I fabricate my originals in silver. Most of my pieces are made with granulation, engraving techniques, and a significant amount of sawing. I do the finishing with a flex shaft. Originals are then sent to a casting company to be moulded and cast. I then add bezels, enamel, set stones, polish them, and embellish with precious and semi-precious stones & pearls. I enamel using the wet packing technique, and use a kiln to fire enamel. I use a wide range of materials including, shells, bone, coral, amber, wood, etc. I make all of my ear wires. I do use some commercial chains. My designs are inspired by my drawings, nature and the jewelry of other times and cultures.
