Hand-Woven and Textural Jewelry I hand- construct a silver framework by soldering wire into a silver base, thus creating a loom on which to weave. Flat weave pieces are woven with thin strips of silver, secured to silver sheet, and then I can cut, form and create. Radiant textures are achieved by grinding silver into dust and torch fusing in layers. I can then fuse 22k gold to the dust texture or add a blackening patina . All work is handmade by me in my studio.
