We're especially excited to share a new metalworking technique, Mokume Gane, with you all! Beth had an awesome time learning to work in this medium—it's made with thin layers of recycled sterling silver and copper. The top layer is sanded down to reveal the layer below, and this allows an artistto create swirling patterns that we think resemble the sandstone cliffs that make up Pictured Rocks. You can see this texture on our Grand Portal and Mini Grand Portal Pendants.
Beth has also been experimenting with shape! Our Lakeshore Sunset Earrings feature a mixed metal design and a unique, upside-down teardrop shape.
With the dramatic rise in COVID cases in the Upper Peninsula and particularly Marquette county, for the safety of our staff and customers we've decided to temporarily close our showroom to customers. We remain open digitally and our staff is available for phone orders, emails and curbside pick up of orders from 10am-5pm Monday-Saturday.
