Welcome to the world as seen through my eyes. As an artist I have explored and created in many different medias during my journey.
Physical adornment begins with the very beginning of humanity.
Fine Jewelry is the most personal of all art and it is the one art form that you become physically and emotionally involved with as it can express the purest form of ones portrayed illusion. Jewelry represents the union between the fragile flesh of the body and the passion to show who we are through the art of adornment and it can dictate stature and achievement. Jewelry can reflect your emotions or change them; it can be the symbolic bond between you and another and hold memories for generations.
We are all such different people, it is very exciting for me to create with the light from diamonds, colored stones and precious metals a fine piece of jewelry intricately compatible with the wearer and their emotions.

Taking care of your jewelry:
This sterling silver is still 925% pure silver except it is alloyed with palladium as a substitute for copper and other alloys (depending on the refinery) making it somewhat more tarnish resistant than conventional sterling silver but can still be easily oxidized.
Daily wear is the best finish, but a simple polishing cloth will keep a brighter finish. Never use silver cleaner because it will remove the oxidation. Click on this link to purchase a polishing cloth.
