We currently live in the Ozark mountains of northwest Arkansas where we create our jewelry . We consider ourselves artists first and jewelers second and feel that what we create is truly a “wearable work of art”.
Our design technique uses the ancient Japanese technique called nerikomi . We begin by making our own porcelain and adding commercial stains to create our colors. These colors are then combined, shaped, sliced and layered to form a log seen on the right. Each piece of jewelry is sliced from the log and then shaped and kiln fired to 2200 degrees F. A gold edging is applied and each piece is fired a final time to 1300 degrees F.
