"I've always been the creative type, I have a BA in Visual Arts, but only discovered jewelry making in 2007. I started with simple beading, but quickly grew to love working with metal. I even took an introductory metalsmithing course instead of prenatal classes! I found etsy through my sister, and the rest is history."
"My dream is to be able to make jewelry full time while staying home with my kid(s), but right now, that isn't really an option. However, it's been quite an experience learning how to balance the running of a small business along with fostering my creative side, having a family and a full time job."
"I love having the freedom of being my own "boss", even for a little bit! I'm also constantly inspired to create new things to put out there into the handmade world. The Internet is a fantastic venue for showcasing talent and I'm happy to be a part of that. I've also been able to meet some amazingly talented people who create amazing things!"
