Skills and Techniques
I fabricate all of my metal work from sheets of metal, metal wire, gemstones and materials which can be carved such as stone and antler. I mainly work with sterling silver. Fabrication involves sawing, filing , shaping, soldering the parts together, stone setting, and sanding and polishing. I do not buy finished ornamental metal parts to include in my work, and I make everything you see here myself from basic raw materials.
