Silversister Art

Lafayette, LA

I create under the name SilverSister as I work mostly in Sterling Silver and personally prefer silver to gold. I am a big fan of nature and I try to create pieces of jewelry that combine the cold and hard aspect of metal with the beauty of nature.

I stumbled upon Jewelry making by accident and quickly realized that there is no limit in the medium of metal. Finding peace and calm in the fast pace world we live in is essential to the well-being of our body, mind, and spirit. The process of creation of each piece soothes the soul and the end result should to the same.

I like using freeform semi-precious cabochons and working around the stone, rather than having the stone fit into a design. I let the stones and metals guide my creation process.
