Silver Pieces and Mixed Metals

In these collections you'll find organic paired with Industrial influences. I use precious metals such as fine silver, sterling, copper, "fire-painted" copper, brass and bronze in my jewelry. I love to work with fine silver. It is the purest silver at 99.9% pure and is more tarnish resistant than sterling. In many of these pieces I create a shape out of fine silver wire and then torch fuse and hammer to the desired affect. A dimpled affect may be achieved which glistens and shines, or a mat affect can happen which works beautifully with many of my designs. Sometimes I contrast bright with dark (oxidized) silver and combine fine silver with sterling chain or wire as the design warrants. My latest love is hand sawing sheet metal to create delicate, organic designs.

Please note: Since I use genuine and many times rare gemstones in my designs, particular stones are limited in quantity. Due to the individuality of each gemstone and the handcrafted nature of the materials used, no two pieces will be exactly alike.

Oxidized/patinaed (intentionally darkened) silver is care free and should not be cleaned in silver cleaner. Doing so will remove the patina. Be sure to visit my new 'Caring For Your Jewelry' section under info for more tips on taking care of your precious metal and gemstone jewelry.
