Metalsmithed pieces of jewelry are created by manipulating various metals. This process includes fabricating by forming and shaping it with hammers, mandrels, and other tools, sawing with a jeweler's saw or cutting with metal snips, doming with a metal dapping set, forging, fold forming, drilling holes for design elements or for use with cold connections such as rivets and screws, soldering, texturing metal with hammers and other metalsmithing tools, metal stamping, and creating settings to include stones by adding bezels. Once the manipulation of the piece is done, finishing techniques, such as filing, buffing, polishing are performed to give the piece its glow. Feel free to contact me if you have a particular piece or stone you're interested in having created. I have many gemstone cabochons to choose from!
