Filigree, enamel and custom handmade jewelry
Nora designs, forms, files, saws, fuses, hammers, and polishes every piece of jewelry by hand. She mainly works with Argentium sterling silver - a hypoallergenic, highly tarnish resistant silver alloy guaranteed to be made using 100% recycled metal. Filigree and fused glass enamel jewelry make up the majority of her work, as well as custom wedding and engagement rings.
Each filigree piece takes multiple hours to complete - forming every wire shape individually and ensuring they fit into the outline without overcrowding is a precise art. While the jewelry looks delicate, the joining of the wires forms a surprisingly strong web of silver.
