I LOVE handcrafted metal jewelry... Metal by itself or mixed with stones, pearls or crystals. My favorite metal to work with is pewter. Hammered, stamped, shaped, it is always beautiful! I enjoy experimenting and learning new techniques. I also work in bronze, copper and sterling silver, but you'll see pewter the most! Another favorite technique is to set crystals, stones and pearls into soldered settings. It gives a simple organic feel to the beauty of what it holds.
