I have been making jewelry for almost 20 years, but I have never had the chance to give 100% of my devotion, energy, or time toward building my brand. I am now at a place where I am willing to lose it all to gain everything.
While I am in my studio, I create one of a kind jewelry pieces or art objects out of sheet, scrap and raw semi precious and precious metals. I love using raw diamonds and other various beads when applicable. I also like to take an old "something" and rework it into something new... Working on my jewelry, telling my stories through metal, and being back in my studio has been extremely fulfilling.
My last gallery show was in 2008. I would love nothing more then to have one show before the end of this year (just in time for the holidays) and at least 3 gallery shows in 2013. I believe that the time is now. I have the ideas, I have the time, I have the space to do the show, I am just lacking the funds to pull it all together. I know with your support this dream can become a reality.

Risks and challenges
Risks and challenges: I keep asking myself what are these risks and challenges... What truthfully keeps coming to mind is "no risk no reward"...
But in all seriousness some of the risks & challenges I might face are:
my part time job may ask me to work more hours during the day which would mean I would need to stay up later into the night producing my jewelry
the hardware stores may run out of the tanks I use for producing my jewelry and I may need to drive outside of my comfort zone to buy more
any materials that I am ordering for the production of my pieces may be on back order causing a delay in my ability for production
making sure I create the perfect universal size fit for my bracelet reward and finding it is either too big or too small
And last... going up against holiday postal delivery to make sure everything I offer for December delivery gets to people on time
I have really thought through all of the rewards I have offered and have kept the numbers available to the minimums they are so I can ensure fulfilling all of my rewards and still being able to produce a nice body of work for my holiday gallery showLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
