Recent Progress

Not all of my work makes it to my Etsy store, like special orders and experiments. I share the most recent images of my work and explorations on Instagram. More can always be seen on the full Instagram feed.

 #wip Sleepy soldering is a bad combination for me so I'll finish soldering the chain tomorrow. I can hardly wait to set this poppy jasper.  The lariat is all finished and set so I took it on a test drive today to see how the chain length and link size would wear. There are a few adjustments to make for the next one which will be set with poppy jasper. #crazylaceagate #silver #sterlingsilver #sterling #silversmith #instasmithy #metalwork #jewelrydesign #metalsmithing #metalstudio #fairbanks #alaska #handmade  2 Tbsp copper coffee scoop just out of the tumbler this morning. Death before decaf!  A copper spoon to accent your favorite spice jar, your bar collection, or your next toast with jam. The total length of this spoon is 5.25 inches. The bowl measures 1 teaspoon.  Copper spoons!  January is gone but it still feels wintery. Rustic sterling silver rings with garnet. #silver #sterlingsilver #sterling #silversmith #instasmithy #metalwork #jewelrydesign #metalsmithing #metalstudio #fairbanks #alaska #handmade #garnet  Tonight was filled with making different copper forms to get a sense for how fast I can execute each one. I really like the rolled sheet best even though it doesn't look very flashy. #copper #metal #hammered #coppersmithing #metalsmithing #instasmithy #metalstudio #copperwork #forgedmetal #copperware #jewelrydesign #fairbanks #alaska #handmade
 Experiments with graphite on enamel today. #wip  #wip Just pulled this lariat out of the pickle. Super-excited to get it cleaned up, polished and set with this crazylace cab. #silver #sterlingsilver #sterling #silversmith #instasmithy #metalwork #jewelrydesign #metalsmithing #metalstudio #fairbanks #alaska #handmade  Fire does beautiful things to copper and sometimes I'm around to see it. Finishing up some spoons from the weekend.  Simple sterling silver earrings with a twist.  Starting some copper measuring spoons this morning, and enjoying the rays of sun peeking through the window.  This tiny copper spoon has a rustic handle resembling a small tree branch. Perfect for spices and salts. The bowl measures one pinch.  Picked up a bottle of the debut batch from @hoarfrostdistillingak tonight. Into the freezer it goes! #hoarfrostak #vodka #distillery #fairbanks #alaska
 #wip Working with a Botswana agate tonight. The bands are almost hypnotic. #botswanaagate #silver #sterlingsilver #sterling #silversmith #instasmithy #metalwork #jewelrydesign #metalsmithing #metalstudio #fairbanks #alaska #handmade  I was so excited to see my custom one-eyed owl stamp from @buckeyeengraving in the mail today. I'm very happy with how it turned out, and it makes a very clean mark! #stampallthethings  A hand-formed copper tablespoon Giving coffee as a gift? Add this as a handmade touch to your gift package.
