● My never-reproduced adornments and their purpose in the world is to change the way we as humans, especially women, view our accessories. In a world inundated with mass produced accessories and over used names that represent those objects, I am challenging the status quo when it comes to "Who are you wearing?"

These one of a kind creations take time • time and patience • patience perhaps being the keyword, something this craft has definitely taught me over time. I’ve been practicing silversmithing and collecting gemstones for many years. If you’re reading this and have experienced the custom order process with me, you are somewhat aware of the time that’s involved. But many of these pieces begin before ever engaging in any custom order conversations. Many of these pieces began long ago when I found the first gemstone. Perhaps at that time I knew what I wanted to create, although at many other times, the stone may have just caught my eye. As with this #WhiteBuffalo#StatementRing I acquired each of these stones at different times over an extended period of time with absolutely no intention of bringing them together to create this piece. Working with a delightful and also very insightful lady, together we agreed how amazing this combination was. And then, the design process began. This can be a quite natural process for me and as with this ring, when the idea came to me I acted and created this unique #gemstonering that my very clever customer named “Milky Way”. This is just one example of how these creations come to be. Many other pieces are created with a definite design and/or style in mind. With this craft, the sky’s the limit🌟Keep creating #silversmith ✨Enjoy the craft and your journey✨To my very valued customers: Many thanks🙏to you all for your continued support. I truly enjoy working with each and everyone of you to create these pieces of #oneofakindjewelry and look forward to future opportunities💙
I just love how the colors turned out on this brass pendant! I soldered a copper tree and brass sun with my #blazertorch . Polished to a high shine and then oxidized. I can't believe my tree oxidized to a pretty shade of green LOL.
Earrings! My favorite jewelry item to wear, even though I don't make them as often... because earrings have design limits that pendants (my #1 favorite to make, 2nd favorite to wear) don't have: lightweight, matching, movement, availability of interesting stones in smaller matched pairs.

Oregon plume agate/turquoise doublets, "Stinking Water" plume agate, gypsy/boho style sterling silver, and pale pink ocean jasper. I use 20 gauge .935 argentium sterling silver for all of my ear wires (better for copper allergies, firmer, cleaner granulation, tarnish resistant)
I’m seriously crushing on these @stectormetals sterling earrings from her RV exclusive collection. That’s right, can’t get these beauties anywhere else. DM me for details or stop by the studio Thurs-Sat 11-6.
