What materials do you use?
My porcelain jewelry, earrings, pins, and necklaces are fired several times to achieve hardness and durability. I formulate my own glazes in a range of colors inspired by nature. The precious metals---gold and white gold---are applied before the last firing to accent and infuse each piece with a lustrous finish. The necklaces are often reversible and are direct impressions of driftwood or stones from Gros Morne National Park, a World Heritage Site in Newfoundland.
I create my reversible marbled birch earrings by shaping birch wood and marbling it on both sides using acrylic paint. Each piece is a unique painting and is light as a feather. They are one-of-a-kind and reversible.
The birch jewelry ear wires are Sterling Silver. Necklaces have sterling silver or 14k gold-filled chains as components.
How do I care for my jewelry?
All wood jewelry is finished with a protective clear sealer; however they are not waterproof, and repeated or prolonged exposure to water will damage the finish. Jewelry and accessories should be removed before showering or swimming. Store them in a dry place. I recommend packing earrings and necklaces in a separate box from other jewelry when traveling to avoid scratching or damage. I also suggest keeping your silver jewelry in a small sealed plastic bag to avoid tarnishing.
