About

I'm 29 years old, and I live in upstate NY with my husband and our 2 lovely kitties.

I got into making jewelry as more of a hobby than anything. At the time I was pursing a fine arts degree in the hopes of maybe becoming a teacher. My professors would always scold me for working too small and detailed, and not on huge canvases with huge brushes and huge designs. When I got a job as a bench jeweler almost 10 years ago, I knew that this was the medium for me. It's perfect.

The purpose of this Etsy shop way back when I first opened it, was to share my nose studs with other people, and to help me get established with my own jewelry set up at home. Most people don't realize how many tools are required for metal working, and just how expensive they are. I picked up what I could here and there, and thanks to all of you, I have a pretty decent set up.

So thank you so much for supporting the hand made movement, and supporting me as I make my way. It means a lot!
