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.

Etched Chinese Craines w/Lapis Lazuli and Opals-$350

This is such a detailed and wonderful piece. The arched cranes are framed with heavy, braided
wire and are seated on a horizontally set lapis rather than the traditional verticle.There are negative cut out spaces above the cranes to resemble stained glass in an arched window. It actually lends balance to the composition. The tiny opals
give the whole piece symmetry while hanging from a beautifully designed chain, made with hammered links and silver beads. As with all my chains, the closures are hand made as well.
This is a steal at this price!
