Designing and creating jewelry, reading, camping, riding on the back of my hubbys Harley, Back yard bon fires and cook outs with family and friends
I started designing and creating jewelry 8 years ago. Beading was my first venture in this field of art. I self taught myself to bead, but wanted more. I then began to use wire and was amazed at how much it added to my work. Still wanting more, I started taking metalsmithing classes. I took classes for a year and a half and found that my work became an intricate part of who I am.
My Sophisticated ChainMaille Collection features bracelets, earrings, and necklaces made using Sterling Silver or Solid Copper. Each piece is handcrafted using heavy gauge wire that I hand coil and hand saw. The rings are then linked together creating beautiful pieces of jewelry. Each link is soldered closed bringing these basic ChainMaille weaves to there next level of sophistication.
My Fun and Flirty Dangles Collection features necklaces, bracelets and earrings handcrafted using sterling silver or solid copper metal and precious/ semi-precious natural gemstones. This collection was designed for a woman with a fun and flirty personality with a bit of swing in her step.
My Simply Elegant collection features handcrafted sterling silver round links that have been hand coiled, hand sawed, and soldered. The links are then hammered flat and joined together with double oval links that have also been handcrafted. The piece is then sanded, buffed and polished to a beautiful sleek shine.
My Singled Out Ring Collection features sterling silver or solid copper rings that are handcrafted using a single piece of sterling silver or solid copper wire. The thick 12 gauge wire is hand formed into unique designs. The rings are then soldered, hammered into shape, buffed and polished to a beautiful sparkling shine.
