Rosa Kilgore -Jewelry
Using the lost wax castig method, combined with other ancient and modern techniques, I create textured sterling silver and ancient bronze jewelry. A trained slversmith, most of my pieces are first fabricated in silver and then molded for casting. Occasionally I use modeling wax or other meduius to create a piece before casting. ALl of my finding, includingear wires are sterling silver. The freshwater (cultured) pearls I use are chosen for their imperfect shapes and earthy, natural colors. I also use many semi-precious stones such as garnet, amethyst, American turquoise (currently sleeping beauty until I run out), pyrite, lava, and more.
