I'm not sure if I was always destined to make jewelry , or wether it was deliberate avoidance of doing something more academic, whichever, I love making, and it's a thrill when other people love what I've made.
I mostly sell through galleries and craftfairs here in the U.K. So it is exciting for me to show my work internationally
