To “Scry” is to gaze into a pool of water,
a crystal ball or jewel,
and see visions of spirits or divination.
This technique transcends culture:
practiced all over the world by many peoples.
The Scrying Amulet
A Sphere of opalescent glass gripped in a sterling silver hand.
The classic image of a crystal ball
set into the fingers of a tiny sculpted hand
The Scrying Amulet is designed to hang on a top bail
which sweeps around the wrist like a tiny serpent.
The glass is opalescent creating a multi-colored effect
swirling as it turns,
bouncing light through it’s spherical lens.

This is the Original Wolf Ring in my collection of jewelry
Originally designed to match the Wolf Amulet,
this ring has the portrait of a wolf gazing at you.
The face is not flat,
rather it is designed more as a “high Relief” sculpture
with the texture of fur
reaching out into the shank
(the band that goes around your finger)
giving it a very organic look to the piece.
The Wolf Ring
I make each ring as they are ordered,
Allowing each ring to be size to fit you.
I can also include an inscription if you choose.
Gold available on request.

I was once approached by a client who wanted to have a Dragon Money Clip with spring loaded Jaws.
The original was inspired by the movie Face-Off starling John Travolta and Nicolas Cage.
Because I am very concerned about copy right issues,
I discussed with my client about using the concept of a dragon money clip with working jaws,
but to create the money clip with a different style of dragon head.
The result was the first of my money clips.
After the original Money clip was created,
I received a request for a larger version with a deeper set of jaws.
Flame the Dragon Money Clip
I extended the nose and altered the scales
retaining the style
eye lid settings worked into the design.
2 1/2″ by 1 1/2″ (6.8 cm by 3.8 cm)
deep set, spring loaded jaws to grip your folding money.
made of Sterling Silver or Bronze
Stones for the eyes range from red, green, and blue synthetic,
black onyx, and hematite cabochons.
If you wish to go natural: red garnets and other stones on request.

The Pocket Wand,
A tube of copper gilded with a silver run of oak leaves in a clockwise spiral.
A clutch of holly holds a quartz in place,
The pummel set with a Moonstone in the grounding end.
The piece was designed to hold a rolled scroll with a blessing, inserted before completion.
The Pocket Wand
A wand to be easily carried and discreetly used. The person for whom I made it has harnessed the wand’s shape to help her stop smoking, hence the “shape of a cigarette”. Each time she want to smoke, she would take it out and hold it – remembering not to light the business end!
Currently in a private collection.

This unique and beautiful symbol is omnipresent in Ghana. It is the most popular in decoration: a reflection on the deeply religious character of the Ghanaian people.
Custom Gye Nyame Amulet
Symbol of the Omnipotence and the Omnipresence Of God. From the Akan aphorism: Abode santann yi firi tete; obi nte ase a onim ne ahyease, na obi ntena ase nkosi ne awie, Gye Nyame. Literal translation: This great panorama of creation dates back to time immemorial; no one lives who saw its beginning and no one will live to see its end, Except God.
Gye Nyame is a symbol meaning “I am afraid of none but God,” or: “Nyame biribi wo sor” suggests that good things come from above. More information about this symbol and it’s back ground may be found in an earlier article.
I have within my jewelry line the amulet in two sizes, one larger deeply carved piece, a smaller flat version and matching earrings. A client who has enjoyed her set requested the larger piece modified to accommodate a much larger chain. The result was to turn the Custom Gye Nyame Amulet into a more leaf-like shape.
This is a one-of-a-kind piece currently in a private collection. Because I specialize in custom, I am able to modify any of my pieces to fit your ideas and needs. To learn more about custom jewelry can sculpture please visit my How to order Custom page.
