I have been making metal jewelry for 16 years and use mostly sterling silver, copper, and brass. For the past couple of years I’ve included lapidary work in my designs, cutting and shaping stones that have interesting patterns and colors. Natural colors and textures influence my work. I love designing with found objects as well as etched metal for a unique, one-of-a-kind look that can be dressy or casual. Some of the methods I use include riveting, weaving, forging, and etching metals. You will see new designs every year!
