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.

Dangling Married Metals and Turquoise Earrings

These earrings are made of hand-hammered copper and silver and set with turquoise. They are approximately three inches long and about half an inch wide. The texture on the surface creates the effect of small waves catching light.

The ripples in the metal vary with each earring due to the hand-hammered process.

Hand-carved Blackened Bronze Cuff

Hand-carved Blackened Bronze Cuff

This bracelet is curved on the inside for comfort. Brushed bronze is subdued yet looks warm against the skin. I have blackened the carvings to set the color of the bronze even more. This cuff looks great on both men and women.

Azurite Malachite Dangling Earrings

Azurite Malachite Dangling Earrings

It is rare to find stones like these, so I was so excited when I came across them. This particular set of stones comes from southern Arizona which is also a plus. (I like to buy locally when I can – and the southwest has great gems and minerals to chose from).

Azurite is a deep blue copper mineral, and so it is found in areas where there are copper deposits. Because azurite and malachite have a similar chemical composition, they can be found together, making a striking color combination of deep blue and bright green. (Wikipedia)

These earrings are hand-cut and hand-hammered. It is increasingly difficult to find stones like these, so I don’t know when I will be making my next pair.
