I am a self taught jewelry maker.  My passion is stones, both precious and semi-precious.  I started wire wrapping stones which led to wire weaving and lately to filigree.  Filigree jewelry is made with wire that has been twisted and then flattened.  Each filigree piece has numerous solder points and it has been quite a learning curve to securely solder each piece in place and not end up with a large ball of silver.  All of my work is sterling silver or 14 ct gold filled or a combination of the two.  Every once and a while I get the urge to work in copper, so there might be a couple pieces added as they are made.
