Recently I have been using a much wider range of materials, much of them more easily affordable. They present opportunities for great design, but it's always good to have a choice of items using the traditional precious metals and gemstones.
Many of these have been in my gallery Deerwoman Designs at Artisans Market. That site is temporarily down for reconstruction but you will find many there when it is back up. In the meantime check my other shops (links here on the blog) where I will be slowly adding some of these for the holidays.
