Each piece is designed around the carving, which I hand carve using fossil ivory. I then soak the carvings in handmade dyes or teas to enhance the carvings details. I design the sterling silver or titanium around the carving. The metal is rolled through a rolling mill to give the metal texture and design. I then add details of 18 kt. gold, copper, enamel, and semi-precious stones. The closures are unique to my own design.
