Succulent series in the works 

As odd as it seems this is what silversmithing looks like. At least it does when I am doing it.

I am really enjoying this new series I am working on fully inspired by nature using organic materials to make interesting cast small scale sculptural jewelry. 

It’s been a great time 🙂

three roses saddle ring

This new saddle ring has just been added to the shop. Link on the right sidebar 🙂

The rose, one of nature’s sweetest beauties, reminds us that even beauty and sweetness must be tempered. Must be balanced.

Sweet with sour.
Growth and decay.
Life with death.

These roses remind us to remain soft in a hard world.

This substantial ring is one of a kind and was made entirely by my two hands. Three different sizes of roses have been soldered to the saddle ring face below a lovely round cut of banded agate. It is a lovely grey/ purple color with white banding.

The piece has been sanded, oxidized and polished for a comfortable fit and lovely patina and tumbled for strength and texture.

It measures on the mandrel as an 8.75 but will fit best on an 8-8.5 finger due to the width of the band.
