Fine Silver Jewelry For the Adventurous Spirit who loves Style with Substance.

I make each of our fine silver pieces individually, with PMC - Precious Metal Clay. Each piece will be unique, with it's own curves, contours, & markings. Precious metal clay is similar to modeling clay, with recycled silver suspended in an organic nontoxic binder. The clay is sculpted & designed; then dried and carefully filed (no one likes sharp edges - in people, toe nails, or jewelry). After filing, it's fired in a very-hot kiln; the metal particles fuse to form solid metal, the organic nontoxic binder burns away, leaving nearly-pure silver. We tumble our pieces for better durability in daily-wear jewelry, and then add a patina (darken or hand paint) to accent the design.
Most of the solid silver pieces without stones are waterproof and sweatproof - tested by friends in ocean water, and hiking and biking adventures. Many necklaces are made to be light and easy to wear during acitivies - work days, fun nights, and whatever you do for adventure. Just avoid sulphur - which quickly tarnishes silver.

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who couldn’t hear the music.” -Nietzsche

    Owner, Creator, Designer

    I like PMC for many reasons. Precious Metal Clay (PMC) silver is a great medium for jewelry - composed mainly of recycled silver, minimal waste, and the finished piece is simply nearly-pure silver to rest against the skin.

  • Art

    Photographer, Shipper, Husband

    My husband Art is a talented photographer, but also a great shipping and receiving assistant. He is skilled in graphic design and creates the banners as well. He has a special talent in making knots - which comes in very handy for leather work.

  • Valerie

    Creator, Sews Pouches, Sister Extraordinaire

    My sister Valerie creates the beautiful drawstring pouches and gift bags. She brings light and color to everything she does. She has a flair for finding the perfect materials, and a talent as a seamstress!
