I offer a complete special order design house, but no CAD, all handcarved;I do all the design and jewelry work myself. Nearly every one of my pieces of jewelry is handcarved in wax before casting it into precious metal with the lost wax casting process. I am a sculptor in miniature works of art. The process I use is very similar to the casting of large bronze sculpture. I hope to have a page illustrating and explaining this process up sometime this year
All art tells a story in some way. That is what I attempt to do with my jewelry and talismans; tell a story that an individual can recognize and identify with. A story and a coming together of sometimes ancient symbols which still have meaning today. I do this with the metals, stones and designs I use, and my years of study of the properties of each.
My online store offers highest quality handmade jewelry. Specializing wearable miniature sculptural jewelry . I produce each piece from design to finished product myself, with exceptional attention to detail. I am a master at my craft and have invented several metal processes and jewelry findings, both simple and complex, which are now being used all through the jewelry industry. It takes years and years and patience, discipline and expensive equipment to achieve mastery of this very technical art/craft.
My emphasis is on the spiritual, shamanistic powers of metal and gems. As far as I'm concerned, a piece of jewelry does not need to be a holder for a stone. I build/carve my designs using silver for stability and gold for strength. Most of my hand made jewelry uses both these metals for that reason. Therefore, if a gem is needed or desirable, it functions as a LENSE to channel energy either out from the wearer or into the wearer. Where the jewelry is worn on the body is very important to accomplish the desired result. My designs include animal, amulet, environmental, spiritual, wiccan and mythological themes in the sculpture of this fine jewelry.
Many of my works include stones such as Opals of all grades, Triple A Lapis Lazuli which is getting extremely scarce, Natural Turquoise which is nearly priceless now, the incredible, mysterious yin/yang of Finnish Spectrolite and various other beautiful and now rare gemstones. I cut most of the stones myself from old stock in inventory for years. And have added gem stone galleries displaying some of my hand cut designer cabochons for sale . Click on the photo above to view these galleries. You are welcome to request a particular gemstone.
Some of the pieces are supplied with chains or cords and some may be ordered separately, if desired. I do this because you may desire a different chain than I would hang the piece on and also because gold and silver chain prices vary widely and wildly. Please read the item description and, if you have questions, email me. I have a wide variety and colors of leather cords that work with my hook and eye closures.
I work with you to design and create custom one-of-a-kind jewelry including commitment/wedding jewelry. I design and create all these orders personally. Please understand that Custom Jewelry is quite a bit more expensive than any you'll find "ready-made" in any jewelry store or on HSN.
Please see my CUSTOM JEWELRY DESIGN page. This page explains how I go about creating the design the you want, providing customer input on the work done every step of the way. See:How to Order a Custom Jewelry Design
