I hand create a number of metals by manipulating sterling silver, bronze and copper into several shapes. I then arrange and solder these shapes onto bronze sheet metal in various configurations. I use a rolling mill to simultaneously compress and stretch the combined metals, thus fine tuning their fluid patterns. Upon completion of each piece of jewelry, I oxidize to accentuate the raised shapes and then lacquer them to help prevent further oxidation. All posts, clutches, ear wires and seamless snake chains are sterling silver.

I have been collecting rocks since I was a small child, so it's no wonder I would choose this direction in my jewelry making. I cut beach stones, primarily from Deer Isle, Maine. I then grind and sand both sides to a satin finish, leaving them natural, as if the ocean just washed over them. I design and make settings for them in sterling silver to create a double sided pendants and open backed rings as shown below.
