In my work, I use traditional metalsmithing techniques. All of my designs and metalwork are created using eco-friendly metals and gem quality natural stones. I work with sterling silver and gold. I am sawing, forming, piercing, sanding and soldering, cutting and sanding. Handcrafted pieces begin as a raw wire and sheet of sterling. Designs include high-quality semi-precious gemstones and custom cut designer cabochons and found objects. As a metalsmith, my true passion is for using designer cut cabochons to create limited edition and one-of-a-kind jewelry designs for you.
