About

About Little Brown Bird

My jewelry designs include organic shapes inspired by nature. Each piece is made by hand, by me, in my home studio in Illinois,with personal touches that make every item unique and special. I try to create pieces that are easy to wear everyday from day into evening.

While I love vintage inspired elements, many of my pieces are made using precious metal clays. Using precious metals in this unique form allows me to create pieces with personality unlike anything you will find mass produced. Recycled precious metal clays in silver, bronze, copper, and gold also allow me to continue preserving this amazing planet we live on.

I hope you love wearing your jewelry from Little Brown Bird as much as I loved creating it!

NOTES ABOUT PRECIOUS METAL CLAYS

~The “Green-ness” of precious metal clay:

Eco-friendly Precious Metal Clay, or PMC is one of those strange and unique compounds that amazes the mind and intrigues the senses.

PMC is formed from recycled and reclaimed precious metals such as silver, gold, bronze, and copper. The metals are broken down into microscopic particles and combined with a non-toxic cellulose-based organic binder. It can then be manipulated into whatever shape the artist can imagine. And when fired in a kiln, burns away the binding agent and you are left with 99.9% pure precious metal. Revolutionary in its uses, unending in its capabilities, and still relatively new in the precious metals industry, PMC has become a highly respected medium used by metalsmiths.

~Wearable Artwork

Each piece I create is completely original and one of a kind (OOAK) with all the delightful imperfections of a handmade work of art. Imperfections should not be regarded as defects and do not harm or enhance the structural integrity or durability of the piece. All my fine silver pieces are stamped with the .999FS mark of 99.9% Pure fine silver. Since fine silver is a higher content than that of sterling, special care must be taken to ensure the long lasting beauty of these precious metal treasures. Bending may occur when put under pressure. A natural occurrence of shrinkage is inherent during sintering. For this reason, perfect sizing is not always controllable. While methods are followed to predetermine sizing, especially with rings, every piece of PMC can shrink at different rates, resulting in sizes that may be slightly irregular. While I typically use only the strongest form of PMC for rings, pendants, and charms, and pieces are tumbled for extra hardness, occasionally certain designs require the unique properties of other forms of these precious metals.

~All Natural

In keeping with the eco-friendly quality of PMC, I use only a natural, organic method for oxidizing all of my PMC pieces. PMC is safe for the earth and safe for you!

~Everlasting Beauty

It is recommended that you keep your precious metal pieces sealed in an airtight plastic bag while not worn. Doing this, will prevent tarnishing and the need for cleaning. Do not submerge your precious metal pieces in jewelry cleaning fluids as this may remove some of the oxidation intended to highlight delicate patterns and surface textures. A light cleaning with a clean, dry, soft cloth or a polishing cloth is recommended if tarnishing occurs.

~Uniquely Created

All designs and their images are copyrighted and may not be reproduced or exploited for any use without expressed written permission by the artist and Little Brown Bird.
