About Me

My photo

I love hammering gold, silver, copper, brass, and bronze into amazing textured custom rings, custom wedding rings, engagement rings, and other unique artisan jewelry.  I have an extensive selection of men's and women's rings, along with gemstone and pearl jewelry in my SilverSmack shop on Etsy.  Please stop in and take a look.

A Poem I wrote

Beyond Semi-precious

Lapidolite, Dumorterite, Iolite

even the sedimentary syllables shine


nutured by nature

colored by the earth

flecked
mottled
dappled

fossilized blooms

petrified sunsets

envelop me

Karma is Kool

Well, my "alleged" friend who "allegedly" copied my designs at the flea market has been banned from the local gem and mineral show because he has backstabbed a few other people and apparently, they don't like it either. And, to add an extra cherry on top, I have been invited to the gem and mineral show. Ha ha. Hee hee. That's just cool.

Oh yeah, and I went and looked at his designs. First of all, they weren't even right. Second of all, they weren't very good. His wire-wrapping is loose and messy and he doesn't have articulated bails like I do. He's already cutting corners on my stolen designs, so any customers he stole from me will be sorely disappointed in the quality. I'm not even worried anymore. I'm still upset that he did that, but not I'm not worried.

Did you do well at the gem show? You should hope not because if you did better then the people in charge of the show they won't ask you back. Just a little trade secret that I've learned along the way that I thought I'd pass on.

And now you want to criticize my wirewrapping and cast bails!!?? You should be very happy then, instead of still complaining, since all my customers will be coming to you for your well priced, quality made, "original" designs.
