Kathy M Anderson - Jewelry Gallery


#1

Golden Ram Metalsmithing
Del Norte, Colorado. USA

Through all the impediments I have faced in an interesting life from operating heavy equipment, raising sheep, horses and cows, divorce after 25 years of marriage and raising a phenomenal son to go off to be accepted at Colorado School of Mines, I have always made my jewelry, it is my passion.

Materials: silver, brass, copper, Aquamarines
Dimensions: 1"

My own very distinctive design starts with flat metal, pieces are cut and shaped, every small piece at a time and after multiple soldering operations and putting each piece on one-at-a-time with tweezers, the earrings are finished. The top piece is domed and pieces are fitted under and around the domed piece so these are not flat. These are very time consuming but I always enjoy putting together each piece and figuring out the intricacies of fitting each small part.
