message in a bottle

This is what I think is the last of the Asian inspired series.
It all lead up to this.
Two pieces of silver connected by a copper rivet.
Top silver piece has been patterened using a rolling mill,
and it swivels.
2mm red coral, sterling silver and one copper rivet


mother of pearl earrings

I love taking found objects and setting them into jewelry.
The mother of pearl is from a vintage set of cufflinks.
I took the picture before adding the ball posts to the smallest hoop.
Once in awhile I get so intrigued by the object I've made
the function-jewelry part is secondary.
-this is one of those times.


torch burn

This is what sterling silver can look like after being under a torch.
Normally you would toss it in some acid to clean it.
I like to call it 'The Dirty Doughnut'.
It is a hollow closed form
hand constructed
all sterling silver
strung with radiant freshwater pearls.
