I have loved making jewelry for as long as I can recall.
Remember those plastic friendship bracelets from summer camp? Yep, I made them. My first earring ‘design’ was a button glued to an earring post. I use the term ‘design’ very loosely. Years later came wire wrapping beads. Lots and lots of beads.
For the last few years I have been learning and trying to perfect my metalsmithing techniques. Needless to say, there is no perfect. A lot of interesting discoveries arise from what seems to be an abysmal failure.
I am having the most fun designing and creating today’s more complex designs crafted in silver, gold, copper, brass and bronze. I find it grounding, exciting and a fabulous way to spend the day!
All in all, it has been a fabulous journey.
Much like everyone else, I am a work in progress
