Sterling Silver: I oxidize the silver I use with a black patina, because I like the antique look and the depth of the metal it reveals. I polish it in all the places it would naturally polish with wear. Keep in mind that aging is a natural process that will continue for as long as you own your piece.
Gemstones: I handpick all the gemstones used in my pieces, looking not only for color and clarity in the stone, but also for unique shapes and cuts. Some gemstones are one of a kind find, and I will only be making limited editions of the designs featuring them. Please note that gemstones may vary slightly from the pictures shown, as natural stones fluctuate somewhat in color, tonality, size and shape.
