A handsome beast of a necklace. As pictured, and so much better. The links are big, glossy, silky smooth to the touch. This necklace caught my eye years ago, and I wanted it so much I was actually nervous to order it. But I'm wearing it now—so happy. I was afraid that a paperclip chain would look ordinary once worn, but it rests on the body just as it does in the listing photo. It's distinct and beautifully made. Worth every penny. Renee included a lovely note, and it was gorgeously packaged. Thank you!! (Not the best photographer but maybe you can understand the size)

Awesome, beautiful piece!!! Highly recommend!
Modern classic jewelry with inventive design and detailed textures.
I love hammering metal. I REALLY love hammering metal on my anvil. My anvil is a little piece of history. It has been in my family for over 100 years. It started out working for the Illinois railroad, and then took a journey to a farm in central Illinois. From there, it ended up rusted, dirty, and forgotten in a storage unit where I discovered it a few decades later. I hauled the 150 pound beauty out of there and into my studio. Then, it became mine.
It has grooves and rough spots, weird carved out areas that were once where tools and metal parts were formed. I love the nuances of the surface. Every piece of jewelry I make passes over the surface of that anvil in one way or another. For some pieces, whole development takes place there; other pieces just briefly pass its surface...
It is what makes my pieces unique. There are no anvils quite like mine and not coincidentally, no other jewelry quite like mine. I take great pride in making pieces that capture rich surface textures. And, I love the idea that each piece of jewelry takes a little bit of history on to its next adventure. It makes each piece authentic.
The intent of my work is to create pieces that capture a feeling, a connection being made and translating that into a wearable piece. The connections, memories, feelings, interpretations are manipulated into patterns, textures and metal drawings. Sometimes I discover things a long the way and develop a new path to the finished piece. Its part of what I enjoy most about the process of creating.
Constant thirst for knowledge has me exploring, refining and learning everyday. Immersion in my craft, feeds my soul. It is who I am. Know that the passion I put into every piece is truthful and real. It is my voice, my soul. From my hammer and heart, it becomes yours. May you find the same joy in wearing my work that i have found in creating it.

Custom Designing and Commission work
Please visit my custom design page on my website for more detailed information on custom design or commissioned work:
With proper care, your jewelry can be worn for years and even generations. My work is made with quality materials and sturdy construction. Each style and piece has their own specific care instructions, but follow these basic guidelines:
>>store jewelry in individual boxes or safely not rubbing against other jewelry or hard surfaces.
>>rough activities or places your jewelry will come in contact with hard or rough surfaces, jewelry should be taken off.
>>hot tubs, hot springs and swimming pools all can cause jewelry to tarnish or react to your skin. Jewelry should be taken off when doing these activities.
I size according to my studio's sizers and mandrel. There is some minor discrepancies between different sizers and mandrels. Please be sized more than once to ensure that I am getting a size that is accurate. Wide rings (over 4mm) need to be sized on wide sizer. Narrow rings and comfort fit style need to sized on a narrower sizer.
If the design allows, I will resize the ring the first time for free not including shipping costs.
Please contact me for details before sending a ring back.
