How it's made

How it's made: 

All jewelry is handcrafted in my home studio in Los Angeles. I fabricate each item by cutting designs out of metals with a handsaw, forging with hammers and soldering all components together with a flame torch. I use a variety of buffing and texturing wheels to create finishes on the surface of metal. All gemstones are meticulously set using handmade burnishers and other tools.

Occasionally, some designs are carved by hand in wax and casted into metal by a local jewelry casting shop. For casted designs, all finishing and stone setting work is done back at the home studio.
