Are all of your designs made by hand?

Yes! I started designing my beloved line of jewelry almost three years ago at my mom's kitchen table. I create all of my designs by hand using small-scale metalsmithing techniques in my mill studio in Amesbury, Massachusetts.  Every piece is hand cut, shaped, forged, polished and assembled to ensure a high quality design. My jewelry can be found at numerous boutiques, galleries and artisan markets throughout New England. 

What materials do you use to make your jewelry?

I create my designs by using sterling silver, 14 kt gold fill and brass combined with natural gemstones, leather and quills. Gold-filled is made by heat- and pressure- bonding a thin layer of 14 karat gold to a brass (or other base metal) core which makes for a more permanent bond than gold plated.  I carefully select my materials so that each piece is beautiful and comfortable, durable and graceful.

How do I care for my jewelry?

Sterling silver and brass jewelry may acquire a dark, antique-y patina with repeated wear. While I love the way this looks, you may want to keep them looking shiny and new. Jewelry polishing cloths work well and I sell them at markets and in my studio or you can use a commercial brass cleaner, like “JAX”, which is available at many jewelry stores and online.

Where can I find your work?

You can find my jewelry in a number of boutiques listed here.  I also sell my work at markets all over New England.  A complete listing of the markets and events that I participate in can be found here.  My studio in Amesbury, MA is open to the public.  Please contact me ahead of time to arrange a time to come by.
