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

The Road Less Traveled

Robert Frost said that taking the road less traveled makes all the difference. I would have to disagree this time. The road to my house has been under construction since May of 2009 and I have had to take a very inconvenient detour. The road less traveled sucks. It's bumpy. It's way out of my way. And it's far easier to go in the ditch because of the hairpin turns. I'd say taking the road less traveled just ticks me off. . .
