New Products + Images Added to Website!!!!




I am so excited to announce and launch two new series plus a huge array of new images of my work on my website!

You can see the pieces from my new Appetizer Serving Series and Bar Accessories in my portfolio and they are available for immediate purchase in the Home category of my online Shop. New functional pieces include silver bar spoons, decanter bottle tags, a cheese knife, a spreader, condiment spoons, and an appetizer fork.

My new and original jewelry line Torc Jewelry Series can also be viewed in my portfolio and the pieces can be purchased directly in the Jewelry Category of my online Shop.  The new line includes a bracelet, earring, and pendant.  More designs coming soon!

Additionally, my existing designs got some attention too and you can see those new images throughout the online Shop with the products.  For those of you who know me well, you will recognize several friends and family who were supportive enough to model my work.  Instead of contrived models in fantasy settings, I choose to use real people in settings that portray my work in a natural environment.  Who better to represent my work than the people closest to me who inspire me everyday with their own unique style?

Check out the images by clicking on the product!  Images of my functional pieces in use, jewelry being worn in several real life settings by a variety of age groups, and an adorable baby playing with his rattle and eating from a baby spoon are just some of the outstanding ways my work is portrayed!  Enjoy!

Many thanks to Paul Cheney and Jason Kaumeyer of JWKPEC for all of the awesome photography!!! Check out more of their work at

Carolina Makers Exhibition – April 2015












The South Carolina State Museum’s focus is South Carolina, 100%, especially when it comes to their exhibitions and collection. The major exhibition Carolina Makers will allow an even greater opportunity to expand on the producers, craftspeople and musicians from across the state. This exhibition focuses specifically on individuals who make objects by hand for everyday use – for individuals locally and around the world.

Silversmith Kaminer Haislip will have a variety of functional handcrafted objects featured in the exhibition. The Carolina Makers exhibition will be on view at the SC State Museum in Columbia, SC from April 18, 2015 – February 7, 2016.

Lilac Cufflinks for Hamish Bowles, International Editor at Large for Vogue Magazine

Hamish showing off cufflinks LilacCufflinks


As the International Editor at Large for Vogue, Hamish Bowles is recognized as one of the most respected authorities on the worlds of fashion and interior design. With one of the largest private collections of vintage clothing in the world, this dapper, globetrotting style icon has made a name for himself as a fashion historian.

Friday, March 13, 2015 he was the guest lecturer at the Gibbes Museum of Art spring luncheon.  The Gibbes invited me to design and make a special gift for him, which were the silver Lilac Cufflinks pictured above.  I was inspired by his passion for the color lilac and designed the cufflinks based on the flower.  The other image is of him showing them off to the ladies at the luncheon.  It was quite an honor to create something unique for such a renowned fashion figure!

Rob Howard Makers Photography Series – March 2015



Back in November 2014 I met a really interesting couple at my studio at Redux and we had a nice conversation.  I just happened to be there that day as the following day I was going to the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show.  It was a great chance encounter and the next week Lisa and Rob Howard contacted me about being part of a photography series Rob was working on based on artists and makers.  I was honored to be included and he shot me in my studio amongst my tools and equipment.  The portrait he included in his series is posted here.

Launching very soon on my website will be new images, products, and a line of jewelry!  

Over the past month I have been working with the incredibly talented Paul Cheney and Jason Kaumeyer of JWKPEC on four different shoots of my jewelry being worn by my friends and my functional pieces in use.  This image was taken on location at the Warehouse in downtown Charleston, located at 45 Spring Street.  The Warehouse was great to work with and we enjoyed their delicious food and excellent drinks during the shoot.  Their space is gorgeous and we were so excited to use it for a jewelry shoot!  Stay tuned as the images will be posted on my website soon!
