Copper jewelry

I began my journey into copper art several years ago when I was laid off at my corporate job. After several months of inactivity I knew I had to do something and I preferred to nourish the long-dormant creative side of my nature rather than go back into the corporate world of business. Thus began my life as a metalsmith jewelry creator.

I started small, doing mainly wire wrapping, but over the years have expanded my knowledge, my skills and my tools so that now I own five torches, many many hammers and multiple pliers all to create that perfect piece of jewelry art. I have recently begun exploring the world of copper sculpture and hope to be able to delve deeper into that aspect of metalworking in the near future.
