This ancient pattern is lovely and strong.

Fine Silver Double Loop-in-Loop

This dense, supple chain is striking all by itself. It can be woven in different sizes: this one is approximately 3/8" thick.

It also makes a lovely bracelet.

Foxtail, Sterling Silver

This interesting pattern makes great necklaces and bracelets. This photo is from a tapered necklace that I donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund Gala in 2007.

Pendants

Dichroic Glass, Freshwater Pearl, Etched Brass, Sterling Silver

I acid-etch brass and copper to make components I can add into other pieces. The glass and pearl are bezel-set, and the brass is riveted on. The silver base is also stamped.

Fused Sterling Silver

This piece was made by fusing sterling wire shapes onto sterling silver sheet. Once melted together, they are permanently bonded.

Fused Fine and Sterling Silver, Mexican Opal

This piece was created by making a framework of sterling silver (for strength), then fusing fine silver across it in interesting lines and shapes. The opal is nestled in like a flower peeking from a trellis.

Fine Silver Fused onto Copper

Primal. The silver takes its own shapes as it flows, forming a eutectic bond with the copper. Any copper left exposed takes on the dark red color you see here, giving a lovely contrast. No two pieces could ever be the same with this technique.

Simple and lovely.

Earrings

Hollow Sterling Silver with Niobium Wire

I created these earrings by etching brass and rolling it with silver to impress the pattern onto the silver, cutting discs from the silver, doming them, and soldering them together.

The niobium wire is completely hypo-allergenic.

Primal. The silver takes its own shapes as it flows, forming a eutectic bond with the copper. Any copper left exposed takes on the dark red color you see here, giving a lovely contrast. No two pieces could ever be exactly the same with this technique.

These remind me of dragons.

Bracelets

Fine Silver Fused on Copper, with  Picasso Jasper and Leopardskin Jasper

The metal tube beads were made by cutting copper tubing to size and fusing fine silver onto each one. The natural colors of the stones complement the metal. The clasp is sterling.

Pins

Dichroic Glass, Bronze, Sterling Silver

The bronze on the bottom of this pin was direct-cast into charcoal. It's riveted in place. The glass is bezel-set, and the silver is stamped.

Clasps

Labradorite and Sterling Silver

Clasps are interesting because there are so many choices in style, materials, and ornamentation.
