Brass and Copper “Serenity” Jewelry

3rd September 2013 | Closed

Acid-etched, hammered and polished brass features the Chinese symbols for “serenity.” Each is unique due to the creation process, or variations in form, size, metals, number of rivets, etc. I made acid-etched items for many years, but due to my busy schedule and the lengthy process required, I am not currently making them nor taking commissions […]

Timeless Jewel Necklace

24th May 2012 | Closed

I enjoy taking old, antique and broken parts and making new, beautiful jewelry. This triangular jewel in a brass setting was purchased from an antiques dealer as a piece from broken jewelry. I have no idea how old it is or where it came from. I cemented the jewel to some new filigree and added […]

SOLD Clockpunk “Gear Maille” Necklace

I’ve seen similar patterns made in chainmaille, but this one is made with gears instead of links. The gears measure 3/4-inch (18mm) across and are decorative, not actual clockworks.

SOLD Medieval Peccatum Pendant

1st September 2011 | Closed

“Peccatum” is the Latin word for “sin.” This miniature of a medieval painting depicts Adam, Eve, the apple and the serpent. I’ve been collecting ephemera for years and I don’t remember where I got this picture, or who is the artist, but it probably came from an old National Geographic magazine or an old art history textbook. […]

This piece features a “portal” of red clay and metallic glaze, with real watch gears from broken watches, set in Ice Resin. The ring of the portal was made by Elaine Ray who makes ceramic jewelry parts, but the pendant itself was designed and assembled by myself in my private studio. Pendant measures 1-1/8 inches […]
