Gina Gonzalez's Profile
Ever since I was a little girl, I have always been fascinated with art and making things. I come from a very creative background. My mom is always making things around the house, decorating and recently she has started making jewelry. My grandfather made Victorian dollhouses, both of my grandmothers sewed, and my father was a painter and a graphic designer. It’s in my blood to be creative.
I got into making jewelry when I was about 15. My mother brought me to a bead store near my house, and I immediately fell in love with all of the stones and beads they sold. I wanted to learn how to do everything! The next weekend, I went back and applied for a job and was hired on the spot. The owner taught me basic bead stringing, wire-wrapping and knotting. Before long, I became the main instructor for all of the jewelry classes the store offered. I loved it!…
