Process and passion

I have always been interested in jewelry but never really thought of it as a career until I started studying jewelry in college. I had amazing professors I studied under that taught me that jewelry is a fascinating and ever changing field that has ancient processes that people are still using today, and techniques that have not been around for very long and are still being discovered.

Most of my work are mixed metal pieces. I really find the contrast of the silver and gold, or black and gold stunning. The gold is applied using a process called keum boo which is an ancient Korean technique of applying high karat gold to a silver surface using only heat. I love this because it allows the customer to purchase a piece of jewelry with a bright gold finish without spending as much as a solid gold piece would cost them.

For me to make a beautiful handcrafted piece of jewelry and to bring that to someone making them happy or feel beautiful wearing it is what fuels my passion.

Jewelry will tarnish over time. To keep it looking its best use an appropriate jewelry cleaner for the piece. Be careful with certain stones and pearls so not to damage them.

Items that are plain silver and gold may be cleaned with store bought products. Be careful to use a cotton ball or soft cloth when cleaning certain jewelry with the gold keum boo surface it can scratch easily.

Any piece with a dark patina cannot be cleaned with heavy jewelry cleaners. This is a controlled tarnish that will disappear if cleaned with anti tarnish solutions
