Kristy Highness

Every item starts as a sheet of sterling silver, or as wires of various gauges. Each shape is hand sawed. Words and textures are lined up with a fine eye and a sturdy blow from a hammer. Layers are soldered together with flame. Rings are bent over a mandrel and shaped with rawhide. Traditional silversmithing methods are used, with hundreds of tools, calloused but tender hands, and heart.
