First piece I have made in about a year. Silver sterling on a black rubber cord.

Thanks. It's my creative side coming out or just one of "my little hobbies", as my wife calls it. It's something I've been doing on and off, mostly off, for 35+ years. Right now I'm in a making mode and this new technique accomplishment has a lot of different possibilities, let's see where it goes...

Do you sell these pieces? Can you display more of them for us?

How many hours/days/weeks of work go into each one of your creations?

Good question, time is a factor and fortunately I'm very quick at it. This sterling silver bracelet was made in less than a half hour, the steps were:

-- Sawing and filing the end tubing pieces

-- Cutting wire and filing it to form the clasp and hook.

-- The hard and delicate part - soldering the clasp and hook to the tubing.

-- Polishing and cleaning all the silver (still a little more polishing needed)

-- Cutting rubber cord to size

A number of years ago I had pieces selling in Eaton at the "On The Cusp" boutique at the corner of 138 and Elm St. I sold a lot in the Boston area as well.

Right now I only have a few samples but once I build up enough inventory, I will try to get in the Cultural Council store on Main St.

This photo is a woman who is in the business of selling jewelry on the cape. I gave her a pair of earrings I made last year and every time I see a new picture of her she's wearing them. She says she never takes them off... LOL
