I love jewelry.. especially rings! (To date myself...My Dad nicknamed me Ringo before the Beatles were a band.. lol)
Since the end of 2011, I have been a structural design drafter by day and a bench jeweler by night. I am a completely self taught jeweler... I utilized Google, YouTube, and and a couple of really great books, which provided me with the knowledge and courage I needed to begin my new obsession...creating artisan/ art jewelry.
I use traditional silversmith techniques, as practiced through the ages. I am so totally hooked..I absolutely love designing and creating handcrafted jewelry... I wish there were more hours in the day... I still have SO much more to learn ... so many techniques I want to master... but I love it.
My jewelry is primarily made of 18 & 19 gauge...
