I have always been a crafty person (basket weaving, mosaics and painting), but nothing ever truly held my attention long enough to say “ok… this is what I want to do for the rest of my life… this is what I thoroughly enjoy creating”. Then glass, metal and clay came into my life.
My journey with jewelry started several years back when, out of a love for all things glass, I started taking glass blowing and lampwork bead classes. I didn't fully realize my passion for making jewelry until I attempted (successfully) to make the love of my life, Ted, a Chainmaille bracelet one Christmas. I absolutely fell in love with making Chainmaille... the tediousness of putting the rings together (unsoldered*) as well as the awesome results of a finished piece. Ted and I both got caught up in making jewelry after that, both chainmaille and non, and continued learning other processes such as welding, making polymer…
