Reflections in Silver
I design work that is original and 100% hand-fabricated. That means only hands and tools such as pliers, forging hammers, files, and burnishers are used. No molds or jigs that mass produce. My workshop day starts with wire or sheet sterling silver, my hands, and whatever tools I may need to manipulate and cajole the piece I create. From there, it’s a multi-stage process of low-temperature brazing (soldering), forging, cabochon setting, grinding, and finishing polish that brings out the exceptional shine! I’m proud to use a unique polishing method that helps inhibit tarnish, and many have told me that my work stays shiny longer than others!
