I've been a self-employed jeweler for the last 30 years. I had a store (Dancing Panda Jewelry) in Hermosa Beach, California for 8 years before leaving L.A for the great northwest. I did International Gem and Jewelry Shows throughout the U.S. and recently have been doing the Portland Saturday Market. I also make jewelry for other businesses who are still doing the Intergem shows but enjoy staying home or doing local shows.

Ancient Coin Jewelry/Averi Designs

I have been using authentic ancient Greek and Roman coins in my jewelry for the last 30 years. Most of the pieces I put on Zibbet are silver cameos modeled off of antique plasters done in the late 1700's to early 1800's by museums in Europe. This is my AveriDesigns line. I also use modern and vintage shell, plastic and stone cameos for my models. I make molds of ancient coins, but only cast one side when doing a reproduction.
