Welcome!

 I work with 99.9 % (pure) fine silver wire, and on occasion copper wire, in various gauges to hand sculpt and weave my own original jewelry designs.  I take great care in creating a balance between the gems and the intricacy of the wire weave, to create a beautifully finished piece that will be a timeless heirloom.  I love working and weaving with wire because of the movement, flow, and texture that can be achieved through this medium.  While I can recreate some of my designs very closely, because of the nature of working with the wire by hand, each finished piece is unique and one of a kind.
