Jewelry pieces are not just trinkets, they
are meaningful works or art. The meanings created with jewelry like
any work of art are very personal and never wrong. These meanings
can be as simple as a memory of who gave us a certain piece or as
deep as a spiritual connection to others and the world we live in.
What ever the meanings and connections we have with a piece of jewelry
are it enriches our lives and can revive our spirits.
With each new jewelry piece I create I keep these meaning in mind
as I am working. I focus not only on the aesthetic design and physical
construction of a piece but also on what the piece may mean to someone
who falls in love with it. I consider the affect my energies and
thoughts have on a piece of jewelry as I am creating it from concept
to forming the metal and setting the gemstones. Because I see that
there is a deeper meaning and connection to jewelry I spend a lot
of my designing time researching not just how to best construct
a design for durability but also what the stones, metals, and symbols
used mean in different spiritual paths throughout history. Where
ever possible I have included the relative source material for these
studies at the bottom of the page.
This site is not intended to be a one stop place for information
because if I were to spend the time needed for that I would never
get any jewelry made and the creation of jewelry and the other pieces
of interest you will find on my site is my passion and meditation.
Honestly I sell the jewelry I create so I can afford to create more.
My prices reflect what I feel is fair for the work and materials
rather than what the jewelry industry deems is the correct price.
With the exception of findings (parts for making jewelry like
bezel cups and jump rings) everything on this site is handcrafted,
nothing here comes to me finished. Bezel cups get soldered to rings
or jump rings to create rings or earrings,
jump rings are hand linked together to create chain
mail items, and sheet metal is hand cut and formed for pendants
and bracelets. What makes this site different
than a lot of other jewelry sites out there is that I use the time
and patience I have to create jewelry pieces not just for sale but
for the meaning behind them. While working on pendants like the
totem animal line I focus on the totem
animal being cut from the metal while the hand saw is removing and
separating the metal creating the image that will be left. Be it
a jewelry piece as involved as the Rampant
Unicorn or Chain Mail Necktie or
as simple as a pair of Cabochon
Dangle Earrings I care about each jewelry piece I create and
the positive impact it can have on the life of its future owner.
Please have a look around, I hope you will enjoy what you see
and consider giving one of my pieces a good home.
