Recent custom work




Here are a couple of recent custom pieces that I remembered to photograph before sending out. I start with a photo, and turn it in to a black and white drawing, which I then etch on to a brass plate. I use the brass plate to imprint the image in to the silver with. The black cat, Berkley, was quite a challenge since there was not much detail to work with. I think the piece turned out pretty good though. Frida the Chihuahua was fun, especially with that tongue sticking out!

These are great - have to love that chihuahua! You did so good with the black cat - basically a black blob with eyes in the photo, but well defined on the pendant. I am really itching to try the copper etching!

Hi There,
A lady was in my store the other day and was wearing a necklace from you. It is not in your store currently. It was what she called my sweet little chickadee and was just the bird, not on a square. How can I get one of these? I love it!

I can't help but love the black kitty so much... he reminds me so much of my kitty, Stewie. Beautiful etching!
