I make jewelry from wire, shaped freeform or woven in complex patterns, combined with brilliantly hand-colored brass which I create using permanent inks followed by repeated layers of gloss varnish to give the look of enamels. I use materials that spark the imagination—antique keys, carved faces, watch gears and pen nibs, colored wings and leaves—to create pendants, earrings, hair pins and clips. I add new techniques every year, most recently hand-stamping words on metal, as well as new color combinations and materials.
I live in Massachusetts and sell my work online through my Etsy shop, Silver Owl Creations, and at a handful of conventions and craft shows. When I am not making jewelry, I work as a software engineer, and enjoy role playing games, singing, and a great deal of reading.
