I am an accomplished metalworker and silversmith, but not a purist. Traditional techniques such as hammering, piercing, and polishing are standards. Soldering is often combined with rivets, bolts and other cold connecting techniques. I work with gemstones, both cabochons and faceted, but I also utilize found objects such as watch movements or vintage earrings. I like to mix metals. My jewelry is comfortable to wear. Prices range from $18 to $350, with most necklaces in the $39 to $129 range.
