My unique jewelry is created with handmade chain, ocean-tumbled beach stones and fabricated hollow beads. All of my pieces are crafted from sterling silver, copper and brass metals that are oxidized and given an antique matte finish.
Each handmade chain starts with round wire in different gauges. This wire is wrapped into a coil and cut with a jeweler’s saw into separate links. Each link is soldered with a jeweler’s torch and hammered flat, then textured with a rolling mill. These soldered joints are cut open, married to the next link then re-soldered. All of my handmade chains are created using this technique.
