I grew up in California and have been a Sun Worshiper all my life. I am fascinated by ancient Folklore stories about mythical Gods capturing the Sun. Here are a few of my “Del Sol” series pendants and talismans.

Native American Sun Turtle

Native American Sun Turtle – Kiln Fired Fine Silver

The designs are first drawn in black and white, then made into a rubber stamp. I stamped the design into bronze, copper, or silver precious metal clay. As soon as the clay dries, I fire it in a small jewelry kiln. Voila! Drill a hole in the top, attach a bail, and polish for an hour in a rotary drum. Easy to make, gorgeous to wear!
