In my studio practice I keep my materials simplerecycled silver, glass beads (which are often old and served a different purpose before me), fiber... I use basic jewelry techniques and few chemicals. By nature I am not extreme. I dont proclaim to be 100% green or knowledgeable in my studio practice but I do make an effort. I have spurts of information gathering and change. I welcome input and strive to be thoughtful about how the things I do in my studio have larger consequences. I use citrus pickle and flux without potassium bifluoride.
