I'm jenn the cultivator behind j.Nic Designs & the hoarder behind j.Nic Loft - http://www.etsy.com/shop/jNicLoft .

I like to name inanimate objects (my truck's name is Betty. She's a Ford). I will own a Ford tractor one day whom I will lovingly call Henry. My favorite old cedar tree is named Cliff & you may recognize him by the little sprigs of him I include on the packages I send to you =).

I have an aversion to the capital letter "j". It looks too much like a fish hook - eww.

I'm known for having a completely spoiled rotten Silkie Bantam named Weezie that occasionally helps me out in the studio.. yes I have a chicken that spends a lot of time indoors with me ;).

I love to eat raw cookie dough & I obsess over the weather (though not necessarily at…

And a couple of technical things you might be interested in.. I studied metalsmithing through the University of Georgia & also spent a 5 day workshop retreat studying metalsmithing techniques at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC - which I highly recommend! If you ever get the chance to visit the Folk School do it!

And more personal stuff..
I was born & raised in a small town in northwest Georgia. My parents, grandparents, great grandparents & my great great grandparents (& probably even further back) are all from Georgia & Alabama so I guess that makes me a pedigreed southern gal.
I graduated from the University of Georgia where I have an associate's degree in Art & a Bachelor's degree in Science & I live (pretty simply) & work (pretty hard) on a sleepy little 5 acre mini farm in... you guessed it... Georgia. Oglethorpe County to be exact.
I work from a little loft studio where I've snugly situated my workbench in a window dormer that overlooks my neighbor's 500 acre cow pasture.
And I share this quiet little piece of the countryside with a lot of furry & feathery critters that I refer to collectively as "people". Probably because I carry on quite a few conversations with them throughout the course of a day. I'll introduce you to them - they are: Debbie my sweet little rescue mutt (whom I sadly lost after 12 years on Thanksgiving day 2013. To say I was devastated would be an understatement). I now have Denver another rescue mutt (actually think he may be a full blooded pittie) that I adopted kind of spur of the moment from the euthanasia list at a nearby shelter, Alley my rotten shelter kitty, Squiggy Jackson an orange lovebug of a kitty, Hanna a little grey ball of kitty terror who was abandoned on my little farm (boo on the people who threw her out!), 3 horses - Mandy & King whom I've been lucky enough to have for the last 24 years (or do they have me? I forget how that works) & now Molly a sweet little rescue horse that I adopted from the GA Dept of Agriculture (that's her in my profile pic), 2 ornery African Grey Geese - Golly & Madison, & 8 chickens (which of course includes my spoiled silkie) - Weezie, Mona, Monique, Dolly, Loretta, Emmy Lou, Hope & my rooster Gerry. Sadly my 2 goats, who were twins & featured in my profile pic for years passed away within months of each other. And I also keep & care for another rescue horse, Scout, for my boyfriend's grandson. So the "people" & I thank you kindly for your support! We'd love to see you again so do come back!
