Boston, MA. USA
I have been making unique pieces since 2002 when I started my business VWH Fine Jewelry. I specialize in Florentine engraving using nothing but basic hand engravers (bulini). I incorporates extremely complex open-work patterns (Traforo) into my one-of-a-kind, handmade jewelry. Alloying my own Gold, and with such intricacies, pieces can take months to create using these old-world techniques. I work in both Boston, MA and Florence, Italy, where I continue to explore and teach this art form passed down through generations of Italian artists.
