This is such a beautiful piece of personalized artwork, and such a special gift for someone who is always reading! I was surprised at how substantial the bookmark is----not a thin sheet, but a thick, sturdy piece of copper. Hannah was quick to reply, very flexible, and her friendliness came through in emails. I wouldn't hesitate to order again from her. Thank you, Hannah!

Amazing one of a kind artwork! Seller contacted me very quickly, made sketches for preview within a day and stayed in touch. Everything was perfect!

I LOVE THIS BOOKMARK SO MUCH. The artist worked with me to put the quote and design I wanted on a rainbow-patina bookmark that turned out beautiful! Highly recommend!

Creating One Piece at a Time

Silver Serpent Studio is a small, home-based metalworking and silversmithing business owned and operated by Hannah Trost. From start to finish, each piece is designed, created, finished, and photographed by a single person.

This means that every pendant, bookmark, and art piece is made with care and precision. Each one is unique - I strive to make sure this is so. I also welcome custom pieces!

Captured Earth Jewelry Series - These pendants are all made with hand-selected and often specially designed cabochons – no two are alike. Each cabochon has been shaped and polished by local rock-hound aficionados and carefully inspected before purchase - no dye/fake colors nor visible flaws/cracks here! Many of the stones I use are native to the western United States and have even been collected by my sources during the warmer months. I’m constantly surprised at the natural, vibrant colors our earth has created!

Heirloom Bookmarks - Made from copper, brass, or aluminum, these bookmarks can be customized with personal quotes, favorite animals, artwork, flame painting, and so much more! These bookmarks make memorable gifts for book lovers, special occasions, or for yourself, bringing a smile each time a book is opened!

    Art has always been one of my passions. I love working with my hands, so it's no surprise that I've embraced silversmithing & metalworking. I'm always trying new techniques and challenging myself - which means new designs are always coming!
