Personal

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.

    Thanks for all of the great comments. Thanks Crystal Canary for your comment about the pictures. It took me a long time to figure out how to best capture the jewelry and show the details and the exact color. I bought a DVD on photographing jewelry and then read the manual that came with my camera. [...]

    Thanks for all the great comments! Yes, Copenhagen Statement, I do all the knotting myself by hand. It took a while to get the hang of it and it takes a lot longer to do than just stringing the beads but I really love the fluidity and how the necklaces drapes. I started out in life [...]
