Get to Know

I love Sterling Silver and I love rocks. I learned the art of Fabrication, (starting with flat silver), in 2006. I make everything by hand in the MB Sterling Designs Studio, aka. my garage. I also use copper, brass, and accents of gold filled wire in my designs. I have been an active member of the Creative Metal Arts Guild (CMAG) in Portland, Oregon, for several years. After 32 years of teaching Middle School, I am now, enjoying creating one of a kind pieces of jewelry. Enjoy!

    Turquoise has always been my favorite stone. This line of pendants and earring were designed for last year's St.Paul Rodeo.

    This Sterling Silver watch bracelet was a custom order for a friend. She chose the symbols, and turned me loose to use my imagination. She wears it everyday.

    This is my version of Yin and Yang, positive space and negative space. I made these in my early days of learning how to solder...they are my favorites.

    I am often asked to donate pieces of jewelry to local fund raisers in my local community. It is an honor to donate, especially if the proceeds go to children, here in Yamhill County, Oregon.
