People commission me for two reasons: they are drawn to my work but want something specific for an occasion/celebration that retains the essence of my aesthetic; the second reason is because they have something specific in mind and need a trusted silversmith/goldsmith to execute it but still want a bit of ‘me’ in the work. This selection of work expresses mostly the first reason and a few examples of the second reason. The commission often means acquiring new skills, inspires new work, and creates long lasting relationships. When it comes right down to it, commission work is my favorite work to do. It is often challenging and I love working with clients that trust me but also know what they want.
