Blacksmithing came from a time when hand craftsmanship was all there was. Metal, Stone and Glass workers helped to improve our quality of life. We try to honour that history as we create one of a kind pieces of wearable art, often called "jewellery". A "team", in our case a husband and wife team, bring together organizational skills as well as design and creative skills. Our desire is to grow in our individual talents, as we combine them to create ever more interesting work. The hope is these one of a kind pieces of jewellery will to be worn and enjoyed by others for years to come.
