antique, vintage & contemporary one of a kind jewelry

Antique English Sports Medal

I have been collecting and selling these historical beauties for over 10 years. Each medal is a piece of art, full of mysterious history, created by master craftsmen silversmiths in the 1700's.

antique and vintage

Nothing thrills me more than to discover any antique treasure, such as this one. My goal in working with antique or vintage jewelry are those pieces that are intact, is to present it in a way that shows their unique untouched qualities. This lovely sapphire gold ring was created at the turn of the century and is rich with color as well as history.

handcrafted metalwork

Working with metals is always a journey of its own. When I start with metals, I have an idea set in my minds eye, but when the actual work begins, I go by the feel of the metal. Is it thick, do I need to file this side or that, should I work it further or not..I believe when working with metals, one must listen with your hands to where the metal is guiding you. My idea may take on a different shape or texture as I work it. I love that about metals. Flexibility and sensitivity to touch is key to coaxing out the beauty of the finish.
