Wire wrapped jewelry, earrings, pendants, bolo ties. Copper jewelry. Wire weaving.
Necklaces. Handmade jewelry. Copper Patina.

Making jewelry has always intrigued me. I like learning about the various gemstones and the types of properties that have been associated with them. I like the idea that they have served as talismans in many different cultures for centuries. 

I have been working with wire wrapping techniques for years and have developed my skills in wire weaving, wrapping and bail making. I mostly work in copper. 
My pieces are oxidized using a liver of Sulphur solution to produce a beautiful patina finish. I then polish my pieces and check them for smoothness. In the final step, I finish them with Renaissance Wax, a museum quality crystalline wax that protects the piece and enhances the artistry.
I hope you enjoy my pieces. I enjoy making them and hope that anyone wearing my jewelry feels the love and creativity that went into each unique piece.
