About Me

Certified Argentium Silver Jeweler

My name is Nancy Jackson and these pieces were created from my imagination and handcrafted by me.  I have always been a creative person and used several mediums throughout my life.  When I discovered jewelry design and fabrication several years ago I was immediately fascinated.

It all began with a trip to Santa Fe, NM.  I had a necklace design in my head and I spent 3 days shopping all of Santa Fe and Taos for it.  I could find nothing close.  Then I came across a bead store and thought I'll just make it and make it I did!

I bought books and beads and a few tools.  My design was exactly what I wanted but my technique lacked a lot!!  Here is a picture of that very first necklace.

The picture shown is after several years when I had finally restrung it and made the new bail and design on the focal bead.  I also handmade a clasp.  I still love this design that started it all.  And I fell in love with designing and making jewelry.

My first designs were beaded jewelry.  My creativity flourished and I made sure each piece made was of the highest qualify with outstanding construction.

A few years ago I was no longer satisfied to use purchased components in my pieces.  I wanted to make my own and fabricate metal jewelry completely by hand.  I was fortunate enough to meet a wonderful goldsmith with 30 years experience who was teaching classes in various metalsmithing techniques.

After only a few classes I was armed with enough knowledge to give it a try on my own.  By trial and error and online videos and books I gained experience and knowledge.  I have also been blessed to have had several classes with a world renown teacher which helped me to excel even further in my craft.

My favorite metal is argentium silver.  It has the strength of sterling without tarnishing.  It has a beautiful white appearance.  It does not develop firescale when soldering and with only a few adjustments it can be fabricated the same at other silvers.

I have lived in Oklahoma for over 50 years except for a few short years in Tucson, AZ.  I currently live in Edmond, OK and am also a licensed Realtor. I have three adult children, 2 sons and 1 daughter.  I have 1 daughter-in-law and 1 son-in-law.  I also have 13 grandchildren and 2 great great grandchildren.

I have been making and selling jewelry since 2008.
