Metalsmith jewelry

Handmade Store: Alorinna

Hi! My name is Cate and I'm addicted to metal.

Before I moved to Atlanta, I was a volunteer firefighter and search and rescue specialist. I had a real reason to spent hours hiking in the woods training with my K9. I love the woods and nature. Thanks to a deeply ingrained gallows humor, I really like the occasional odd or dark thing.

After moving to Atlanta, I found myself with lots of free time and discovered a wonderful studio near my house that would let me fill in the gap of the tools and knowledge I do not yet have. I tend to work a little every night in my own studio (spare bedroom) and go buy an hour or two at the local studio every so often.

I love metalwork, and really love copper. It is so warm and yielding. I love the concept of being about to paint it with flames (yes, I know the scientific reason it reacts, but it's so much cooler to say flame painting!) and I love combining it with other materials like sterling and steel.

I still have a day job--database administrator--and metalsmithing is my escape back from the empty world of data. I sometimes drive myself crazy by thinking about the fact that what I do all day is manipulate stuff that doesn't exist. Think about it. All the data out there is simply little on and off charges on a metal platter. I think I feel a need to do something *real* and that's what drives me to the very real and tactile world of metalsmithing.

Yes, I am a geek. My favorite TV show is Big Bang Theory and my favorite game is Warcraft, in which I am a miner and get to smelt metal while fighting evildoers.

I use a variety of high quality items to make my treasures. My taste runs to the organic and funky side of things, and you'll find that most of my jewelry reflects that. I use sterling and fine silver, copper, brass, gemstones, steel, and other cool stuff. Custom orders are welcome.

I ship within two days (unless stated otherwise for custom work).

I will issue refunds within 7 days of purchase, minus shipping.

Buyer is responsible for their country's customs/VAT fees.

All my items are made in a smoke free but German Shepherd friendly home.
