My name is Ildiko and I am a self-taught silversmith.
Ildiko is a hungarian name which means 'warrior'.
It really is my name & perfect for how I hammer & shape each slick piece of silver meticulously into gorgeous jewelry which I enjoy selling at over 100 outdoor markets each year in all sorts of weather conditions!
The moment I first picked up a torch to melt silver I realized I was born to solder. There is something truly special about the way silver melts and transforms into whatever design I like.
I love the way it looks, works and lasts.
Each piece of my unique jewelry starts out as a ribbon of raw sterling silver that I heat with a torch, shape, solder, hammer, file and polish to perfection.
