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

Is It Really Flip-Flop Weather?



Sure, everyone wants spring to come, but lets take a little time to look at the facts. THERE'S STILL A TON OF SNOW OUT THERE! This is what I see when I look out my window. Not flip-flop weather in my book. Sure, we've had a few days of warmer temperatures, but in addition to a ton of snow, there's even more MUD!



Now, I've spotted some flip-flops already this week. Maybe in warmer climates, that's fine, but in BIG SNOW COUNTRY, I think it's best to wait a bit. . .
