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.

Sterling and Blue China ring Size 4.5

This ring is sterling even though the photo looks rather gold, it is not gold. The shard of course came from a piece of China that I ground into this shape.  I decided to make the shank small to fit a small hand since most of my creations seem to be sizes 6,7, and 8! However if you are a size 5, I can stretch this ring to fit you.

Carnelian Sterling Ring Size 7

Stonware 6.5" Tree Pitcher SOLD

Blue China Shard Triangle Ring Size 7

This clean and geometric design with a plain but substantial shank was created from a broken
piece of china.  I ground it to this triangular shape and decided I liked it simple so that the unique
shape and material would be what attracts the eye when you are wearing it.

Stoneware Rice Bowl with wooden chop sticks

This rice bowl is one of a pair and soon to be one of a series of rice bowls.  Cathy did her tree thing
in iron and attached the swirl which she said makes her think of "roots" which makes her think of rice as a main stay to many cultures.  In any case I think it works here and would like to know what you think, just press comment below.

Victorian Earrings, sterling and pearl

The background in this photo gives the silver a brassy look however they are actually sterling that I
antiqued with liver of sulfur and buffed to reveal the flower pattern. I soldered a 20 ga. wire and attached two beautiful coral colored pearls along with sterling beads to create a very feminine look.  Hope you like them. FREE SHIPPING UNTIL DECEMBER 25

Aventurine Ring size 8.5

I originally made this ring for myself, however I decided I have enough rings and I've decided to part with it!  Aventurine is a variety of Chalcedony and this particular stone is a beautiful color. To me it resembles the color of a piece of beach glass, that pretty light blue with a touch of green in it. The bezel I chose to use has a glitter to it when the light hits the tops of the pattern. The shank has been rolled to produce a flat edge, which makes it very comfortable to wear.
