March Collection 2023

March Collection 2023

- New for March -

The new pieces for March feature pale blues and aquas. I included plenty of March’s birthstone, aquamarine, in the the collection. There are several one-of-a-kind pieces as well as a few made-to-order and limited edition aquamarine designs. Some of the other stones included in this month’s collection are turquoise, larimar, Peruvian opal, variscite, chrysocolla, and chalcedony as well as a multi-hued labradorite.

Geometric shapes like circles and rectangles are prominent in many of the new pieces with a few teardrop shapes rounding out the mix.

If you would like to learn more about how these pieces were made, keep reading below.

One-of-a-kind, limited edition, and made-to-order pieces will be available in the shop starting March 1st.

Behind the Scenes

Here are a few photos which show some of the latest pieces while they were in progress.

In these photos I am working on a handmade chain for the new labradorite necklace. First I solder the smaller links individually. After cleaning and texturing these soldered links, I loop larger links in between the smaller links. I solder the large links, elongate them, and work harden them with a hammer.

Here I am texturing a piece of sterling silver sheet metal with my hammer. As you can see in the photo, this causes the sheet to curve and raise up slightly. I will then use a rubber mallet to hammer it flat again.

I am soldering the smaller circles to the rectangles in this photo. I needed to prop the circles up so that they remained level. I use a strip of titanium to do this. Titanium has a much higher melting point than silver, so I don’t have to worry about accidentally soldering the two different metals together.

Here I am getting the parts of a new turquoise ring ready to be combined together. I just finished texturing the backplate around the bezel. The next step will be to solder the band to the back of this backplate.
