This was packed SO well. I appreciate that. It also arrived quickly and is perfect, just like the pictures online
Behind the scene at AliCat Studio
In my studio I use many tools such as hammers, pliers, files, saws, torches, punches, drills and my wonderful hands to fabricate my designs. My traditional fabrication techniques are forging, fold-forming, sawing, soldering and finally polishing to transform Sterling Silver, Copper and Brass into finished pieces of wearable art jewelry. I also make Pearl necklaces that are all individually hand-knotted on silk thread.
It starts with an idea that I sketch in my design book. After contemplating how it can be done, I transfer the design onto my choice of metal and choose the stones. Depending on the design, I work it until it is a pleasing shape and design. Sometimes I add gemstones, sea glass, Pearls or found objects to add interest. My jewelry is handcrafted one piece at a time which results in unique designs that are not exactly alike. This keeps it all interesting and one-of-a-kind.
Having a piece of handmade jewelry is special and I love it when someone purchases my work. I always hope that the piece will bring lots of pleasure to the purchaser...as much as it has given me in making it.
Thank you for visiting AliCat Studio. All my hand-fabricated art jewelry is designed and created by me in my studio in Clermont, Florida. I use Sterling Silver, Argentium Silver, 14/20 Gold-filled, Copper, Brass, Pearls and Designer Gemstones. I work very hard to make sure all my items are of the highest quality and standards and made to last for years to come. Earring wires are always hand made from Sterling Silver, Argentium Sterling Silver or 14/20 Gold-filled wire. It takes more time and work, but feel they look and wear better. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I love making it!
All my jewelry is shipped in gift boxes and wrapped in ribbon.
I love hearing from my customers, so feel free to contact me at: alicatstudio [!at] gmail.com
