Jewelry making

Steve N. Lilly

I’ve joined creative forces with an accomplished metalsmith to create WV MountainEars, marketing our art to the public through appearances at Arts & Crafts festivals in the state and region.


I became a Tamarack: The Best of West Virginia artisan in 1993, making coin jewelry from vintage US silver coins. My initial works were primarily silver coin rings, and I added a line of coin earrings in the last few years. My skills and knowledge of coin art were passed down to me from my Dad, who was a Tamarack juried artisan, as well.
