worked for over 12 years as a studio jeweler creating custom fine jewelry but have recently transitioned my business in this new colorful direction.

I find inspiration for my work everywhere. From the endless forms and colors in nature to the simplicity and purity of a child’s drawing. I try to put a sense of joy and whimsy into each piece.

    Custom fine jeweler for 12 years and now creating enamel jewelry in my home studio. I make everything you see in my shop. And I'm the only worker-bee in my studio. (Though I get many visits (help?) from my kitty, Atticus.)
