Hi! I’m Ashley. I'm the owner and maker here at Valley of Salt. I come from a long line of strong, artistic women and just like them, I'm passionate about creating art. I picked up a torch for the first time last year. While practicing the ancient art of silversmithing, a spark of excitement and creativity was ignited and now those flames cannot be contained.
Making "wearable art" has become the perfect outlet for me to share myself with others. I have spent hours at my bench working and perfecting my craft so that I might be able to present offerings that I could be proud of. As a self-taught silversmith, I still have so much to learn but I hope that one of my pieces resonates with you, connects with you, and brings you joy.
