Bio

Sally Craig started taking jewelry classes at age 13 in Arlington Mass. She graduated Skidmore College in 1982 with a BA in Economics and the University of Washington in 1985 with a BFA in Metal Design. It was at the UW that she studied with Mary Lee Hu, who introduced her to fine wire work. After returning to the Boston area in 1987 she started her own line of jewelry focusing her designs around the exacting technique she still employs today.

Process

The 20g sterling silver warps are wrapped in 30g 22k gold and fine silver wires creating the various patterns.

 

As the weaving progresses, various alterations to the shape can be achieved by bending the warps.

 

Once the rest of the piece is fabricated from sterling silver and 18k gold, the entire piece is oxidized with liver of sulfur, turning all the silver black. The last step is to set the stones.

Measurements for earrings include the earwire, if applicable.  Measurements for the pendants include the bail.  Chains are typically 16″ or 18″.  An extender is available upon request.
