My handcrafted jewelry is made by only me in my home studio. Handcrafting jewelry is something I love to do using beautiful natural stones and gemstones, Shells, Coral, Pearls and more. Some fine crystals and handmade lampwork beads, or perhaps rustic Krobo beads made of crushed glass by natives in Africa can also be used in my designs. All are complimented by various lustrous metals. I also handcraft jewelry with metals cut from sheets of fine silver (999% silver), bronze, copper, brass and sometimes nickle. The metals are textured with jewelers hammers or embossed with a small embossing machine. I also use a small hand press to form some of my pieces which lends itself to various forms that can also be texturized or have cabochons placed in the piece. A lot of thought goes into every piece and it could take hours to come to a final design. Truly, every piece is made with love.
