Description

“As a true partnership, we collaborate in the design and creation of our jewelry. We each bring our own unique and different skills and perspectives to our work. Our best, and most popular pieces are the ones that we create together.

In our “Ridgelines” series, the artistic and technical challenges of creating three-dimensional, yet light weight, sculptural jewelry has led us to develop a fine jewelry series that echoes and explores the mountains surrounding our home in Asheville, North Carolina.

We hand-construct the mountain pieces to create the master. A mold is made of the master. Waxes are shot into the mold and then and sprued into a tree. The tree is invested, burned out in a kiln, then vacuum cast with hand poured molten sterling silver. Each piece is ground, tumbled and oxidized, and then finished by hand. Because of the nature of our work no two will pieces will ever be exactly the same.”
