Tulip brooch - sterling silver

I am going to be out of the studio from mid-June to late July. With my current workload (extremely high! Yikes!), I’m running about 5-6 weeks to deliver on orders. I think that a deadline order date of May 9th will ensure a mid-June delivery without too much insanity on my part. And of course, I’ll be back up and running by the end of July and taking orders as per usual.

Hope everyone is having a great spring so far! My plants are all coming up and it’s so bleeding exciting. My tulips multiplied underground and are awesome this year.

hand-carved thorny eternity band - 14K + diamonds

New eternity band!! This one has an abstract thorny motif with six little 1.5mm diamonds all the way around. I think it has something of a midcentury thing going. I didn’t plan it that way, rather just sort of started carving away and the design took shape as I went. I think this would be an excellent accompaniment to my rose motif solitaires and bands..

18K hand-carved squid ring

Joshua and I have been together for over 20 years. Twelve years ago or so I made him a ring from silver, but it has worn so much that it is easily half the thickness it once was. He has mentioned once or twice (or possibly, ahem, more) that I should carve a squid ring.

hand-carved rings in gold + diamonds

Just a pretty picture of a bunch of colorful gold rings + diamonds. 18K yellow gold, 14K rose gold, 14K palladium white gold and diamonds. The large rectangular stone is a translucent rose-cut diamond set in a modified version of my poppy band.

14K white gold rosy eternity band + hammered band

Sometimes people I’ve made rings for send me photos from their wedding. I love seeing these!

18K wide rose bramble band

This is a new wider version of my rose bramble band. It’s 12mm wide and 18K yellow gold. A fantastic weighty chunk of rose clusters, leaflets and thorny vines. I’m pretty damned happy with how this one turned out.
