Tying the Knot

"First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do." --Epictetus

I've been working on new designs in the studio and am thrilled with the results.

I love the way in which you can use fire (a torch) to manipulate metal and come up with new and original designs that are still consistent with the look you are trying to achieve.

Such is the case with these new designs, just added to my Web site,

I have strung sterling silver wire onto stones and then carefully melted each side so as to create a dot of silver on each end. Then I tie the stones around hand-forged metal pieces.

The result is a truly organic, yet modern style that I am really proud of. I hope you like them too!

I will be making new designs incorporating this new element in the coming weeks, and I've added lots of other new designs to the Web site this past week--just in time for Mother's Day!

Since posting these new designs, I've sold quite a few and have received great customer feedback.

Thanks to my loyal customers for
not only supporting my business
but also going beyond to provide feedback about new work!
