SoulQuest Designs

A SoulQuest Design piece begins with researching a cultural, ancient or contemporary symbol that evokes a particular emotion or feeling. I then carve a mold for the symbol using the skills I learned as a woodcarver. Precious metal clay made from reclaimed silver is rolled out to 3-4mm. The molds are used to create an impression of the symbol which is then dried and fired in a kiln at 1650 degrees. This process burns off all the clay particles to birth a pure metal charm in fine silver. I polish each individual charm and put it in a solution to create a beautiful antique patina which highlights the embossed symbol.

SoulQuest Designs’ charms are the focal point in the creation of a bracelet, necklace or earrings that are intended to resonate with a particular person through the energy that it embodies. The finished piece is presented with an inspirational card that has a description of the origin of the symbol it represents. The front of the card conveys the spiritual meaning of the symbol through my own poetic verse to inspire and uplift the recipient of the piece of jewelry.

There are over 30 symbolic and inspirational designs in the SoulQuest line. Many of the pieces of jewelry that I design are one of a kind with  special meaning for a certain customer. I welcome the opportunity to create a custom piece, unique to you, as a tangible symbol for a dream you are reaching for, a spiritual path you are on, or for strength and courage to help you overcome a challenge on your life’s journey.
