What materials do you use?

I use mostly sterling silver (marked 925) as this complements sea glass beautifully. My designs are contemporary, modernist, and whimiscal. When designing a piece of sea glass jewelry, I try to tell the story of the sea glass after researching its color, markings, and size. Each piece of jewelry is custom designed to bring out the beauty of the sea glass.

Earrings are carefully matched to create a complementary pair. Any findings, beads, charms, or wire work is chosen to accentuate the inherent beauty of the glass and remains a minimal accent. Wire work is performed with care, to minimize markings, and filed to a smooth finish.

All the metal used is nickel-free as nickel can cause irritation for people with sensitive skin.

I have a limited collection using gold-filled components.
