3 Turn Vortex Energy Rings goes Steampunk

3 Turn Vortex Energy Rings goes Steampunk

This is my Three  Turn Vortex Energy Ring with a new look. This ring is hand forged from 12 inches of number 10 pure copper wire. I added 9 sterling silver rivets giving this heavy size 11 ring that steampunk look.

This is my first prototype of this style. That is why I put my signature on the outside. I do that to identify the first one made of any new design.

If you wear a size 11, you have a choice. I can make you a new one with my signature on the inside or you can get this first of its kind with the signature on the outside.

The price is $138 and it it’s still available, you can get it here:

engraved-2-cu-200This hand engraved pendant is a typical North West scene. Mountains, trees and birds graved on pure copper.

I can also put a silver moon in it made of sterling silver. This is done by drilling a hole and filling it in with a hand made river and set permanently into place with a hammer.

The process I use to create these engravings is a very old one and the tools I use are much the same as they were in the days before electricity.

tri-metal bangle braceletThree metals are joined with complimentary rivets. The three metals are sterling silver, pure copper and brass. I drilled and joined one type if metal with the second using a rivet of the third type of metal.

A very balanced design that easily fits into the Ayurvedic tradition of jewelry.

The size of this bracelet is about two and a half inches diameter and will fit a small to medium size hand.

Bards of Puget Sound seal-front-250Award for the Bards of Puget Sound

Bards of Caer Pugetia
2009 Competitive Eisteddfod

This award was commissioned by The Bards of Puget Sound
and awarded on October 17th 2009

Construction:

This 3 dimensional award piece took the better part of  30 hours to construct. It is made of various metals including reactive metals. The front and back frame are made of brass. The front frame is a circle with Awen’s Rays design as part of the it.

The background is made of pure titanium colored blue on one side and left in it’s natural state on the back where it is engraved.

The salmon, seaweed and salmon egg cluster is made of pure niobium which is a reactive metal like titanium but with a more workable temperament. The details are made using manual engraving tools.

The colors are created by precise masking and controlled oxidation using the reactive metals coloring machine I created in my lab.

seal-back-250

The brass frame is  notched to accommodate the niobium layer. Then all four layers are assembled together and riveted using rivets made from brass wire. The top two rivets also capture the 5th layer which is a new innovation of mine. The multi-function Bail. See images page.

seal-bail-250

The bail is a brass arc with a centering arm and two sterling silver rings. This bail can be used either with a cord on the brass arc or with a chain on the silver rings.

Astronomy + Astrology = Astronology

Astronomy + Astrology = Astronology

PICTURE THIS: You are in space directly above the north pole of the sun. Our sun. You are far enough out in space to see all the planets revolving around the sun.

Now you look at your watch and you see that it is your birthday. The actual day and time of your birth. Now you take another look at the planets. Remarkably, this looks very much like the pattern on your Astronology Talisman.

Your Birth Talisman is actually a miniature representation of the pattern the planets formed when you where born.

For more information on the Astronology Talisman, visit the Pendant Page.  To order your own Astronology Birth Chart, visit www.Astronology.com

candle-175Candle in Jasper is a most remarkable piece. When I saw the image in this piece of jasper, I knew it was destined to be a beautifully set pendant.

The sterling silver filigree work helps create the sense of the candle with wispy smoke, dripping wax and flame.

This pendant is not available. It was actually sold before it was finished.  Thank you Mary for supporting the arts.

If you have a unique or special stone, you can request to have it set in a pendant or any other form of jewelry you like.

To request a custom made piece, please contact me.
