I’ve been creating silver jewelry pieces for several years. All of my pieces are made from scratch, using silver material purchased from reputable suppliers. Nothing I make is merely assembled from store-bought parts. I cut, grind and polish my own cabochons, using all natural stones, many of which are locally sourced in Western North Carolina. I look at a stone and immediately know if it will become part of a pendant or ring, and what shape it will take on. I try to keep as much of the shape that nature created as possible, so not all of my cabochons are perfect, geometric shapes. My goal is to create works of art that you will enjoy wearing as much as I enjoyed making them. I create these works in my home workshop in Etowah, NC.
