A richly textured copper cuff is accented with a single gleaming fine silver ball.

Handsawn from a copper sheet, textured with hammers, then oxidized and buffed to a soft shine, this cuff is 1 1/2 inches in width, and sized for a 7 - 7 1/4 inch wrist.

This cuff is made to order, so I can adjust the size - just let me know your wrist size in the messages to seller section. Please allow 2-3 days for fabrication.

A set of 5 rustic stacking rings in my Pebble Road hammered texture. These are fun to mix and match, and are great worn 2 or three at a time, or all five together. I find that when I wear my own stack I am always "re-arranging" the pebbles - kind of like one of those zen pebble gardens!

The rings are created from 12g 1/2 round sterling wire, hammered for texture. The pebbles are made from fine silver scrap, no two are alike, and the set includes graduated sizes from large (about 3mm) to tiny (1mm).

A rustic copper cuff, hand cut and hammered into a rufflled edge, is accented with a sweet brass buttercup. Bring the relaxation of a walk in the woods to your busy day when you wear this cuff.

The cuff is made from copper sheet that is thick enough to be substantial, and still light enough to be comfortable, and measures 1 1/4 inches wide with a 3/4" brass flower. Slightly adjustable, the cuff will fit wrists from 6 to 7.5 inches. If you need a smaller or larger size, please let me know in the message to seller when you place your order

The copper has been oxidized and polished, and most people are able to wear copper with no problems. I can also coat the cuff with a lacquer sealer. If you prefer it to be sealed, please let me know in the message to seller when you place your order. Thanks so much!

The Incredible sparkle of moissanite and a bit of whimsy are combined in a delightful ring that is sure to capture attention whenever you wear it.

Sturdy enough to wear every day, the flower is cut from thick sterling sheet and adorned with a 5mm moissanite in the center. I don't often use stones that are not naturally mined, but moissanite is very special! Be sure to read the info about the stone below, and if you have time, watch the video that I have provided a link for as well.

Ring band is made from comfortable 1/2 round wire in an 8g weight, not too heavy, and not too light - perfect for a ring meant to last a lifetime.

This ring can be made in any size, including halfs, quarters and anything in between. Fit is guaranteed, and there is no charge for re-sizing if it is not perfectly comfortable when you try it on after receiving it.

Please let me know your ring size in the notes to seller when you check out. Thanks so much!





*******What is Moissanite?*******
The mineral moissanite was discovered by Henri Moissan while examining rock samples from a meteor crater located in Canyon Diablo, Arizona, in 1893. At first, he mistakenly identified the crystals as diamonds, but in 1904 he identified the crystals as silicon carbide. The mineral form of silicon carbide was named moissanite in honor of Moissan later on in his life. The discovery in the Canyon Diablo meteorite and other places was challenged for a long time as carborundum contamination from human abrasive tools.

Until the 1950s no other source, apart from meteorites, had been encountered. Later moissanite was found as inclusion in kimberlite from a diamond mine in Yakutia in 1959, and in the Green River Formation in Wyoming in 1958. The existence of moissanite in nature was questioned even in 1986 by Charles Milton, an American geologist.

Moissanite, in its natural form, is very rare. It has only been discovered in a small variety of places from upper mantle rock to meteorites. Discoveries have shown that moissanite occurs naturally as inclusions in diamonds, xenoliths, and ultramafic rocks such as kimberlite and lamproite. They have also been identified in carbonaceous chondrite meteorites as presolar grains.

Since 1998, when the company Charles and Colvard created a proprietary process to create moissanite in a lab, it has been regarded as an excellent diamond substitute, with optical properties and light refraction that actually exceed those of diamond.

Here is an excellent video that shows this gorgeous stone:

Simple and elegant with a pattern of swirling leaves and flowers that reminds me of an old tapestry, this sterling silver bangle is the perfect accent when worn alone or stacked with other bangles.

This set of 3 stacking rings highlights a beautiful round sky blue turquoise in the center. Turquoise and sterling silver have always been one of my favorite combinations, reminding me of the sun on my face under a cloudless blue sky in summer.

The 10mm turquoise stone is set on hammered sterling silver, and accented with a two patterned sterling bands, one a beaded design, and one a woven design, which are lightly oxidized to bring out the detail. The center band set with the turquoise is bright silver, not oxidized. If you prefer all three bands to be oxidized, please let me know in the message to seller when you place your order.

This ring set can be made in any size - if you don't see your size in the selection box, let me know what size you need in the message to seller.

A single cranberry red 8mm garnet is set on a slender but sturdy band of shiny sterling silver. The lacy filigree bezel is a perfect accent for the smooth garnet.

Set of 7 hammered sterling silver chakra rings. These are beautiful worn all together on one finger, or separated and worn on multiple fingers. The stones are all natural stones, measuring 3mm round. Stones are: ruby or red garnet, carnelian, citrine, emerald or green onyx, sapphire, iolite, and amethyst. Note: The stones I use for the red and green colors will vary according to what my suppliers have available in the best quality. Sometimes I am unable to get pretty ruby and emerald stones in the 3mm size, and use garnet and green onyx.

Bands are approximately 2mm in width, and the entire stack measures 14mm wide. However, when worn all together on the same finger, they measure about 16 to 17mm, about 5/8" inch.

A golden butterfly of pure brass rests on your your finger to remind you of blue skies and spring breezes. A shiny wide band of hammered silver provides the perfect backdrop for this vintage style brass butterfly.

The ring measures 5/8" wide (15mm), and I make them from 20g sterling silver, which is a nice substantial weight, but not too thick. I can make the ring in any size. Wide bands fit best if they are 3/4 to a whole size larger than your normal ring size.

Hoop earrings made with fine silver in a textured satin finish almost like leather. These rustic hoops will show off your summer tan brilliantly with their almost white finish, and are sure to become a favorite for everyday wear.

The earrings are made from thick .999 pure silver wire, which has been heated almost to the melting point to fuse them together. Forged by hand to create a lovely organic texture, they are meant to have a rustic shape, and are not perfect circles. Earrings measure slightly over 3/4" (about 20 to 21mm), and dangle approximately 1.25" including the handmade fine silver earwires.

I got my start as a metal smith by learning to fuse fine silver, and I still love to work with it. Fine silver is slightly softer than sterling, and does not tarnish nearly as quickly. Many people find that it never tarnishes at all (the amount of tanish on jewelry depends on how much you wear it, and your body chemistry).
