My jewelry is made using the techniques of chasing, repousse, and forging to transform sheet gold and wire into dimensional shape. These pieces are not cast. Each pendant, earring, and ring is an entirely hand fabricated original. Many are one of a kind, while other designs will be fabricated in limited editions of 12. I hand make each individual chain, clasp, jump ring, and ear wire. Reversing my jewelry is always a pleasant surprise, as the back sides are just as beautifully finished as the front sides, and are set with a small stone or pearl. "Art Jewelry"
