Tom's Foolery Jewelry - Sterling Silver, Hammered & Mixed Metal Jewelry

Tom’s Foolery- Creative Designer, Jewelry Maker - “Passion at Work”
I specialize in mixed metal jewelry, sterling silver jewelry, chainmaille and more. From earrings and bracelets to music note pendants and elegant necklaces. My jewelry collection is perfect for everyday wear, weddings, and perfect for gift giving.

IT'S ALL IN THE NAME :
Where did the name Tom’s Foolery Jewelry come from? Yes it is a play on words. A friend would call and ask me what I was up to and I would say fooling around - tinkering. Thus that’s the name and it is a fun and easy name for customers to remember. You can’t be serious all the time.

AFFORDABLE JEWELRY WITHOUT SACRIFICING QUALITY :
Quality and Your Satisfaction are my goals. It is very important that you love your jewelry and get compliments every time you wear it from someone. If you’re not happy I want to know about it and try to make it right. You wearing my jewelry is my advertising if you don’t wear it and it sits in your jewelry box it is a loser.

HOW TOM'S FOOLERY JEWERY WAS CREATED :
The Beauty of handmade jewelry is that every piece is unique and has its own story and the artist becomes part of the story. The story continues on with you the customer. The creative process amazes me. It has becomes a magical thing for me. I can pick up a boring strip of wire and sheet and the amazing journey starts with an idea and ends with a beautify piece of handmade jewelry.

My passion for creativity started over 30 years ago working with wood, stained glass, fused glass and now being a jewelry maker. Arriving at this destination was an accident as most things in my life. My yearning to learn new and more demanding techniques has altered my focus completely. Jewelry has so many different roads where mind, heart and soul comes together and becomes a major part of the process.

MY PASSION FOR LEARNING AND EXPANDING MY JEWELRY LINE :
Over the years my desire to create has become the most demanding and exciting force in my life. I cannot imagine my work standing still, not moving to a higher challenge with unexpected twists on the path. If I had to describe myself in just a single word it would be driven. I am very passionate at whatever I do. I cannot slow down learning. I love learning and using my hands. All I need in my life is to somewhere and use my hands and keep it simple as “Keb’ Mo says. I am a Maker. I see something and go I think I can make that. I challenge myself to do just that.

All the different techniques I have learn has been from the School of Hard Knocks. I attempted to take a jewelry making class and lasted 3 sessions. It interfered with my real job and just could not attend. What I have learn has been over the internet, reading and watching videos. I am gratefully all the talented and giving individual that post videos etc. on YouTube. It gives me just enough knowledge to attempt some of the different techniques.

My main focus in the past had been ChainMaille and Dichroic glass. What I have found in Jewelry everything moves on. What was in style last year can be out of style this year? When I first started building for art shows it was about production. Working a full time job I had to build, build, and build. When the show season starts I have little time to create. I also want to create pieces that anyone can afford. The tide has turn. I still build some production pieces, but it is becoming more about the art. Some of my pieces are for that one special customer not for everyone.

My latest fascination has been saw piercing or fret work and Mixed Metals. Using just simple basic tools drill, jewelers saw, files and sandpaper and a lot of time. It is a very detailed, time consuming art. Typically pieces take about 3 hours to compete. When I get done with most pieces I can set back and say “Wow, I like that.” I have learn to be patient with my work and one day maybe with people.

Thanks for browsing my store. If I can answer any questions fell free to email me.
Kindest Regards, Tom

Dream – Believe – Create.
