I use only 99.99% fine silver in the form of PMC which I free form (band) or cast in a mold to ensure the detail's consistency. I then file, smooth, and fire using a hand torch and safety cores to ensure correct sizing . Finally, I polish the piece to a high shine or use a patina to give it an aged look. Pricing is determined by the silver weight of each piece as well as the time it take to create and refine. Please feel free to contact me with any questions!
