Jim Hayes is a talented silversmith who also cuts, shapes, and polishes the stones in his eye-catching designs. His unique jewelry showcases the beauty of nature, and all are made by hand.

Jim Hayes has a love for natural stones. He uses stones found In Oregon, cuts, and sets his stones in a sterling silver setting with his maker’s hallmark. Jim Hayes has been designing and crafting jewelry for thirty-plus years. Started at the Saturday Market in Portland, eventually expanding into The Real Mother Goose, and later selected a few galleries in the Northwest to represent his work. He lives around lots of water, so when a break is needed, he goes and sits by the river, meditating and pretending to be fishing.

“The Balance”
Acrylic on wood cradle

MARGA
 

With each coat of paint, whether watercolors, gouache, acrylics, or oil comes depth and motion…it’s exciting and satisfying to see my work evolve from one layer to the next. I love using odd tools to paint with….for instance, Some images in my whimsy collection are painted with a toothpick (I couldn’t find a small enough pallet knife) MARGA

Frank N. Bunny’s trying to escape the ants by balancing his tea cake on his head. His tea party is not going as planned. And the ants keep coming.”  Marga

My art training comes from watching and experimenting and then doing it repeatedly, exposing a little more of me, Marga, with every attempt. I love the movement of things… whether it’s the hair or feather on a bird’s head or the drooping of a flower’s leaf…I want to make my painting live and breathe. I read Bedtime Stories in Marga’s World for eight delightful years on KMUN radio. I wrote my own children’s story. This was stimulating and a great way to fuel my imagination for my art. MARGA

About Jim Hayes, silversmith:
I am fascinated with the materials I use to make jewelry. The silver, rocks, and minerals are full of the wonder of nature. It’s pretty cool that when I cut the stones I use in my work, the stones will tell me what they want.  
 


 Jim Hayes has been designing and crafting jewelry for more than forty years. He started out at the Saturday Market in Portland, Oregon. He then worked five years to expand into desired galleries throughout the Northwest, which included The Real Mother Goose, among others. Currently, his jewelry is now carried by selected galleries around the country.

Meditation time is crucial to me. I live around lots of water, so when a break is needed, I go sit by the river, meditate and pretend to be fishing. I also love to garden.Jim Hayes

Shop Small Business. Shop Local. It’s a good fit.
