Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
Goldsmiths are the descendants of an ancient trade. There are few of us left, and we strive to continue a legacy which began thousands of years before our time. My desire is to give new life to this dying art. My endeavor is to craft the ocean’s waves and gusts of wind into tangible, wearable pieces of art. My tools have become an extension of my hands, where they form and forge the natural elements into works that are entirely unique. Pouring nature’s rhythms into my work, I want each piece to be another step in a steady climb toward perfection.

I am currently the Apprentice of Master Goldsmith, Terry Whyte of Golden Artistry Jewelry Design in La Mesa, California. After Terry retires, I will be taking over the shop. I have been training for a few years and I have won various awards for my designs. I am also attending GIA to get my Graduate Gemologist degree.

To request a custom piece please send me an email at:

80923-456x282-garnets-hero by GoldsmithsApprentice
January's Birth Stone: Garnet

Interesting Facts:

-The word 'garnet' is derived from the Greek word 'granatum' which means seed of pomegranate.

-Garnet exists in many colors, such as black, green, pink, or even colorless. While the garnet is actually found in a rainbow of colors, most people associate the birthstone with its deep red hue.

-Garnets have a proud history beyond being beautiful to wear. Ancient warriors believed that garnets brought them victory. The Crusaders used them as protection against wounds and accidents during their journeys.

-While garnets were historically considered a handy life insurance policy, in 1892, the Hunzas in Karakoram region (In Pakistan) used garnet bullets to fight off imperial British forces. They believed garnet bullets were more effective than lead bullets!



Ethereal
Hand fabricated with three wires of 14K Rose Gold, woven around .20 ctw. in Diamonds, and an incredible 1.6 ct. transparent rainbow Moonstone.

You can't buy moonstone of this quality anymore. The photo doesn't do it justice... Imagine the northern lights inside a clear globe. That's what it looks like.

Enchanted

Zirc by GoldsmithsApprentice
December's Birth Stone(s): Blue Zircon

Fun Facts:

-The name "Zircon" is commonly confused with "Cubic Zirconia" or CZ. Zircon is a natural stone, while Cubic Zirconias are man-made.

-Since Medieval times, Zircon has brought wisdom, honor and wealth to those who possess it. It is especially prized for protecting travelers from harm, and even today, the Hindus believe Zircon can stimulate spiritual growth.

-Traces of radioactive elements are often contained in the Zircon's structure.


Tanz by GoldsmithsApprentice

December's Birth Stone(s): Tanzanite

Fun Facts:

-Found only in ONE Place in the World- Mererani Hills of Northern Tanzania, near the city of Arusha and Mount Kilimanjaro

-Tanzanite is "trichroic", meaning it gives off three different colors.

-Known to have the power to activate and integrate the energies and helps in metaphysical healing.

-Technically speaking, Tanzanite is blue zoisite.


Pirouette
#Throwback
#TBT
