Welcome to CM Sterling

Thank you for your interest in my hand-fabricated sterling silver store.  I am Cheryl Malone, the owner and sole proprietor of CM Sterling, LLC.  Like so many jewelry artists, I did not start out as a metal smith and my journey to get here has been an adventure. During my early years as a bench scientist, I loved designing and carrying out experiments, then analyzing the data. But science did not give me an outlet for artistic expression and so I began exploring several artistic media; including painting, drawing, and fabric art. While I enjoyed those creative experiences, they provided little opportunity to exercise my scientific and analytical skills.  Metal smithing began as an intellectual endeavor and I quickly accumulated an extensive personal library on metal smithing, jewelry design, and jewelry fabrication. I soon found myself spending countless hours studying and dreaming about jewelry making. Now with my own studio, I am living that dream in earnest. What I had not anticipated was how rewarding I would find this art form.  Upon completion of my first piece, I was struck with the realization that metal smithing beautifully combines both my scientific skills and my drive for artistic expression.  So, I am now back at the bench doing something I love.
