Whale Watch depicts a humpback whale breaching in an icy bay of Alaska. It is inspired by and adapted from several different photos from the area. The outer ring and bail are sterling silver as is the whale figure. The mountain backdrop is oxidized copper, the ocean foreground oxidized textured brass. The piece is suspended from (and priced to include) an 18 inch braided leather cord with sterling silver fittings and clasp. The cord can be deleted, made in a different length or exchanged for other options with appropriate price adjustments. Please message to get the details on these options.
These pieces are a new direction for me, and I'm excited at the possibilities. Others are planned, and variations or approximate duplicates can be made to order. With each one being hand cut and assembled no 2 will be quite alike. This also means details can easily be altered to suit your personal needs & tastes.
Welcome to GrayWizardMagic.com! I'm Jim, aka The Old Gray Wizard and the Wizard in Charge of this one man show.
I have been in the jewelry industry professionally since 1977 with most of my career doing repair and custom order work. I have been in the world of handcrafting for even longer.
I have continuously created some pieces on my own and offered them for sale. After all, my roots were the making and selling of crafts in the summer craft fair world. So now, as I have left the world of repair work behind I have been creating more.
With this new website and shop I am also planning on adding other creations to my jewelry work, and use the small scale metalsmithing of jewelry work to enhance other items. My lifelong interest in woodworking will come into play as well as my newly discovered interest in working with glass. Also my lifelong interest in being a (strictly amateur) poet comes into play at times. Some or all of these passions are combined in some pieces.
Most of the items I create now are one-of-a-kind. Some will be presented as 'made-to-order' once the pandemic has passed and supply lines become more reliable & predictable again.
Thank you for visiting and I hope to see folks here often.
