Sterling silver and copper - reclaimed
Golden Hills turquoise
The love of trout is strong with these. Inspired by the rise of spring. Oh how I love to see a fish rise to the service of the water to feed - even if it isn't from the end of my line. A special pair of earrings for the trout spirit.
Made with love - one of a kind, twisted, bent, set, sawn, etched, fired by my own two hands.
Note to buyer: The reclaiming process is a bit of a long one. Most of the sterling silver I buy is from well used jewelry that isn't being worn anymore or has been broken. I also buy used sterling silverware. I melt it all down and roll it into sheet and wire. This means that I don't have to buy freshly mined silver that is much easier to work with. Reclaimed pieces cost more because of this extra process. In the end, reclaiming metal for my wares is gratifying and worth it to me. I hope you feel the same. With love.
