Fantasy Mage’s Spell Rings

The high fantasy genre has always been a great source of inspiration for me. I love spellcasting mages and chainmaille armor, elves and elementals. Whether in books, games, or movies it doesn’t matter. Usually when this muse inspires my jewelry it’s in the materials or accents. This time I took it literally and translated classic mage spells into detailed sterling silver rings.

First to be created was the Ice Arrow Ring. This sleek number features a denim lapis lazuli as the power source. The centerpiece is surrounded by twisted wire and set in a serrated bezel. Wrapped around the band is a classic arrow shape.

Next was the Fireball Ring with a nice wide band. Fireball is an iconic mage spell, represented here by a fiery carnelian. The flames were all cut freehand to channel the movement of fire. Following in this line of thinking, the markings of its forged creation were left to see. Hammer marks and roughness, brought out by oxidation and enhanced with stamped semicircles.

These initial two spells led to a special request for a Magic Missile Ring. This powerful spell is also a classic to be found in many mages’ grimoires. Amethyst is the perfect stone to capture the unerring arcane power of a magic missile. To detail the magic missile wrapped around the band, I carved custom steel stamps for a trailing arc of power and a sparkle of energy at the ends.

Jewelry Showcase: Summer Earrings

These past few months have been a lot of fun. Almost my whole family has summer birthdays so I’ve been making gifts and other new jewelry. The heat in my garage studio is intense, but it can’t keep me away from the metal and the torch.

Since there are many pieces to show, the galleries can be themed. Here are the earrings!

New Jewelry: Month of May

Here’s a selection of the new jewelry I designed and crafted over the past month. I used to use a lot more copper but shifted at some point towards using mostly silver. Lately I’ve been bringing back the copper and I love it! It brings a lot of warmth to the jewelry and it’s a really fun metal to work with.

Most of these are available in my Etsy shop.

Organic Shapes Necklace in Copper and Silver


Today I made a necklace and I let the metal guide me. The silver was a sharp piece with a few circles cut from its sides. I rounded its spikes and edges, then found a piece of copper with a similar vibe and did the same. A brushed surface finishes it off and adds to the natural, organic feeling.


The patina was reluctant to brush away from the metal, leaving it looking dark and extra aged. I love how many things these shapes can look like. Every time I look there’s something new hidden in the silhouette.

March Jewelry Collection

Throughout March I learned a lot about space and astrophysics. One of my favorite sources of learning has been the Cosmos show. It is hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson and gives an incredible look into our universe. The knowledge I’ve been soaking up has definitely come through as inspiration in my latest work.

The stackers aren’t a new item but I didn’t have any model shots before. Shown on my wonderful model and love of my life Kenzie. I’m really pleased with how these came out, especially because they’re shown as midi rings too!
