playing favorites

These are some of the only pieces I have actually planned out in advance and have had to figure out how to make the dream a reality. I heated the metal, hammered it and then drilled holes for the fine silver accents to go into - there are tiny little balls on each side of the metal. The texture is incredible, it's like reading braille on metal. These are definitely my new favorites!

I am very excited to announce that my jewelry is now being carried by Twill in Portland! This super cute shop carries everything from skirts, dresses, original art, jewelry and even colored tights. The shop mostly carries local designers and eco-friendly clothes, which I think is just one more reason to love them! Make sure to check them - you won't be sorry!

circle of life

I have totally been on a kick of making everything circles! I love forming the wire, cutting it, fusing it and then re-shaping it to make a perfect little circle. The possibilities are endless and I think this is probably the part of jewelry making I could never get tired of!
