Thank you for stopping by my web page!
My name is Rainie Barton. and a Massachusetts native. I am a retired high school teacher and educator, now loving my new job as an artist, jeweler and metalsmith. I love natural and organic subjects and hope you do too! Sterling Silver, copper and brass are my main media, but when I can afford it, I like to work in gold as well. I'm always game for a challenge, so I do accept commissions. Please call or email with any questions you may have.

Sterling Silver Playful Cat Heart Pendant
Sterling silver, light-hearted cat, playing with a sapphire or gem of your choice. The pendant has a wonderful texture that feels velvety. The pendant is approximately 2" high by 1.5" wide and comes with a chain in the style and size of your choice. See it on Etsy at the link below:
Sterling Silver Snowflake Cuff
This sterling silver cuff is one of my favorites. The snowflake is designed around what is nick-named a snowball opal. The stone is dendrite with some opal and chalcedony that mimics a winter snow scene. Much loved by skiers and winter enthusiasts. The snowflake is approximately 2" in height and 1.5" in width. Interested in this design or have an idea of your own? See this bracelet and others on Etsy at the link below:
