It's like Alchemy

Are you curious about my jewelry making process? This is part of the story. The alchemy part: when I have a whole new batch of castings on my bench. These are the raw pieces cast from my original designs that I create with traditional metal working techniques, or with a special material called PMC (Precious Metal Clay).  

The transformation process always fascinates me. The casts go from a fuzzy looking, bumpy, awkward state to softly glowing shapes of sterling silver or bronze. Preparing the casts requires sawing, grinding, polishing through a series of grits to gradually smooth the metal to the finish that I require to make beautiful designs for you. 

Take a look!
