Jewelry for Working Hands
Thank you so much for being here and checking out my jewelry. Each one starts out as just a sheet of silver, and a pretty rock.
Every band, backplate, and tiny detail are sketched then hand sawed out. They're meticulously soldered, sanded, filed, etched, and shined.
Every piece is one of a kind, and every aspect is handmade. Each one is filled with time, love, probably some sweat (don't worry, I clean them), and most definitely a couple swear words, so you know it's good. Check out my page and pieces, and don't hesitate to reach out with any questions!
Stay Wild Friends!
I'm Teslie, metalsmith, wife, & mama. I live in the most beautiful place in the world, my family's little ranch in the foothills of the Rocky's.
I started smithing after I had my daughter. I was feeling very lost in the new world of mama-to-two, and started looking for something to help me adjust to this new season of life.
Metalsmithing had always been a dream so I decided to take the chance on myself and go for it. I bought the tools, and started taking every class I could find during naps, and after bedtime. Shortly after that my jewelry collection was getting a little aggressive and I decided to take the next step and share my jewelry, which led to the creation of Smith Creek Metalworks.
There has been a lot of trial and error (heavy on the error) along the way, and I'm still learning and evolving my craft constantly, but I love every minute of it, and hope you can see that in the pieces I create.
