On Etsy since 2011

I am woman, hear me roar. Wait... WEAR me roar! ;)

I was listening to a presentation I had created for a client's business. I was a fan of a particular musical artist. I wanted to give back to the fans, and bam!, a brilliant idea came to me: make jewelry with the sound waves I see on my screen. Ok, so that's the short version...

I then had to figure out how to make jewelry. Yep, that's right, I had never made a piece of jewelry in my life (save for the gum wrapper bracelets and necklaces I made in my youth).

I knowwwww, right? Cray!

Ok, so I found metal clay and screamed aloud (I do that often; poor electronic equipment in my office and poor dog [get ready for his name: iPawd]) "I can do that! I can! I can!"

*tap tap tap*

::: pops popcorn :::

wait for it.........

I had to buy a ............... KILN.

Wait, what? A KILN?

If you guessed I'd never used a kiln before, you'd guess right.

I knowwwww, right? Cray!

Okay, so I bought the darn kiln, bought some metal clay, bought some basic tools, designed some pieces of jewelry in Photoshop, had rubber stamps made to make the pieces, and built a web site with HTML and PayPal.

Oh, you should've seen me learn how to use all these things. Just imagine a Dork Woman (I run into everything and say & do the dorkiest things!) trying to make a strip out of clay and attaching to the back of a rectangle clay piece. Or trying to cut a darned rectangle without a guide. Believe me, there was nothing that was a pretty sight. Nothing.

I opened three months later.

I knowwwww, right? Cray!

I made several sales immediately and got tons (really!) of love over my jewelry. I was so excited.

And scared.

I had no idea what I was doing.

But I persevered and just kept doing.

And pretended I actually knew what I was doing.

I got my first custom design commission, was a nervous wreck, and wanted to close my shop because I just knew everyone would discover that I was no artist[e] at all - just a seriously cray delusional woman. But...

I just acted like I knew what I was doing.

I knowwwww, right? Cray!

Fast forward and hundreds and hundreds and hundreds (ok, so probably thousands) of hours later, I learned how to use my kiln and work with almost every type and brand of metal clay out there.
I bought countless tools, organized my office differently, became comfortable calling my office my studio, calling one of my desks my bench, and most important, calling myself an artist[e].
I perfected a new method of creating with metal clay and wrote, edited, and produced a three hour instructional video guide to teach the method (and created The Coolest video trailer to promote it), moved from Twitter to Facebook, and tested & documented a new company's version of metal clay...
Oh, and read (hmmm, consumed eagerly would be more like it) everything I could from fellow artists, both struggling and revered.
I learned to sell on Amazon, eBay, and struggled with creating a brand new WordPress website for almost an entire year.
I just DID. Because I'm just like that.

In between all that, I mothered young men from all over my city because they discovered I could help them with mental health issues, dealt with continuing family crises, made new friends, loved new friends and my family ferociously, read a lot, listened to lots of music, visited WalMart way too often, built stuff (DIYer at work), fell off a ladder re-painting my ceiling, and...

Laughed and Cried. A Lot.

In the end, I discovered...

I'm more than a businesswoman. More than an artist[e]. More than a mama, wife, daughter...

I am WOMAN, WEAR me roar!

(and I can do anything I set my mind to do!)

I knowwwww, right? Cray!

There's really a long story I wanted to put here, but instead of boring you with that, please let me tell you that I am honored you are here taking a look at my jewelry offerings. They are made with love that's been on one incredible journey.

I love music. Always have. From the time my grandma placed me next to her on the piano bench and belted out Chopin (yep, she belted it out!) to now, I've surrounded myself with the sounds that take me to the good and safe place in my soul.

Wear the Music's specialty is taking the sound waves from audio and imprinting them into metal. It's not an easy process, nor is it a short one; however, owners of my jewelry tell me that they can feel the LOVE I put into each piece.

There's a story in every piece I make.

I know there's a story in you. Share it with me. And then wear it. It'll be good for your soul. :)
