Creating hand-fabricated designs using only traditional metalsmithing techniques, Little Cat Metals begins with American recycled sterling silver and gold with ethically sourced stones minimizing environmental impact. Using fire, muscle, and traditional tools like a hammer, mandrel, pliers and snips; the designs spring from my sketchbook or at times it’s a free-flowing process and takes shape while forming. Little things in my surroundings give inspiration like my garden or the shape of a window above a doorway. The cut-outs on the back of bezels are cut by hand bringing an additional design feature and more life to the pieces.
Little Cat Metals strives to offer a diverse price point focusing on providing a handmade quality high design, ethical and artistic piece of wearable art
