Every piece of metal silver, gold or copper jewelry in my booth and on my website is made by hand and entirely by me and only me. I have no studio helpers for either design or creation of the jewelry; it is my pleasure and my passion to design each and every jewelry piece myself.
Every piece of jewelry starts with round sterling silver wire or flat "sheet" sterling silver. The original and most popular jewelry designs are made of rings of very specific sizes; if the sizes are not exactly correct, the jewelry will either be too stiff to wear comfortable or too loose and will not hold the design. Each ring is made and finished by hand in my studio in south Louisiana.
It may surprise you to know that I am largely self-taught although I have taken many jewelry classes both locally and across the country.
