7 years. 7 years of wonderful memories, of difficult times, of many laughs, of many tears. 7 years of loving each other through it all. Thank you for never wavering, my love. Thank you for your undying support, and letting me find my way. It always leads to you. 7 years. 7 years and soon-to-be three beautiful daughters. They are the best and worst of both of us, the only gifts I could ask for, and I can’t say where we’d be without you.  I love you from the wooded hills and humid creeks, to the windy prairie and tall mountains. Through everything, I love you.  #happyaniversary
Swipe through—> These cactus and cross earrings are both on a little Instagram/Facebook sale! Each pair is $35.  Message to purchase! ♢ Hammered copper with sterling silver ear wires ♢
I’m in awe that this beauty is still hanging around! But hey, I can’t complain, because that just means I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying it for the last few months! DM me or leave a comment if you’re interested in a discount on the Seraph Wing Ring (size 7.5)! 🖤
Getting ready for shows, I’ve realized, is more about bulk— doing a whole lot of simple pieces and a lot of repetitive pieces. As much as I love the energy and meeting so many people at shows, the preparation drains me. My heart lives somewhere else—far, far away from repetition. . I am so excited, as I finish up gathering all the parts for my new torch, to get back to the slow grind of deep creation. .. ... .. .. ... .. .. ... .. .. #workinprogress #workinprocess #wip #silversmithing #silverjewelry #liverofsulfur #earringsofinstagram #behindthescenes #earringstyle #earringlove #earringaddict #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #opthandmade #progresspic #howthingsaremade #twomedicinesilver #makermovement #ladysmith #sistersmith #jewelrymaking #jewelryartist #creativeprocess #creativeideas
How do you all feel about mismatched turquoise? Are you more of a “give me all the turquoise,” or do you prefer your shades to match? Leave a comment—let me know! And can you guess which I am 😆?! . P.S. Please enjoy my 3rd trimester swelling and hairiness from now till October... I know I will 😒😂 . . . . . #twomedicinesilver #givemealltheturquoise #turquoiselove #turquoiselover #turquoiseobsession #turquoiseoverdiamonds #turquoisejewelry #turquoisering #silverandturquoise #turquoisebracelet #8mine #ringoftheday #braceletoftheday #ooakjewelry #jewelryaddiction #sterlingsilverjewelry #handcraftedjewelry #opthandmade #themountainsarecalling #montanalife #montanamoment #montanagram #chooseadventure #silversmith #silversmithing #ladysmith #riojeweler
I’ll be slowly adding all my inventory to the shop throughout the weekend and coming week, so stay tuned! . The studio is getting a bit of reorganization over the weekend, as I accommodate for my new torch set up👩🏻‍🏭!! . I had to limp my little, old micro butane torch through, but I’m happy to say the revenue I made from the rodeo has allowed me to FINALLY purchase some regulators and tanks for my actual jewelers torch 🎉 . Maybe I might even find a table to get my polishing lathe up and running, too... keep your fingers crossed and pray to the thrift store gods for me! . .. . .. . #roystonturquoise #royston #roystonribbon #turquoisebracelet #turquoiseandsilver #turquoisejewelry #turquoiseobsession #sterlingsilverjewelry #bohojewelry #flowerjewelry #silvercuff #twomedicinesilver #westernjewelry #westernfashion #madeinmontana #handmademovement #shopsmallsaturday #meetthemaker #opthandmade #heirloomquality #lastforever #jewelrylovers #jewelryartisan
Today is the LAST DAY for my flash sale— everything is listed in the highlights section on my profile!  Send me a message if there is more than one piece you’re thinking about, and we will figure out a 🔥🔥 deal! Plus, split pay is still available during the sale!  I think that’s all I’ve got for ya this morning, other than to enjoy this flashback to colder mountain days 🖤
I think chrysoprase and sterling go well with anything, but they look pretty dang good with a crisp, white vintage Pendleton 🙌
Flash Sale happening in my stories right now! DM to purchase! Prices are good through Friday, the 12th (living in my highlights on my profile too). Once the weekend hits, I’ll be posting them on the website at full price, so get em while they’re hot! Shipping will be $4, and as long as it’s up, it’s available! . Beautiful photo credit to my father-in-law 🖤 . . . . . #twomedicinesilver #jewelryaddict #jewelryobsessed #jewelryobsession #handcraftedjewelry #riojeweler #cowgirlstyle #cowgirlfashion #westernjewelry #westernfashion #silverjewelry #silversmith #turquoisejewelry #madeinmontana #montanamade #horsesofthedayy #horsesofinsta #montanamoment #flashsale #jewelrysale #jewelrysales #metalsmith
Got cuffs? ✨✨ On a little family vacation for the 4th, so the shop will have a slow trickle of product updates next week!
