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.

10mm sterling post earrings/opals/aquamarine

Aquamarine 5mm stones are the focal point of this small (10x10mm) pair of posts.  The silver has been textured with a riveting hammer and oxidized to look dark in contrast to the beautiful color of the stones. Posts and backings are of sterling as well

Opal 5mm cabs are the focal point of this 10x10mm pair of posts.  Again, I textured the silver behind the opals and oxidized them so the darkness of the silver would contrast with the fire in the opals.  All components are sterling silver.
