The Process

The Process

Gathering the materials… I source most of my metals from either the scrap yard or from friends who have leftovers from construction projects.  Over 75% of my materials are recycled and repurposed and have taken on a new enlivened beauty…

The metals are then sanded down, cleaned and given a fresh start…

I use a torch to create all sorts of wonderful organic shades and colors…

Because each piece is made by hand and created using natural elements each one is unique unto itself… with every piece, I am fascinated by the possibilities discovered…

Copper is a healing metal

Copper has long been used as a healing metal, especially for arthritis and rheumatism. It has been used to correct blood and metabolism disorders and also acts as a conductor of energy when worn on the body. Copper produces an enhanced healing effect when worn with other stones carrying healing properties.
