I love making art jewelry and my website displays a lot of different approaches from beads to wire. This elegant necklace reflects the years I spent involved in Middle East Dance as a creator and vendor of costumes and jewelry.
I love collars and similar designs and a number of my necklaces are variations on that theme, like this one with ruby Swarovski crystals and a lab ruby set in sterling silver.
As an example of what else I'm working on, here's a photo of a pendant in sterling silver set with two larimar cabochons.

To increase strength and stability for my woven fine silver pendants and earrings, I’m creating soldered frames for my metal weaving. This construction approach will allow me to design more detailed art jewelry pieces that combine bezel set stones with woven silver elements. All these pieces are handmade from cutting out the various metal shapes through the assembly of all the pieces of the design.
Contact me directly for more details and an appointment to see my work.

I want to blend soldered elements with my woven fiber and woven metal designs. In the last two months, I've been working on polishing and updating some long unused skills. So far, I have a bracelet with matching earrings and two pendants done. I hope to take photos of these pieces this coming weekend.
