Tools and Materials
From drills, to pliers, and more hammers than Thor can poke a stick at. Here are but a few of the many tools I use in the studio every day. I love tools and machines. I’ve had to curb my machinery habit, both for financial and spacial reasons.
My favourite tool is the rolling mill (not pictured here), and next favourite investment is the tumbler, which has saved me years of cleaning time.

Materials include gold for commissioned work, sterling and fine silver, copper, brass, recycled materials, organic materials, and polymer (though I’m edging out of the polymer world unless it’s recycled).
