A trade as old as time, silversmithing is a complex but beautiful process. Rather than “sculpting” with metal as I do with the Tiffany method, silversmithing involves using sheets and wires of silver to create layers and structures. Each and every piece is meticulously planned, laid out, and formed. It’s an extremely time consuming process involving stages of heating and cooling, hammering, shaping, sawing, filing, sanding and polishing; and while one piece can take upwards of 10 hours, it’s such a breathtaking form of alchemy.
Sterling silver is a ✨precious metal✨ and will last for generations. It’s also one of the most hypoallergenic metals available.
