Fine Artisan Jewelry
If you’ve seen my logo at the top of the page, you may be asking yourself, “What is fine artisan jewelry?”
It means that every piece of jewelry on this web site is designed by me personally, and fabricated in my home studio, using the finest quality materials, including gold, silver, vitreous enamel, and natural gemstones.
With my super nerdy background, I create math-inspired jewelry for geeks and the people who love them.
If you’d like to learn more about the processes involved in bringing my jewelry designs to life, check out my Instagram feed, where I frequently post photos and videos of my work in progress.
There’s nothing that compares to the fusion of glass to metal. When you hold up an enameled piece, feel its heft, and see the light shine through the brilliantly deep red transparent glass and reflect off a polished silver surface, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.
Enamel comes into my studio in a powder form. I have an assortment of opaque and transparent enamels huge array of colors. I fuse the glass powder to various metals using either a torch or a kiln at temperatures much hotter than your kitchen oven.
Glass and metal have different physical properties, so getting them to cooperate is absolutely a science. There are so many different techniques that can be used with enamels that I’ll never stop learning. It’s so exciting! I hope you’ll feel some of my excitement in my pieces.
