⬥⬥ Creation ⬥⬥
Each piece starts with an idea sketched into my journal. For my jewelry, I then search my drawers for the perfect stone to compliment the meaning, and the design is finalized. Next I take a flat sheet of metal and draw the design on with a sharpie and hand pierce (saw) and then file to smooth edges. Stamped patterns are formed with an anvil and hammer, and then each layer is soldered together with a small torch, cleaned, and prepared for the next soldering step. Once fabrication is done it is cleaned, oxidized, and polished. Then the stone is set, and it is ready to be presented! No two designs are alike. Each one is truly handmade with love.
