Married Metals Tie Clip

Married Metals Tie Clip

This piece is made of hand-hammered brushed copper and brushed silver. The metals pick up light with a soft glow. The design on this piece reminds me of the southwestern mountain landscape where I grew up.

The clip is 1 1/2 inches long by 1/4 inch wide. Signed on the back.

Married Metals Cufflinks

These cufflinks are a shadowbox hollow form made of fine silver and copper. Brushed silver has a subtle sheen that picks up the warmth of the copper. Hand-hammereing allows for evidence of the process in making these.

Traditionally, shadowbox jewelry is made with stones like turquoise. Here, I’ve used hammered married metals as the the centerpiece to the shadowbox rather than stones.

Hand-fabricated (made by hand). Due to the nature of the process, no two pieces are alike.

Dusk and Dawn – Married Metals Dangling Earrings

This pair is completely handmade – the copper and silver were cut out with a jeweler’s saw and hand-hammered. The fluctuations in the metal catch light so that there are gentle glimmers of light with the movement of the earrings.

Married Metals Cuff

This bracelet harkens back to my childhood growing up in the Sedona area. I find the red rocks and the mountains sneaking into my work often.

This piece is entirely hand-fabricated of silver and copper. It was then blackened to intensify the raised design on the cuff.

Married Metals Dangling Earrings

I love working with organic shapes. Curves make me happy. The colors in these earrings mirror the southwest beautifully.

These copper and silver earrings are two and three-quarter inches long and half an inch wide. Hand-hammered and one-of-a-kind. Comfortable to wear, very light.

The variations on the surface of the metal are due to the creation process; they create a ripple effect with light further enhancing the fluid line of the design.
