Tenitic jewelry is the outcome of extensive experimentation with the capacity and resilience of small gauge stainless steel wire.  Each link is individually handmade using a TIG welder and a special alloyed & tempered 300 series wire which measures sixteen-thousandths of an inch (.016") in diameter.  

    I've always had an inclination toward non-traditional processes and materials in my jewelry.  I find that most work created from precious metals and with conventional fabrication methods lack any perceptible inquiry or discovery....  I'm compelled to uncover the possibilities apart from these standards.  With the Tenitic pieces, the result is an extremely delicate looking form that reveals its material nature in reflectiveness and strength.
