art for the artists
The Silver Twig Shop was born from requests from fellow artists who wanted cast, natural components to use in their designs. This shop is one of those life experiences I feel I was 'led' to. I am so very grateful to all my customers who have helped make it a success!
I offer a variety of components cast from natural botanicals. A few of the items in my shop were made available because of specimens that have been sent to me by various customers from around the world. Being a part of artists sharing the joy of creating with other artists is an honor. I am continually astonished by the fabulous designs, created with my castings, that my customers have shared with me. Artists are amazing people!
The raw castings are primarily intended for other metalsmiths, although they have been used as pulls and adornments for handcrafted wood items, and most recently by a sculptor.
My items are hand cast by me in the USA. All handmade items are solid sterling silver, solid karat gold, or bronze.
My other etsy shops:
Everything in my life is art. It must be. I insist.
As a silversmith, I've always wished for a place to purchase unfinished sterling components that are solder ready. It's a bit disheartening to purchase finished components and burn up that extra finishing cost the moment I put a torch to it.
Since I now have a casting studio, I am able to offer unique, natural, botanical components to my fellow artists as raw castings. My castings can be soldered in your designs as you wish. I also offer finished handmade charms and components for assembly jewelry artists.
The suppliers I use for precious metal casting grain only process recycled metals.
Please contact me if you need a special quantity or custom casting. I would be very happy to work with you! You may use the etsy convo system or my direct email thesilvertwigshop [!at] gmail.com
