Persistence of the Sea
  • Persistence of the Sea


    A bold and beautiful blue chalcedony swings a sterling silver whelk below it. This shell has long been a symbol of persistence among sailors. Though it is small it is fierce. Let it remind you to keep putting one foot in front of the other, for as long as you keep moving forward you can not fail.


    The chalcedony hangs from a 20 inch sterling silver chain and the shell follows just 3 inches below.


    Each piece of my jewlery is handcrafted one at a time from start to finish, meaning no two pieces will be exacly alike. My work celebrates the beauty of imperfection, and little inclusions like a finger print here or there are the mark of the artist. The natural elements I use are made from molds I have made from my finds on the beaches of Cape Cod. A lot of love and intention goes into making each piece and that's what makes them special. My process is meaningful and you'll feel that when you hold my work in your hand, much more than you would with a less expensive, machine manufactured piece.


    GoGreen! : The metal in the clays I use are from recycled materials like scrap jewelry, electronics like cell phones, monitors, and computers, x-rays, photographic film and industrial waste. My suppliers are focused on using environmentally ethical methods to create their products.
