The circular shapes coupled with the hand-hammered natural quality of the silver and copper bowls give the earrings a “mod” look with a raw, organic nuance.

Earrings are approximately 3/4 diameter, earring wires are sterling silver. Hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind. Signed on the back.

Turquoise and Brushed Silver Shadowbox Pendant

Turquoise and Brushed Silver Shadowbox Pendant

This piece is hand-hammered and hollow, one-of-a-kind not only for the stone, but for the body of piece. The back of the opening is blackened for a shadowbox affect. The chain for the pendant runs through the pendant. The turquoise is set into the back of the piece and is protected by the walls and front of the pendant.

I enjoy the modern use of classic southwestern materials – turquoise and silver.

This pendant may be worn anywhere, it’s clean lines make it a beauty for work or play.

It is about 3 inches long, about an inch wide at it’s widest point, and 3/8 of an inch thick.

Plume Agate and Silver Pendant

This piece is a hollow form made of plume agate and hand-hammered silver. It is approximately 1 and 1/2 inches long, by half an inch wide by half an inch thick. The cord for the pendant runs through the piece behind the agate. The back is left open so that light can pass through and the natural beauty of the stone is visible.

I had a large piece of raw plume agate. Sometimes it is hard to know what to expect from raw stone – it often looks nothing like what you can get from it – but I was lucky. I cut into the slab and polished it up. The earthy browns and mosses mixed with smoky crystal are fascinating. This is one of the best pieces from that stone.

This piece from the stone was a lot of fun to work with because it looks so dramatic – very much like layers of smoke, or something that has been kicked up in an otherwise calm pool of liquid. Thus the name – plume agate.
