Sonja McClung, of SilverRiverJewelry on ArtFire, specializes in unique handmade jewelry. She lives in Akron, Ohio and is a wife and mother of 2 teenagers, as well as the owner of 3 dogs and 3 cats. She has a passion for family, the outdoors, and designing jewelry. She has always had a fascination with flames and says, "The play of colors in the fire pit, the way the flames dance and change color are fascinating to me to this day." She loves the fact that she can actually use fire to create something beautiful and wearable. Sonja says, "With the flame I can meld my love of lapidary (rocks) and my love of metal and flame and begin to create a piece from scratch with no purchased components." She hopes her skill and imagination will conitnue to grow. She finds that the design process is always an adventure. She never knows exactly what the piece will evolve into. My own creative process works the same way. The end result can be very interesting indeed.

Below is just a small sample of the many beautiful pieces available from Silver River Jewelry.
