The materials used in all of my work include: Solid Sterling Silver (92.5) Fine Silver (0.999) Organic Materials (Coral Amber Fresh Water Pearls and Dinosaur Bone) Precious and Semi-Precious Gemstones. All beadwork is strung on a nylon-coated jewelers cable with an end-to-end weight test at no less than 24 pounds. All designs are original hand-made by me and are inspired by both nature and history. The techniques involved in my work combine beading wire-wrapping techniques and silversmithing work; including a two-week long slip-casting process that turns a real leaf into a solid Fine Silver (0.999) pendant or earring in full relief.
