Gorgeous gemstones and rich textures.
Each pieces starts with the focal gemstone, cut and polished by my partner / husband. Once the stone is completed the construction begins from the manipulation of wire and sheet metals. Textures are achieved from stamping, forging, and the reticulation of silver. Intense color awareness allows me to capture subtle colors found within the focal gemstone. I utilize accent stones or hand applied patinas and the mixed metals of high karat gold and silver.
