My work embodies many of the modalities involved in making jewellery. All of my pieces are original designs using fine and sterling silver, copper and bronze.
My silver spoons are sawn, hammered filed, stamped and then designs are created with lead free solder. Semi-precious beads and various metals are added to complete this personal piece.
Many different beautiful, large and small stones that have various attributes are encased in wire and then solder is drawn on adding texture, style, beauty and strength.
Taking silver clay (99.9% pure), I mold it into various shapes, add texture, design and then kiln fire it to create beads. These are then incorporated into bracelets, added to earrings and become different, interesting pendants.
Using sterling Bali beads, handmade glass beads and stones from around the world, chains, wire and all the bits & pieces I find and create, I form necklaces, bracelets and earrings.
