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.

Look similar to Set – 13 August 2011? That’s ’cause it is… a Canadian teacher pal loved the set so much, she commissioned one a wee bit longer to wear for Gay-Straight Alliance Day at her school.

Birthday gift for one of my sisters… Her middle child has Asperger’s, so I thought she’d appreciate having some autism awareness jewelry.

The necklace style is very similar to a Christmas gift last year, but the earrings are very different. Features Miyuki Delica seed beads in the “Aztec” mix by eebeads.com

Custom item; not for sale.

Made this as a graduation gift for my sister. She graduated from UofL’s Brandeis School of Law; the fleur-de-lis for the city of Louisville, and red and black are the university’s colors. There’s a “2011” charm and a grad cap charm, which should be self-evident. The shark is pretty obvious, too and the bird is a “legal eagle”.

Features Byzantine weave chain maille using silver and gunmetal jump rings, and Swarovski® crystal bicones in siam and jet.

Custom item; not for sale.

Christmas gift for my ten year-old niece. Although this piece is a one-of-a-kind, similar pieces could be made using the same techniques.

The necklace “chain” is made of 1/8″ ribbon, knotted to hold the ceramic and glass beads in place.
