My name is Ildiko and I am a self-taught silversmith.
Ildiko is a hungarian name which means "warrior princess". Perfect for the girl who hammers the heck outta each slick piece of silver and is particular about its craftsmanship!
The moment I first picked up a torch to melt silver I realized I was born to solder.
Each piece starts out as a ribbon of raw sterling silver that I anneal, shape, solder, hammer and polish to perfection.
