Here at Yellow's Creations I create unique handmade jewelry using any combination of sterling silver (925), Argentium silver (935), fine silver (999), gold, platinum, and precious stones. I also create fine stoneware pottery with an emphasis on Japanese inspired tea ware.
Jewelry: I am 100% self-taught. I have always been inspired by the beauty and power of fire and wanted to be able to create by harnessing that force. After scanning through some books I purchased the basic equipment I needed to start experimenting. It took off from there. I began with filigree and it remains one of my favorite techniques. However, I never stopped experimenting and I am constantly adding new techniques to my skill set and enjoy each and every one of them.
Pottery: I am largely self-taught but have done a 3 month study in Japan in 2019 with 2 pottery masters. One in Seto, who is a 12th generation grand-master and another in Tajimi, who is a renowned artist. My intention is to go back and further my knowledge of Japanese pottery techniques.
I began Yellow's Creations in 2008 in Pennsylvania and have since gotten married and moved to Belgium. After a couple year hiatus, I have been able to re-open Yellow's Creations under the name Yellow Monkey VOF.
Each piece is handmade from beginning to end solely by me; because of this I have complete control of the final product. Please contact me with any questions you may have.
