Sterling, Fine Silver, or Argentium - Who is Who?

Sterling, Fine Silver, or Argentium - Who is Who?

I get a lot of questions and confusion about silver metals, so I thought I'd do a quick post about the difference between Sterling Silver, Fine Silver, and Argentium. Sterling silver is always.925. What that means is it is 92.5% fine (or pure) silver with the rest made up of copper. This is a standard for sterling silver and there is no other more pure form of sterling silver. There is also .999 pure or fine silver, which is generally pretty soft for jewelry making, which is why copper is added to it to make sterling. Then there is Argentium silver, which...

Some things from today

Some things from today

My messy soldering block . It contains lots of in progress stuff, scraps etc and holds the magic of handmade. AND I’m working on making one of these awesome Tribal Goddess nose studs for a customer.  The Tribal Goddess stud is another one of my fave's. It starts with a single piece of sterling wire that I manipulate into my original design; twisting and turning to create the shape. I have one of my own in gold too, and keep meaning to get one listed for sale in yellow and rose gold. If you're keen for gold, just talk to...

Nose Rings - What's Hot?

Nose Rings - What's Hot?

So the hottest style I'm making these days is the budded open style of nose ring. It begins as a single piece of wire, and with some coaxing from my torch, a little bud begins to form. I stop it at just the right moment and wait for it to cool. Really important part lol - the cooling before forming the ring. I make these lovelies in 14 karat yellow gold, 14 karat rose gold, 14 karat white gold, and Argentium sterling silver.

One of the Coolest Things I've Ever Made

Sometimes a customer will ask for a specific thing and it becomes one of the coolest things I've ever made. That was definitely the case with this piece. I had a customer ask me if I could make a hoop that had a little loop on it so a stud could go through it. I'd never seen something like that or even heard of it before, but it sounded really neat and I thought I'd "give it a go". On my first try, I made a little circle out of thinner wire and soldered a straight wire to it. The tiny...

Rose Gold

Rose Gold

It's official. Rose gold is IN. Somewhere around the time Apple released a new batch of iPhones in the desirable color, we as a society began to fall in love with rose gold all over again - and why not? It's classic and timeless and presents an air of elegance that yellow gold doesn't always capture. The pink hues are simultaneously feminine, cutesy, passionate, and also demure and elegant. Rose gold is a jewelery option that looks great with nearly any style and color choice of clothing. It flatters every skin tone. Just take a look at Pinterest, do a...
