Cathy Jones' Profile

About

Ever since I can remember I loved to make things with my hands. I sewed my own clothes, made quilts, painted pictures and so on. After teaching 1st grade for 15 years I decided to move closer to what I love to do and began teaching middle school art. How creative our youth is!!! At the same time, I had a flourshing business showing my handpainted clothing at art fairs.
Suddenly I decided that designing jewelry would be fun. And it is!!! I sold my jewelry at the same art fairs. Competition in jewelry is tough because so many people make jewelry so I decided to open a business selling supplies for jewelry making. And thus filigreeandme.com was born. I travel to bead shows from Seattle to Tucson with with my brass stampings that I personally patina to rich greens.
I've made so many samples for ideas that I decided I need to open a shop on Etsy where I could sell my jewelry.
