BronzClay™ two separate firings, inner dome was fired in coconut based activated carbon and the outer ring was fired in coal based. These were two mistakes that ended up as one piece. This is going to be fun.



BronzClay™ earrings fired in coal based activated carbon. The patina is right out of the kiln. The raised areas were burnished




Ring shank was changed to an adjustable one as my dearest friend Magy Caldwell was nearing the end of her life. She was shrinking so quickly the ring would always be too large for her. Unfortunately, Magy passed away the day before the ring was finished. Because of the bypass shank, I can now wear it in her memory. We shared pearl as our birthstone.  Not for sale.




Love and miss you Magy...


Stainless martini glass, the wrap and pick are BronzClay™. Those exciting colors are one of the magnificent properties of the coal firing medium. Fabulous arent they?

Origami isn't as easy as it looks. I used metal clay sheet to fold six-point lilies. The bud bases are also silver. The buds themselves are wonderful keshi pearls. I have so many different kinds I've been thinking of a bridal line. The center coin pearl here is a huge 22mm in diameter. Just amazing! This piece is included in
