Elemental Silver's Profile

About

Hi and welcome to my shop!

My name is Mindy & once upon a time I worked in the insurance industry, toiling away writing policies, making policy endorsements and having serious discussions with clients about their needs, protecting their property and families. Don't get me wrong, it is an honorable & rewarding (although sometimes thankless) career, but after about 20 years in the industry, I decided I wanted to make a career change... to a stay at home mom. I tried staying busy cleaning, cooking dinners, washing clothes, dusting and folding underwear. I must admit am not very good at it but I got things done.. most days. I definitely enjoyed volunteering and spending more time with my kids, two things near and dear to my heart. Don't get me wrong, being a stay at home mom is an honorable and rewarding (although sometimes thankless) job, but after a few months, I really needed something creative…

Don't get me wrong, being a stay at home mom is an honorable and rewarding (although sometimes thankless) job, but after a few months, I really needed something creative to do! I happened upon making fine silver jewelry and I was addicted! Not one of my creations are perfect, but neither am I. I love the imperfections, pits, uneven edges and creases. That is what makes them individual, one of a kind pieces & to me that its what makes them beautiful.

I have since given up my career as a stay at home mom and work at an elementary school helping out in PE. I love my job and my kids!

Please take a look around and if you have any questions or need additional pictures, just convo me and I will be happy to oblige!
