Most Kono & Sono pieces are created through a process called Lost Wax Casting, my favorite metalsmithing technique.

I start with a sketch on paper and carve my design into a wax block, making a three-dimensional piece. A mold is made of my carving and cast with molten metal, turning my original creation into bronze, silver, or gold. The resulting jewelry is completely unique, crafted by real human hands, and made in the USA.

Time, love, and thoughtful care goes into making each and every Kono & Sono design. Have fun picking out your favorite!
