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.

Amethyst Polished Slices

 These two Druzy slices were so beautiful that I couldn't resist buying them. Once I got them I couldn't wait to set them. The stones have their crystals rising from the bottom part which, to me, looks like a land or water scape. Solving the bezel problem was a challenge but I believe I did a descent job of it. The trees and hills, I cut from heavier gauge sterling to give them some stability. Once again I found myself wanting to make my own chains for them. So I did! I just couldn't put a commercial chain on these pieces.
