All parts of my sterling pendants are handmade. I create the designs used in my necklaces, earrings and bracelets.
SILVERSMITHING: Stones all set in 'sterling silver' with a solid SS back. All pieces stamped with my initials as well as SS to ensure they are original. KNOT TYING: most necklaces are tied with knots (silk thread) depending on size and weight.
Skills and Techniques
I was very fortunate to learn my silversmithing technique from a 'master silversmither' years ago. He taught me the right way to do things, not the quick way. That translated into being meticulous with my pieces. Each is unique, bringing the best out of the sterling silver and the stones. I'm especially proud of my knot tying. This skill has evolved through time, practice and a lot of patience. Typically pearls are knotted, but when applied to various size stones, the look is exceptional.
