Announcement   Thank you for perusing Peggy Skemp Jewelry, a gold and silversmith specializing in ethically hand-crafted sculptural scientific illustrations. Peggy implements traditional techniques such as hand-engraving, stone-setting, fabrication, casting, weaving and twining to make her jewelry. The gold and silver used to craft Peggy's intricate sculptural works are recycled and have been assayed for purity. When shopping here today, keep in mind we will never use "silver" or "gold" to refer to plated metal 'color,' but as an indication that the metal is solid 925 sterling silver or 14 or 18k gold, free from nickel and impurities.

In 2014 Peggy's shop moved to the Driftless region of Wisconsin after 10 years in Chicago, IL. The new workshop is located in the Ocooch mountain region, not far from the Kickapoo River, and overlooks a diverse organic orchard of 100+ fruit and nut trees, extensive gardens, a mushroom maze and duck run, all made possible through the support of jewelry patrons on Etsy and Peggy's independent website. Working between Chicago and the Experimental forest farm has enabled the creation of her most technically and conceptually exciting works to date. Peggy's new designs highlight the intricate designs of animal architecture.
Thank you again for admiring Peggy's designs- we hope to see you at our next trunk show or Craft Fair. You can also find Peggy's latest jewelry at the following fine retailers: Goldbug, in Pasadena, CA; Florodora, Chicago; Evolution, NYC; and December Thieves, Boston.

Custom orders and express shipping are available upon request. Don't hesitate to send a conversation with any questions or special requests.
