nature lover, rockhound, self taught jeweler. i use the stones i
collect, plus other uncommon stones, cutting and shaping them into
unique designs not conforming to standard shapes and sizes. using
these stones as the focus, i create each unique piece of jewelry
using silver, gold and/or copper. i incorporate contrasts between
polished and unpolished, textured and smooth without traditional
bezels so the stones appear to float between edges.

Wife and I are Jewelers.
My day job is in communications, but my true passion is art,
upcycling and everything in between. My upcycling endeavours usually
end as unique jewelry pieces. I also enjoy working with natural
materials, especially wood, silver and copper.

I am a novice who has been making jewlery for about 5 years,
beading, wire, chainmaille,ect. I have sold a few pieces but mostly
given as gifts. I would like to turn my passion into a very small
part time business in the next few years. Thank you.

I’m a newbee to metalsmithing with only a year and a half under my
belt or should I say on my hammer? I devour everything I can find in
print to educate myself… I love reading jewelry history…I feel
I’m fairly proficient at soldering and design but have a long way to
go…I take classes whenever I can from the Sweetman/Allen Studio in
Lakewood,Co. I’m especially appreciative of my teacher, Richard
Sweetman… I’ve learned so much from him…I love to hammer
things…It takes me outside of myself and is a wonderful way to
relieve stress…Forming shapes and feeling the metal move is an
incredible feeling and always amazes me…I’ve come to the
realization that I will be acquiring tools forever… I love them…
