Announcement   Hello! So nice to see you!
I LOVE to Instagram - especially special orders and daily quick 'what's on my bench' type stuff, intermingled with some not-quite-work things. If you're interested in following me there, you can find me here: http://instagram.com/manicmetals

<<<METAL & GEMSTONE INFORMATION>>>

Every piece of jewelry I make is made by my hand, in my studio in Rochester, NY. I do not hire others, but, occasionally, my family will help with packing, shipping, and inventory. Other than that, I am a one-woman operation.

ETHICAL - I get all of my metal from Rio Grande. This means that if it's silver, it is certifiably ethically mined or comes from reclaimed or recycled metal. Copper is considered by Rio as ' likely made primarily or exclusively with recycled metal' though they haven't established this with complete certainty on all copper they sell.

I try to use hand-cut stones when I can. I appreciate the work, time, andd skill involved -my grandfather was a lapidary and taught people to cut stones for many years.

Thanks so much for supporting handmade crafters and artisans - we really appreciate it!

About

I make jewelry and small scale sculpture. Sometimes I make other stuff too.

I am a metalsmith, wife, and mother, but that doesn't say much. I love to learn things, experience new places, see things, make stuff, and otherwise nerd out.

I've been making things since before I can remember. My mom encouraged this and sent me off to art camps, art classes at the local schools in the area, even to the Creative Workshop here in Rochester. I applied and was accepted to School of the Arts, a local art based high school. After that I went on to a local college where I earned my BFA in dimensional arts, which includes metal and sculpture. Since then I take sporadic classes in various media to keep my work fresh and ever-evolving, but mostly I play with materials, shapes, and colors until I find something that really speaks to me, then I put it all together and send it off into the world and hope it finds a loving new home.

I live in Rochester, New York, where it's never warm enough, with my husband, son, and our ever-evolving menagerie of animals.

Thank you for your interest in my work, and for the opportunity to share it with the world.

Due to the handmade nature of my work no two pieces are ever the same. Because I am not a machine there will be imperfections, proof of the human interaction between tool and metal.

All purchases will be packed in a pretty little recycled paper jewelry box and wrapped with a shiny ribbon. It will be packed suitably for shipping and always looks great for gift-giving. If you would prefer another form of packaging please convo me.
