My shop is an outlet for my creative side. I specialize in chainmaille jewelry and Bavarian Folk Art objects.
My jewelry is made with high quality rings made in the USA. My materials of choice are Silver and, Gold and Silver filled. I also work in Aluminum, Brass, Copper and Steel...what I like to refer to as the ABCs. These materials are less costly but no less lovely than Silver and Gold.
I love jewelry (my husband calls it my "hardware" ) and every item I make is crafted as something that I would want in my own collection and some items are!
Why Silver and Wood? When I was in school I took a number of art classes from painting to pottery to jewelry making and enjoyed it immensely. Then life got in the way and here I am, retired after 35 years in the corporate world, with lots of time on my hands to devote to the hobbies I love.
In 2001 I started painting Bavarian Folk Art and fell in love with it. I call it my therapy. I work on wood, glass and metal. Always given as gifts, I was often asked why I don't offer these for sale.
Then I started making chain mail jewelry after seeing a necklace on television that I liked. One thing led to another and my obsession is out of control. Having lots of my own ladies' hardware already, I thought I would offer my creations for sale along with some of my painted objects and Silver and Wood was born.
In addition to my silver and wood obsessions, I also read, knit and bake bread. In 2014 I retired from a demanding job in the corporate world. Whoever said I would be bored in retirement was dead wrong. I love what I do and am busier than ever.
