Cloisonné is a technique for decorating metalwork objects. The decoration is formed by first adding compartments Made from thin silver wire and then filling them with many tin layers of powdered enamel
Influenced by the abstract, sculptural & flowing designs of nature, I use sterling silver, brass, copper, pearls & gemstones - fabricated, hammered, pierced & strung to create modern wearable art.
Entirely handmade from combinations of silver, copper, brass, bronze. Cold-forming, fabricating, casting & vitreous enameling techniques are applied depending on detail & color objectives.
Metal-smithing methods are used on mixed metal to fabricate botanical-themed jewelry. Most pieces are brushed to a satin finish that elucidates form, while others are oxidized to offer contrast.
I hand manipulate anodized aluminum in different gauges & color hues into weightless hypo allergenic wearable art. Each piece is designed, handmade, displayed and sold by me the artist.
Inlaid wood jewelry using the wet slip method taught to me by a pattern maker from the early auto industry. No stain or color is added.
Fabricated sterling silver jewelry using textural techniques like roller printing, reticulation. Also Keum-boo, the process of applying 24 karat gold on silver. Patina is used to bring out texture.
I fabricate sterling & 14kt. sheet w/hand tools & knowledge of traditional silversmithing: piercing, reticulation, metal forming, chasing, soldering, hollow form construction, forging, mokume, enamel
Precious metal is used to hold trap or cage gems in rough and polished forms.
I create all components of my mixed media jewelry from polymer clay, wire, resin and fiber. I use vibrant colors of polymer clay as well as paints, inks, and mica powders resulting in wearable art
Utilizing traditional metalsmithing techniques I bring together sterling silver and eye catching stones in imaginative ways to create wearable art meant to encourage, uplift and build confidence.
Bead Weaving and Bead Embroidery techniques with my original designs. Hand cut and polished stones, glass beads, crystal and pearls are combined to create layers of color and texture.
Hand fabricated, 3-D, wearable sculpture designs in mixed metals. Techniques include reticulation, acid etching, metal patina, oxidation, and sometimes polymer clay.
