About SilverSpiral Creations

 

Welcome

Hello and Welcome to SilverSpiral Creations!  Our Mission is to create wearable art jewelry for you, using nature’s most beautiful stones.  The stones we hand-select are carefully chosen from talented lapidary artisans, and we enhance each natural stone by creating a wearable setting out of sterling silver, copper, brass, or  gold.

How we Create

Every piece of jewelry is handcrafted in our studio. We use techniques such as sawing forming, soldering, pressing, grinding, hammering, and texturing.  We consider the shape, texture, color, and personality of each stone and from there, create a one-of-a-kind setting for them.

About the Artist—Lynne Patnodenewweblynne

 

As A Child, I Loved Stones. Still Do. And I Love To Wear Them…

 
How do I write my story? Over the years I have been involved in many careers: teacher, executive director, professor, music therapist. I have a Doctorate Degree in Education. With all of this, and my beautiful family of 4 daughters, a husband and numerous pets, something was always missing.

Ten years ago, I found it!

I was in a big box store one day, and I saw some gorgeous stone beads.  They were agate, and I loved them, so despite never having made jewelry, I bought them. I grabbed some bead stringing materials, crimps, a clasp and three pairs of pliers.  I  thought it would be easy–right?  Well, I found out it was more involved than I thought, so I did a little research  (I just LOVE the internet!) and began building my skills.  From that day on, I worked hard and tried to learn the skill, with very little money.  Then one day, I got a phone call from a friend I had met (she was a jewelry vendor at a conference I helped organize).  Then one day, I got a phone call from her– she was going out of the jewelry business!  She remembered that I had a passion for jewelry making and she offered to give me all of her supplies!) It was then that my business was launched!

 

I still wasn’t entirely happy with beading–so long story short, I took a metals course at a local Art Center—and I never looked back.  As it turns out, I love playing with metal as much as I love playing with stones!
 
I discovered gorgeous stone cabochons made by lapidary artisans from all over the world, and figured out how to make them wearable.  I purchased my equipment bit by bit, and now have a full working studio.  I make everything by hand, using silver, copper, brass and gold sheet metal, and I am still learning as I go.  I finally found what I wanted to do when I grow up! (Joking)
