Welcome to my website! If you have visited before, you know that available jewelry is listed by category on the right side of the page while "archival" work is on the left side. I like to show items that have been sold so you can see the range of my creations. Since I make everything by hand (not cast), my production is limited. Pieces that are all silver or silver & gold can usually be replicated, but pieces with stones are "one-of-a-kind". Prices may be different from what is listed, especially if the posting is from several years ago, due to changing metals markets. I will give a current price upon request.
I am making most of my jewelry now with an alloy called "Argentium Sterling Silver". It was developed about 20 years ago and replaces the copper in the alloy with another metal called Germanium. Germanium is naturally resistant to oxidation and helps the jewelry stay shinier than the copper/silver sterling. To be stamped "Sterling", jewelry must be at least 92.5% silver. Argentium has one percent more silver in the alloy, being 93.5% silver & 6.5% germanium.
In addition to selling my work on the web, I continue to sell at various shows and festivals during the year. I will post details as the events arrive.
I hope to hear from you or see you soon. Enjoy your browse of my work and feel free to contact me at 919-876-0609 or better yet, send me an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks! - Dan
