Jewelry - Silversmith

I fabricate one of a kind sterling silver art jewelry.

Treasures began at a time in my life when I needed a distraction, something to fill my mind. My husband was diagnosed with cancer and we were in a serious battle to regain his health. Several trips to the hospital for surgeries and many weeks of chemo, very serious complications and many hours just sitting and waiting and I needed to prepare for the upcoming holidays. I have an art background and the love to create. I had made jewelry years ago, when my children were small and I had enjoyed it. I thought I'd try that again, thinking I could make Christmas gifts. I fell in love and took precious metal smithing classes... now I'm totally obsessed. I gave every female in the family lots of jewelry for Christmas and made pieces for myself as well. Friends and coworkers started asking if I could make pieces for them, and a business was born. I can't wait to turn on my torch and my mind is always visualizing the next piece to create. I hope you find a Treasure you can wear and enjoy. Making jewelry is now my celebration of my husband's good health.
