I began crafting earring out of vintage silver plate serving trays several years ago. I was conducting estate sales and realized that the silver plate trays and bowls hardly ever sold. I thought there must be something to do with these as no one wanted them. With these earrings (and now necklaces) I am recycling and so is the customer who buys the earrings.

Recently, I took a silver smithing class in Santa Fe and learned many techniques which have taught me to work in sterling silver. I am using those techniques to create new designs in jewelry.
