- Cathy and Bruce
- 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.

This delicate cuff bracelet has a nugget of sterling with just the right little pocket to hold the white cultured pearl in. I soldered a post before setting the pearl and oxidized the nugget so that the white of the pearl stands out.
I used a heavy gauge of half round sterling for this cuff and another sterling nugget which I made by pouring hot molten silver over rock salt crystals. This one is a bit heavier but this time I decided to set a half drilled black pearl and give the silver a nice high shine to set it off.
I love antique vintage sterling silverware. This lovely piece has a carnelian set on it and is of a heavy construction. I made it to a size 8.5. If you enjoy wearing a big ring and one that will surely be noticeable than this is the one for you! Providing its your size! SOLD
