This ring is gorgeous, but I don't wear it that often because it (obviously) tends to get snagged in my knitwear, but it's great for special occasions. It's also pretty sturdy, so the metal doesn't bend.

Love is love is love is love is love, and I LOVE these earrings! They are perfect, go with everything, they're fun but classic, the perfect size, the perfect everything! Shirley's work is impeccable & I should know because I now probably own more of Shirley's WearArtThou creations than she does! I also got a second pair of earring, the silver teardrops, and those are magical, luminous, radiant, dazzling, glowing, gleaming, scintillating, lustrous wonder. They're like mithril! Amazing. Shirley also made some custom pearl cocktail picks (Christmas gift for my brother & his partner) and I didn't get to the review in time, but those too are divine and so unique. Her work is a portrait in silver of who she is as a person: elegant, classic, unfussy, beautiful, truly unique, fun, creative, caring perfection. (yes, I'm a fan!)

About

Create. Grow. Share....Bliss.

Once a seasonal hobby has now grown into a love of squirreling hours away inside my studio that actually does sit above the garage. An evening course in silversmithing 14 years ago has evolved in a lot of trials, and yes, errors. Some pieces do end up in my scrap pile to be recycled but I enjoy the 'figuring it out' part - it's the problem-solver in me.

Coming from a large family of creative people spawned that creativeness and it was natural to love sewing and drawing. Seeing a fresh box of sharpened pencil crayons can take me back to that moment of childhood excitement - holding a box of creative heaven.

As a child, I watched my dad disappear into the back room to come out hours later with a small chair or table... my mom and older sisters made us special occasion dresses. With limited funds, you made things back then. I'm thrilled to see a trend to get back to those roots; to get back to growing food; to build with your own two hands - the satisfaction always and still amazes me.

My happy place: my studio and my garden.

I couldn't do this without my creative and supportive better half who calls me from the tool store to see if I need anything; builds my shelves; and makes small wooden disks for my necklaces. Creative in his own right, design feedback is a shout away.

We are committed to environmental sustainability so all our woods come from Certified Sustainable Forests (CSF).

The mining of most new precious metals, including silver, negatively impacts the environment and cultures surrounding mines. I buy my silver from 100% pre-produced sources that have been refined down to their purest forms and forged into new clean metal. We can all take steps to minimize the effects on the environment buy supporting handmade products that are not manufactured in large commercial supply. Thank you!!

I would be happy to work with you on a custom design piece. Full payment is required prior to production and are non-refundable.
