Introducing the new Coquille Collection!
The summer is definitely my favorite season and the beach is my happy place. I was inspired by my beach walks along the north shore of Long Island to create a new collection based on abstracted sea forms, shells and waves.
My sketchbook is filled with doodles that I then transformed into textured and three dimensional sterling silver pieces that are the backbone of the collection. Although I do not generally work with pearls, I think they definitely add some fun to the oyster inspired pieces! Sapphires and blue zircon gemstones are the blues in the line. Each piece is individually handmade and therefore one of a kind.
So far there are about 20 pieces completed and more coming. Possibly some blackened pieces and gold accents as well. Rings and bracelets will round out the collection and will be online next week.

When you are in the Hamptons, stop in and try them on! I would love to meet you and hear what you think.

Today in the studio I have been working on some new jewelry that was inspired by the Hydrangea flowers in my garden and the Lily Pads in my pond.
After making sketches of the flowers and lily pads I hand carve them out of wax and then cast the wax sculptures into solid sterling silver pieces. The silver castings need a lot of cleaning up and polishing, so I am currently covered in silver dust.
I decided to solder various arrangements of the Hydrangeas to resemble a natural looking cluster that you would see in the garden and the same with the lily pads. It's fun to come up with different ways to use each casting. These images below are the lily pads being soldered together with the torch and then a soak in the pickle which gets the pieces clean after soldering.
The various soldered arrangements will be made into earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets. And, the fun part...tiny blue diamonds are going to be added to the center of some of the Hydrangeas and tiny green diamonds will create a 'frog' on the lily pads!
Another fun day in the studio.

Hi Jewelry Lovers,
I am setting up my schedule for the holiday season and would like to know if anyone is interested in hosting a Garden of Silver Trunk Show (AKA Jewelry Party)?
I will provide $100 towards the purchase of appetizers/wine and arrive with a large selection of my handmade jewelry for your guests to purchase that evening.
The jewelry will range from $25-$250 so there will be something for everyone’s budget. My pieces are all individually handmade from sterling silver and some pieces have touches of 24K gold accents. Some of the pieces can be seen on my website but I usually bring the newest creations. I also have a very large selection of handmade, one of a kind, fused art glass wrapped in sterling pendants as well. Perfect for holiday gifts. Your guests can purchase by check, credit card, PayPal or cash and leave with their jewelry that evening so there is nothing else you have to do.
I am happy to provide you with an invitation you can email to your guests or paper ones if you prefer. Usually these trunk shows last about two hours with a minimum of 10 guests. Right now I am only doing shows in the NY/NJ/CT areas.
The hostess will also receive $150 in free jewelry of your choice as a thank you from Garden of Silver. Please let me know if you are interested via email or give me a call. I appreciate your support of my handmade in the USA jewelry company.
