Assembly is always my least and most preferred process in jewelry making. All the pieced have been prepared, the design is mapped out and now the only thing standing in the way is the speed of my fingers to put it all together and bring it to life.

Here we go! Work in progress…feeling a 70’s vibe coming on…it was only fitting to use vintage glass and dyed bone to go with hand drilled turquoise.

Sometimes an old piece needs a makeover. This necklace was made using only oxidized silver and amazing Iranian turquoise. The large focal turquoise is actually a cabochon. I was able to build a cage using only jump rings (an arduous but rewarding feat). Thought I’d capture it before it gets taken apart for a new look.

As a designer, there are few things that are as exciting as coming up with an idea and discovering that the final product matches the original sketch.
These are the first official pieces of 2013 and I’m happy to see the year is starting off well.
Using recycled resin spikes(never underestimate the value of sample sales for supplies), faceted turquoise teardrops, red jasper, coral, bali silver and oodles of silver chain, these two necklaces work wonderfully alone or together.
