ABOUT MY JEWELRY
"I craft each piece in solid sterling silver (925) and accent parts with Gold Verme'. Gold Verme' is a thin layer of real gold on the sterling silver. I work in a multitude of traditional techniques but in addition I have developed a few techniques of my own for creating unique textured finishes. Some I hammer into the silver and others I carve or brush but in all cases, I use tools with different shapes to get a variety of interesting textures. The "Pave' Diamond Look" you see on most of my work, is a faceted texture that I hammer deep into the silver. It reflects light and sparkles like diamonds to create the brilliant display you see, without the use of stones. I hope my jewelry brings you as much pleasure as it has to me creating it."
