Carla Smith's Profile

About

I've been involved in all types of art most of my life. Making jewelry, however, came to me later in life as a way to cope with the sudden onset of a seizure disorder. It began as a way to challenge me to focus and concentrate on small tasks, and it has been so interesting to see how the brain process works. First, an inspiration for a design manifests in my head. Next I plan, prepare and produce it. And when it's finished, it's a thrill to have a bracelet come to life, sometimes turning out even better than I had thought possible! It continues to help me overcome a tremendous shock in my life. I still have a long way to go, and have many ups and downs, but I'm happy to say that I'm glad to be here at Etsy doing what I love, and I hope you find something in my shop that you love too! :)
