Fabrication, in silversmith jewelry, is a term referring to building a piece layer by layer. It all begins with an idea.
And the idea is brought to life using sheets of silver and coil. Each layer is bound together by applying heat.
The basic techniques involve sawing, forming, soldering, filing and different types of finishing. It is a long process that gets more exciting as the work takes shape.
Each piece I make can take anything between 4 to 8 hours to be completed. It is a fantastic feeling to bring an idea to life, but my greatest joy comes when I see a customer wearing my work! That’s when all the working hours building, filling, setting gemstones and polishing makes it worth it.
