In this site you’ll find a variety of posts which are photos and descriptions of jewelry pieces I’ve made. It is best not to think of this site as a blog, but as a gallery, or perhaps a catalogue of sorts. The order of the postings is somewhat arbitrary. Don’t let the dates fool you into thinking “newer is fresher.” I have a backlog that I need to catch up on, and then I’ll be adding pieces as they are made. Think of the dates more like numbered pages in a catalogue.
I have been making jewelry since I was in high school (that is some time ago). I enjoy the process of idea, design, problem solving, the steps in fabrication and completion. I haven’t tried very hard to sell the pieces. In my case that would detract me from the reason I make these pieces. I do feel tremendous satisfaction when others respond to the pieces I’ve made, and I have given away and sold many.
I’ve set up this site as a place where I can direct interested people to view my work. I hope you enjoy it. And if you see something you’d like to own, drop me a note in the comment section.
Dear Mr. Schultzki,
I am very interested in purchasing the silver belt buckle shown in your Christmas catalogue, if it is still available.
I AM very uncomfortable with this bargaining procedure. That is why I can’t go to garage sales, the idea of offering too little or too much money makes me nervous and I begin to sweat profusely. I find it a most unpleasant experience!
I do like so many of your pieces, and would love to give my husband the silver buckle, if it is still available, for Christmas. I do hope perhaps you could make an exception this once and just provide me what you consider a fair price for your beautiful work. If my pocketbook is healthy enough, I will gladly pay you and avoid that nervous sweaty condition.
And since we are getting closer to Christmas, perhaps you could hurry with that information.

Dear Ms. Katarina Watters:
Unfortunately the belt is no longer available and even more unfortunater is that I cannot fabricated another in time for Christmas (oh that I had a workshop full of elves). But perhaps you will commission me to make one for Laury for a future gift-giving event? You sound like a nice person so I will not make you go through the scary negotiating process in that future.
Hi, My name is Mary Schloss and I was looking for your contact information.
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss the details.
Do you have any more “cup” pendants?
I’m happy to make one for you Genevieve.
Hi. Very nice book bag. What are the dimensions? I could use it for my laptop maybe.
Hey Jum! You can see I’m feeling much better. I can make it any dimensions you want. You can even choose the leather.
