Artist Statement

I create original jewelry using fine silver in the form of PMC (pure silver in a clay-like base) and wire. Each of my unique components is hand-formed, hand textured almost exclusively with my own etched plates, hand cut with original shapes, and hand cast. Each piece is then kiln fired to burn out the clay binder yielding pure "precious" .999 silver. I then combine the techniques of fusing, hammering, forging, soldering, applying patina and polishing to finish my pieces. I sometimes apply gold details by bonding 24K thin sheet by a process called Keum Boo and sometimes incorporate my own handmade glass beads.Please contact the artist for more information!
