Carved Silver Cuff – Limited Edition of 25

Carved Silver Cuff – Limited Edition of 25

Signature-style carved silver cuff. This piece is stunning – one inch wide and carved with organic, flowing lines in polished sterling silver – reflects light beautifully.

An instant classic. Bold, natural, gorgeous!

This cuff fits a medium wrist. Hand-carved design.

I’ve created twenty-five bracelets for this edition. Each piece is hand-signed (engraved) and numbered. I am donating number “one” of “twenty-five” to the Heard Museum today.

This weekend (March 2 & 3), I will be participating in the Heard Museum Guild Indian Market and Fair. This is the biggest Indian Market in Arizona – featuring top Native American artists from around the country.

Reticulated Silver with Amethyst Pendant

Reticulated Silver with Amethyst Pendant

Faceted amethyst nests in reticulated silver in this hollow form pendant.

The shape of this piece has an organic feel with the natural terrain of the reticulated silver. The pendant is earthy; we are reminded that silver is a mineral. Amethyst is a gem that is thought to have properties that opens the crown chakra, opens us to our dreams and to ethereal states, while the silver keeps us grounded firmly on the planet.

Hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind. Approximately 1 3/4 inches tall by 1 1/2 inches wide by 1/4 inch deep. Signed on the back.

Copper Top Dip Pendant

Entirely hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind. Signature design. Approximately 3/4 of an inch long, 1/2 an inch wide, and 1/4 inch deep. Signed on the back.

Nimbus – Bronze Pins for the Yuma Art Symposium

Nimbus – Bronze Pins for the Yuma Art Symposium

I made these pins for the Yuma Conference this weekend. Every year they have a pin swap – it’s much more fun than handing out business cards! And it has been a nice break from preparing for the Heard Museum show next weekend (March 2nd).

The smaller “cup” has a pin that slides through the larger “bowl”, and fastens in the back. The bowl is about an inch tall and 3/4 of an inch wide. I am pleased, and making some in silver as well!

Handmade fine silver and copper mokume tops fine silver in this hollow form pendant. This piece is brushed for a subtle glow, while the domed shape of the pendant accentuates its solid yet “soft” appearance.

The copper in the mokume will shift in color as it matures, and the organic design of the mokume will become more pronounced over time.

Double Delight! Two-sided Pendant – Silver, Copper, and Mokume

Double Delight! Two-sided Pendant – Silver, Copper, and Mokume

Softly brushed silver is the foundation for this unique double-sided hollow form pendant.

In the center of one side is copper and silver mokume. As the piece matures, the copper will respond to the environment, and deepen in color, heightening the intensity of the mokume pattern.

On the other side, a polished copper bowl is the central focal point. As with the mokume, the copper’s color will shift.

3/4 inch diameter, 1/4 inch deep. Hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind. Signed.

Shown below with a five-strand black omega necklace.
