This listing is for (1) sterling silver twist band adorned with Sonoran Mountain Turquoise. Not too small and not too big, it's the perfect everyday ring!
*All of my items are made with my two hands from scratch with sterling silver and raw stones + a torch, solder, hand saw, hand files, and sandpaper. Because of this, no items are perfect. I truly believe it's the slight imperfections that give these pieces the character that deserves to be worn :)
Through this 4+ year journey of recurrent loss / infertility, I've realized and learned a lot about myself (if this is new to ya, you can read this letter where I share more).
One of the many things that's become so clear is that I spend a lottttt of time in front of a computer.
To help with that, my husband, Brian, and I started working in the shop together...
And while he's making super fun woodcarvings, I've been doing a little crafting too... as you can see here :)
I've been learning to silversmith - the art of making jewelry fully by hand from raw silver materials + raw stones.
While I'm super far from a 'fine-jeweler', the peace of heading out to the shop, cranking some worship music, and slowly crafting these pieces has been one (of many) saving graces during this battle.
As we move into starting the IVF process in January, I will no longer metalsmith to make sure I'm protecting myself / my body fully. That being said, I don't want to say this is a one-and-done kinda thing, but I don't know when I'll sell more jewelry. My best guess is that it will hopefully be once we have an earth-side babe which could be well over a year from now :)
Thank you so much for your love and support. It really means SO much!
