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.

Deer Pendent

This sterling silver pendent is set with a Jasper Cabochon which I set horizontally and a small 3mm black onyx above it.  The deer was drawn on a sheet of silver and cut out by hand with a jeweler's saw, after filing the edges smooth, I then soldered it to the back plate which I cut to almost resemble a shield (now that I look at it finished!). I used a tube bail and stamped a leaf pattern on either side of the onyx. This will hang from a black leather cord with sterling closure. I had a male owner in mind but it can be worn by a woman as well. This piece will be going up to "the View" shop in Old Forge when completed. Unless of course, someone requests it's purchase before!!!
