An elegant synthesis of sustainability and design, my new Ethaus Collection uses the most responsibly sourceable materials currently available within the industry. These enduring heirlooms, talismans, and wearable sculptures are timeless classics that customers will feel proud to wear and to pass down from generation to generation. I sculpt and hand-forge all jewelry directly in the metal using a variety of traditional jewelry making techniques including twisting, chasing, soldering, patinas, stone-setting and more. My Classics Collection is a 44 year evolution of workmanship and design. I offer these designs in sterling silver and 14k gold-filled wire made to the same high standards. Fine jewelry at a more accessible pricepoint. Finally, my signature line of eco haute couture necklaces, rings and earrings are made from found objects (driftwood, beach rock, and sea glass) in elegant juxtaposition with 18k gold, silver, diamonds, pearls and other precious materials. This dynamic contrast of elements invites the wearer/admirer to reconsider what it is they consider precious. All my work is made with an eye towards and a passion for supporting sustainability throughout the jewelry industry.
