Why Jewelry?

I have been making jewelry for as long as I can remember. As a kid, I would make rings out of wire and bracelets and necklaces from beads. I loved playing with my grandmother's jewelry and really enjoyed arts and crafts of any kind.

A few years ago, I started getting back into jewelry making and found it very therapeutic. I started sharing my designs on Instagram and even selling a few pieces at craft fairs and on Etsy. I even shared my passion by volunteering as a jewelry making class teacher at a local rehabilitation center for the elderly. 

Last year I changed careers and had to put jewelry making on hold. Now that the transition is behind me, I started crafting again and have been bustling with new ideas and designs. Now I would love to share my passion with you!

My Process

I love to experiment with all sorts of mixed media. I especially enjoy working with wire, clay and to hand paint my creations. I like molding and shaping clay, then adorning it with unique patterns using stamps or tools. I then coat the dried clay with various shimmering or pastel hues and apply the finishing touches that may consist of a cluster of Swarovski crystals or charms and findings. I also hand paint metal charms with patinas and then buff some of the paint off to create a distressed look. I then incorporate the charms into one of my unique designs.

Risks and challenges

I have been making jewelry for years and have been selling at local craft fairs and on Etsy so I have a pretty good idea of how much time to allow myself for meeting my April 2017 shipments goal.

I have most of the supplies on hand and can easily replenish them as needed. I will start fulfilling shipments in March.
