Textural fine silver laced with earthy, natural stones and gem-quality fossils

After seeing a simple lariat that a coworker had purchased, Christine Norton dove headlong into numerous metalsmithing and chain making classes. While she continues to work at a traditional office job, her 15-year jewelry “hobby” has turned into a passionate side career. Her work has appeared in numerous publications including Metal Clay Artist Magazine, The Crafts Report, and several editions of The Art of Metal Clay Jewelry calendar and PMC Guild Annuals.
