WHAT MATERIALS DO YOU USE?
I use sterling silver and fine silver in my designs. Sterling silver offers many different finishes and patinas to give my jewelry a unique look and interesting textures. I oxidize some of the sterling silver pieces to give a look of depth and drama. I may use a patina that gives the jewelry the look of fine silver with a soft pearly finish. I can also matte the surface to keep it from looking too polished and of course, I can polish the surface to give it the mirrored look.
I occasionally include fresh water pearls, precious and Simi-precious cabochon stones and other natural elements such as coral.
HOW DO YOU MAKE YOUR PIECES?
I hand construct each of my pieces. I use traditional metalsmith techniques such as forging, soldering, cold connections, sawing, piercing, repoussé, chasing, raising, texturizing, stamping and occasionally I will have components cast for me. My process is slow and a bit laborious but, I put sincere care and inspiration into each piece.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY JEWELRY?
To store your jewelry, the best thing to do is keep it in an air tight plastic bag. I ship all my jewelry with a specially treated plastic bag that will retard any oxidation occurring when you are not wearing it. I will send with all my pieces instructions on how to clean and restore the original finish. Because of the small amount of copper in sterling silver, jewelry made of sterling silver will tarnish but it is simple and easy to bring it back to its original finish.
