Sinish bioIn 2005, I began to explore jewelry design, with a special passion for wire and metal creations. I have learned primarily through books, DVDs, extensive workshops, and classes. Then, through practice and a passionate driving force, I keep honing my techniques and skills.

With time, patience, and practice, I have been able to create original designs that combine wire and metal with beads, glass, and found objects that complement them.

I work with a mix of metals, including copper, bronze, brass, silver, steel, and nickel using what’s called the cold connection technique, meaning without the use of solder. I manipulate the wire and metal with simple hand tools to create the shapes and dimensions that I like. If I want even more dimension, I use hammers, forging tools, and even objects. To add depth, warmth, and an antiqued appearance, I add a patina to all the copper pieces.

Through the process, I handle each piece of jewelry dozens of times. The process is both labor- and time-intensive, but well worth the effort.

My jewelry is now shown and sold in juried galleries and shops.  It has also been a joy to teach others how to create jewelry.
