Jan Raven's Profile

About

I am a self-taught artist with a deeply felt need to work with my hands. My previous career as a self-employed carpenter fulfilled this need for 13 years, but now I focus solely on making a selling my jewelry. I enjoy working with wire, and take particular satisfaction in producing fine pieces without using solder or adhesives. I use only my hands, small hand tools, a butane torch, and a bench vise to produce my pieces.
