About

Copper Jewelry, Rustic Elements

Commercial store-bought jewelry rarely appeals to me. I want that rustic, handmade feel to my jewelry--unique pieces that capture the personality and essence of the wearer.

My designs have an earthy appeal, offering a sense of history and personal story that is nature based. They are very textural and tactile, appearing time-worn and well-loved.

Copper is my favorite metal--it is so versatile! There is nothing more satisfying than transforming unmarred, shiny copper sheet metal into something hammered, shaped, and torched into a design element that appears weathered and ancient.

I have a versatile home studio filled with natural light (and many, many, plants) that I use for all of my art--jewelry design, painting, photography, printing, packing and shipping. The metal working--hammering and torching--I save for a less flammable area that does not contain paint (or cats ;)
