Skills and Techniques

My journey as a Jewelry Designer is mostly ahead of me but, I have learned quite a number of skills in my travels thus far, I use many of them to create unique, mostly "one-of-a-kind" pieces. However, my personal favorite techniques are: wire forming, wire wrapping, wire weaving, forming, forging, shaping, texturing and piercing sheet metals, and assembling using both hot (solder) and cold (rivets) connections. I do have a growing list of techniques to challenge my skills & talent in the futur
