Ladybugs aren’t as cute in real life as their cartoon counterparts would imply… but that never stopped anyone from liking them!

This adorable not-so-little bug is worn on one finger, but sprawls across adjacent fingers. Hand-forged from copper sheets, the spots were achieved by a combination of dapping and liver of sulphur patina, which was then carefully sanded off on the body. The result is a black-and-bright-copper cocktail ring that is as cute as a bug!

Well… a cartoon bug, anyway 😉

Not for sale.

Back in the day… I was feeling a little nostalgic when I designed this necklace. A constructed box of soldered copper sheets, these little phone pendant has two bronze “bells” and a bunch of little copper accents, including mouthpiece and crank-handle. The best part is the clasp: the necklace is closed by hanging the earpiece on its hook!

My first attempt at metalsmithing! Cut by hand from 20-gauge copper and bronze sheets, the various pieces were then hand-forged, soldered and/or riveted together, and colored using various patinas.

Finished piece measures approximately 5.5″ x 3″ x .75″, and features a hand-made pinback for wear as a brooch.

Not for sale.

Russian Jade, antique copper, and ivory glass pearls (both round and rice), combine for a lovely combination a Russian-speaker might call красивый, or “beautiful”!
