Staying true to the Process of “Handcrafted”

Over time I have made some hard choices about what it means to be an "Artist" and what was important to me as an "Artist".
I believe it is important for the Artist to stay close to the creation process. There have been many new technical "advances" that remove critical parts of the process away from the Artist's Hands so that it becomes more Machine-made than Hand-Made.
Sawing, Forging, Soldering, sanding, Filing, Polishing all by hand. It's a long but careful process... it's love and cares creating. It's more than about firing a couple of pieces of metal together in an asymmetrical design.

Many jewelers have taken a different path. but the process is what is true about Me.
