From the artist
“Handmade Silver Jewelry mirrors nature, wildlife, and adventure. Specifically I create Wolves, Lions, Bears, Honey Badgers, everything with four legs, or fins, or flippers…or well you get the idea.
Firstly, I find sterling silver jewelry expresses a need for adventure in the outdoors and a humorous outlook on nature.
Then, I craft each piece with torch, saw, files, sanding bits, and polishing cloths. I work with my hands, heart, and soul.
Not using any silver toned metals, I use only fine silver (.999), Sterling Silver, and Argentium Silver. Gold color metals vary from gold-fill to actual gold. Finally, gemstones are AA or AAA quality unless otherwise stated.” -Kari Lee
