I have been making jewelry for 10 years and selling online since February 2012. I have been buying jewelry from other artists for most of my life. Finally in 2003, I decided I wanted to learn how to make jewelry myself. I took a beading and wire wrapping class and I was hooked. I try to constantly upgrade my skills by taking more classes in silversmithing and metal clay. It is a journey but one that I love. I never knew there were so many gorgeous stones out there until I took up jewelry making. Now I feel like so many stones, so little time. I am married living in Las Vegas with two adorable fur babies.
