History of the BIZ...

I have been actively making jewelry for 13 years. It stuck my fancy when I was but a young earthling. I sat for hours upon hours making beads out of Fimo and forming components out of paperclips.
Growing up in the mountains, we would endure crazy snow storms, the likes of which would instantaneously throw one into survival mode. We would sometimes go three weeks without power or gas which meant no heat, no light, no way of getting anywhere because we'd be literally "snowed in." I had to find ways to occupy my time... especially because in cases like these, school would be canceled.
One of my favorite memories was during a particular instance like this. School had been canceled for a week, and the storm was not letting up. We were stuck inside, because outside it was a blizzard. Even if one wanted to leave, there was no way. It was just too dangerous.
We were out of power, there was no heat. Luckily the snow packed around our house made for decent insulation.
My mother made a fire, lit our gas stove, cooked, and provided me with a kerosene lamp, and I sat and made jewelry for hours out of paperclips and needle nose pliers.

I still have the piece I made from that very day. I still carry that sweet feeling with me into every piece I make.
It just goes to show that jewelry is not just sentimental for the wearer, it's sentimental for the artist who made it as well. I hope that you enjoy what you see, and know that in each and every piece, there was a lot of love that went into the making of it.

Thank you, and enjoy!
