Cloisonne enameled pendant on fine silver Petals Collection
This year marks a new direction for my jewelry designs where I'm creating pendants with enamel and cloisonne on fine silver. It's an extremely time consuming and detailed endeavor often requiring between 20 to 30 steps.
The base is a solid 22 gauge pure 99.9% silver. It is very valuable! I prefer working on fine silver because of how reflective it is. I also prefer transparent enamels because they reveal the beautiful quality of glass. Being able to see through solid material is so unique and gorgeous.
I've named this collection "Petals"
It has much more depth, reflection and subtleties of transparent colors than can be captured digitally. I chose a solid sterling silver chain available in 16" or 18".
If you love the moon as I do you must treat yourself or someone special today.
I consider the jewelry making process much like creating little sculptures. I am inspired by elements found in the natural world as well as architecture.
My jewelry designs range from boldly feminine statement pieces to small scale, lightweight and minimal earrings and necklaces. All are set on sterling silver or 14K gold filled and rose gold filled components.
I aim for simple elegance and take precise care to ensure a perfect balance between comfort and style.
I also make originals
in wax and have them cast in sterling silver which I then polish, texture, oxidize or add 24K gold foil with a process known as Keum Boo.
