“My handcrafted items do not display machine-made perfection. I fully embrace the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, that there is great beauty in imperfection. I stand for slow-made, hand work, skilled craftsmanship, one on one relationship.

I mainly use sterling silver, but also enjoy playing with copper and brass. Texture to me is the most appealing feature of any metal object, and I achieve a wide variety of it through reticulation, hammering, roll printing, and stamping. Keum-bo, patinas, genuine gemstones and pearls add color, dimension and mystery.” -Rejane
