Jewelry


My fine silver and dichroic fused glass jewelry designs of crafted pendants, earrings, rings and bracelets result in unique, affordable, wearable art. I create pieces of .99% silver content for my fine silver pieces; this level is above the sterling silver metal classification. My interest in designing and crafting dichroic fused glass jewelry grew from a glass that was developed by and applied by NASA to the Space Program. an additional interest was developed in the process for fused glass - known in ancient Rome and Greece and ultimately lost as an art form in Ancient Times. There are a few complete pieces of this glass craft artwork in museums. The crafting process begins with design conceptualization. The process continues through forming, kiln firing and polishing. My use of both materials creates the perfect marriage of crafted fine silver withthe illuminating depth provided by chroic fused glass.
