I'm not sure if it's in my maiden name... Goldschmitt, aka gold-smith? Or whether it's as simple as: jewelry is pretty and I want to make it. Whatever the case may be, jewelry is who I am. It's not a "job", it's part of me. If I'm not actually in the studio, I'm constantly thinking "jewelry". It's one of the first things I look at when I meet you. You're supposed to look someone straight in the eyes, I find myself looking at your earrings or necklace first.
This jewelry love affair started in 2001. I had just moved to Vail, CO. I was in the process of making a lot of changes: new friends, new job, I had a new lease on life. I wrote a poem, "Throwing Stars," about taking chances and making big changes. My new home was like pressing the "do-over" button.
Over the years my jewelry has morphed from beading to what is now my core jewelry…
