This is the encore to Love Crosses the Ocean, an engagement ring I made last year. Love reaches the shore with these two 18k white gold wedding rings – one with tiny diamonds for her, a solid gold one for him.
This open titanium ring was murder to make, but it’s finally done. I made it for Charley, who is a paramedic and avid skydiver in Switzerland. I forged the open band out of the titanium bar that once held his leg together after an unfortunate landing. A recycled blue sapphire is set in 14k white gold and fastened with a 14k yellow gold rivet. All recycled materials.
14k gold earrings for Linda, made with her grandmother’s, her mother’s, and her own stones.
Artist Michael Douglas, of Face Mug fame, recently asked me to set his grandmother’s sapphire into his own solid silver brick wall ring. Voila!
On my bench. The beginning of a pronged gemstone setting.

Not yet earrings.
This necklace had to wait a long time to be completed. I made most of it this summer, and just put the finishing touches on today. It is made of recycled sterling silver and rutilated quartz, and will be available in the gallery on November 22.
Expertly fabricated by the four-year-old while I worked on my own (here). Think I’m gonna have to steal some of his ideas.
