GypsyInMyBlood's Profile

About

I get my gypsy blood from my grandmother who was from Budapest. She adored costume jewelry, and gave me a bag of it which I treasure. I first made jewelry in a high school art class in the 1970s. That was my only experience with soldering; I may try it again...we'll see about that.

About 20 years ago I made beaded and wire wrapped jewelry for a while. And now I'm doing it again, this time creating necklaces and earrings in base metals and silver, with sari silk, wire, charms, tinkling bells, sparkly beads - whatever strikes my fancy.

Working at home is essential for me - my mother, who has moderate dementia, lives with me, making work outside the home impractical. Fortunately my home is nice, and I have 4+ acres of quietude in which to work and enjoy the Florida sun.

I am also on Etsy…
