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.

Reversible Jasper Pendent

 What a time I had with this piece. This is what you call a learning
experience piece! So I'm finally finished after working on it for several weeks on and off. I started it at the studio in Florida and dragged it all the way home to finish it. I'm loving the weight of the stone and enjoying how it feels around my neck and suddenly it snaps and drops off. One of the soldered jump rings attached to the bezel snapped off. Removing the stone carefully and gently from its comfortable bezel was no easy task.
  Well, its soldered back together and very secure and is back to being wearable. The chainmaille it hangs from is very simple but
I felt a need to create my own chain since I couldn't find one that
looked and felt like a match for the stone. I think it mimicks the form of the pendent and visually supports the size of the piece much better than a small tight patterned chain.
  Love my trees!!!
