About me

Southerly Arts™ is my marketplace for my two main lines of jewelry:

  • Cicada Silver™:  Sterling & fine silver jewelry (traditional metalsmithing & silver metal clay) and occasionally a few 14k gold-filled chainmaille items
  • Libellula Jewelry™:  Beaded, etched, base metal clay, & anodized titanium and niobium jewelry

I studied precious metal clay and traditional metalsmithing in Nashville and New Orleans.  Beading, electrolytic etching, electroforming, and anodizing were entirely self-taught.
