QUALITY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP
Each piece is handmade by me with care and attention to detail. Whether you are purchasing jewelry for yourself or to give, you are investing in something that is meant to be loved & cherished for a long time.
PROCESS AND MATERIALS
Metal Clay: Metal clay is metal that has been pulverized into microscopic size particles. They are mixed with cellulose and water to a clay-like consistency. This material is worked like clay, dried and sanded. Once the finish work has been complete, it is fired in a kiln at a high enough temperature to burn out the cellulose binder. Once the binder burns out, the metal particles start moving closer together in a process called sintering. Once sintered, the final object is 18-28% smaller. It is a solid metal. There are no traces of binder in the final product. I primarily work with fine silver (99.9% silver), but occasionally use sterling silver (92.5% silver), bronze, steel and copper clays.
Sheet Metal: All of the items that are formed from copper, brass, silver or nickel sheet are hand cut and formed.
Etched Metal: All of the etched metal in my shop is either copper, brass, or bronze. I utilize a chemical free etching process called electrolytic etching. It uses electricity and a salt water solution to remove metal particles to create the final design. It is a fairly simple process that requires no acid, which is far friendlier to the environment.
Enamel: All of my enamel pieces are made with ground glass. I sift varying grades of ground glass onto metal and fire it in a kiln to melt the glass and fuse it to the metal base. Most pieces are enameled on both the front and back sides. This is important because of expansion and contraction of both the metal and the glass. Only items that are of a significant thickness are enameled on the front surface only (Champleve) and it will be noted in the listing.
