These leaf earrings are cut out from 18 gauge copper. The copper has been finished with a heat patina. The patina leaves beautiful earthy colors. These earrings would make a terrific set with the pendant that we have in our shop! They are then set with surgical steel ear wires.

This is a one of a kind ring for the ultimate outdoorsman. This ring design offers a contemporary and fashionable look while combining two very different materials (deer antler and fine silver).
The deer antler has been cross cut at the base of an antler. It was then sanded and lacquered. Lastly, the antler has been riveted onto a fine silver ring blank using a copper rivet.
I can create any size ring for you, just send me a contact me through my etsy site:

I came up with this grape leaf pendant for all of my wine lovers out there! I like the multi colored look, because I tend to see many different colors after a few glasses of wine..ha!

This new brooch consists of a couple of new techniques that I have not tried before. First of all, I pressure set a garnet under a wooden setting. I also set up the brooch so that you can see the stone from both sides of the brooch. It also creates way for light to pass through the garnet in order to showcase the stone. This brooch measures 1 1/8" wide x 1 7/8" tall. It is also 1/4" thick.