I’m taking the day off today to allow myself to simply be. This weekend was a pretty good culmination to some weeks of hard work, but my body is rejecting it. Sleep in what feels like negative hours, the heat, and the granola bars did me in. I’ll be back tomorrow to start sharing all that I have available, so until then 😴 . .. . .. . #montanalife #montanagram #dayofrest #creativepreneur #creativepreneurs #supportsmallshops #silversmithing #silverjewelry #ooakjewelry #twomedicinesilver #jewelrydesigner #handcraftedjewelry #landscape_love
Come see me today and tomorrow in downtown Augusta, Montana. Stick around for the rodeo and all the other celebrations too—I hear it’s pretty dang good 😉 . . . . . #twomedicinesilver #augustamontana #augustarodeo #rodeo #rodeotime #silverjewelry #westernstyle #montanalife #montanagram #madeinmontana #silversmithing #riojeweler #ooakjewelry #necklaceoftheday #necklacelover #ringoftheday #turquoiseoverdiamonds #turquoiselove #cowgirlstyle #wildrags #cowgirlfashion
The design for my Wild Rag Slides (aka silk scarf slides) has been finalized! It was very important to me to design something that held its place, but could slide on and off easily. They have been tested on a few different weights of silk as well/ There will be a few of them hitting the shop early July, but I hope these will be an integral part of Two Medicine Silver’s inventory for years to come! . .. . .. . .. #wildrag #wildrags #silkscarf #silkscarfs #scarfslide #twomedicinesilver #longlivecowboys #cowgirlstyle #cowgirls #cowgirlfashion #westernstyle #westernfashion #westernlifestyle #westernlife #madeinmontana #montanamade #opthandmade #sterlingsilver #jasperjewelry #silversmithing #cowgirlchic #neckswag #cowboyart #cowboystyle #cowboygear
I thought I’d just share a quick tool tip— if you saw my story update, I had a necklace with an unsoldered jump ring. In order to fix it, I had to remove the stone, which has always been the worst experience for me. I’ve tried a few different tools in the past, and I always end up with a mangled piece of scrap and a scratched stone. . The latest though, AND WINNER, is a No.11 blade scalpel! It’s a little scary working with such a sharp blade, but patience (and paying attention!) is the name of the game. It’s thin enough to actually get between silver and stone with minimal damage to the bezel. A little fixeroo to the jump ring, and a quick sand and polish and she’ll be looking good as new again! . . . . #tooltips #metalworking #howto #silversmith #silversmithing #metalsmith #metalsmithing #metalsmithsociety #metalsmiths #behindthescenes #jewelryrepair #fixit #ladysmith #sistersmith #sharetheknowledge #buildcommunity #communityovercompetition
Well, at least I have one of these beautiful Montana Agate necklaces to share with you today! The second one has to go back under the knife tonight, as one jump ring decided it wasn’t ACTUALLY soldered closed 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ Also, if you look closely, you can see some mountains behind that beautiful stone! . .. . .. . #montanaagate #montanalife #montanamountains #choosemountains #outdoorlifestyle #necklaceoftheday #riojeweler #ladysmith #necklacedesign #simplenecklace #necklacelover #ooakjewelry #handmademarket #opthandmade #twomedicinesilver #jewelryartist #jewelrylovers #madeinmontana #sterlingsilverjewelry
A couple of the copper and sterling earrings I’ll have at the Augusta rodeo. Will I be seeing anyone there? It’ll be our first year here, but I’m told it’s a pretty good celebration 🖤 . .. ... .. . #copperjewelry #copperearrings #mixedmetals #mixedmetaljewelry #riojeweler #twomedicinesilver #southwesternjewelry #westernstyle #cowgirlstyle #cowgirlfashion #westernfashion #rodeofashion #rodeogirls #earringstyle #earringfashion #handmademovement #opthandmade
