Lisa Hawthorne - Showcase
Creating jewelry has been a passion of Lisa’s since the mid
seventies, working predominantly in sterling silver, gold, and
With the desire for more color she incorporated enamels
into her works of fine art.
With the use of enamels I feel such freedom of expression, through
imagery, symbols, and the vibrancy of color. I enjoy creating
stories in many of my pieces, portraying moods, and making jewelry
that is fun to wear.
Lisa now lives and maintains a studio in Coquille, Oregon. Primarily
self-taught, she learned her basic metal skills in high school and
then attended the Cranbrook Academy of arts in 1976. She received
the first place award at the 1996 Metal Arts Show held in San
Francisco, California. Her work may be seen in galleries throughout
the west, with the largest collection at the Hawthorne Gallery, in Big

Michael Stevens is a jeweler in Texas, USA. He works in enamel,

Silverfoot - Showcase
The Sprig-of-Rue has been “visually” modeled after one of the most
ancient talismanic symbols modern society has been able to unearth.
This talisman came to be the primary protection symbol for Italian
witches “the Strega”. The initial carving of this piece was done in
wax and then cast using the “lost-wax” method. Molds have been
created, and I now produce this piece in small batch runs.
