Me, Myself, I:
I am a self taught artist that's been surrounding elements since childhood. I have attended art school for a short period of time only to of dropped out during a time of hardship and lack of car to drive because of a wreck that occured during hardship. Although I still don't attend and hope to someday return, I continue the greatest joy that is to every artist, creating. Among the jewelery that I make, which only started a not too distant time ago, I also: paint, draw, knit, produce hip hop beats, ceramics, draw, kusudama origami, friendship bracelets, hula hooping. I can't help it, I like to do it all! There will be other things I'm sure I'll pick up as life goes by. As well as creating art, I love MUSIC, reading, watching all kinds of different movies and shows that will peak my interest, go on car rides and have conversation, dance, as well as other things. I just like to have fun!

I have opened Surrounding Elements in hopes to pass on the love that I have for every single piece I create.

About My Work:
I started wire wrapping in October 2010 after my boyfriend gave me cup full of beautiful river rocks. I remembered I had some wire from an art store adventure that was never used and it's gone from there. Every piece of jewelry is original, and hand crafted by me, as well as the stones and feathers personally picked out by me and by my vision of beauty. I put my heart into each piece and strive to bring out the beauty in each stone. I sit there with my rocks and let them call me to work them, and then just go with the flow of the wire once I start. I never have a set image of what I want to do with any of the stones. You'll notice that I try to work with the formation of the stone, so as to not let the wire outshine the stone. I try to let the piece be a whole, not just good wrapping or a nice rock. Most of my pieces are dual sided, which will give you 2 for one. The feather pendants are hand-crafted and given individual flair as well. All pendants will come with your choice of color of leather cord or a choice of thin or thick hemp cord.

Materials:
Hand picked stones (mostly of the semi precious and lesser tastes; from river rocks to turquoise), feathers of many different birds, a huge selection of beads (wooden ones being mostly used with the feather pieces), silver plated wire, gold plated wire, sterling silver and 24k gold.

Custom Work:
Willing to do customs, contact me if you're looking for something.

Policies:
Please refer to my policies page for all other important information.

The Future:
I hope to bring other sides of my talent to etsy, which will include my art and knitting, among other things I love creating.

Notes:
Always feel free to convo me and ask any kinds of questions that you have.
