We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.

18 guage Sterling Silver Byzantine Bracelet-$100


This bracelet is made using 18ga sterling twisted wire. Its byzantine pattern
has been accentuated by darkening the recessed parts using liver of sulfur and
polishing the high spots by tumbling it in a professional jewelry tumbler.
The hooks are also hand made and have been tested for a secure fit. This same pattern
can be made with plain silver rather than twisted and can be made in 20 or 22 gauge wire. Without the liver of sulfur treatment the sterling remains very shiny and light. The look is more delicate.
