Heather is amazingly talented and such a good person to work with. I would shop with her again without question!
It's a matter of sanity...
I am a hobby jewelry designer with a special interest in metalworking. I've been selling my designs on Etsy since 2012, when I decided that I wanted to have something in my life that wasn't "work". I picked up some wire and read some books, and my new hobby was born. I began making jewelry for friends and family, and welcomed them to challenge me with custom requests. I was winging it, and it felt GREAT. I was instantly addicted to the feeling of accomplishment when someone actually liked my creations. I decided to take some jewelry fabrication classes at a local studio, and after gaining a little bit of confidence and a lot of new metalworking skills, I decided to open my online shop. Etsy seemed like the perfect venue for Heather's Handcrafted Jewelry.
By day I am a Registered Veterinary Technician, working as a nurse manager in a fast paced emergency and referral hospital. While my day job does not allow much time for creativity, I spend many "vacations" taking metalworking classes and learning new techniques. I have turned my basement into a home studio, and at least one day a week, I shut out the rest of the world and spend hours in the studio learning and playing. While I LOVE the career I have chosen, I find that playing with fire and wielding a hammer is exactly what I need to unwind. I turn up the music and let go...no rules, no protocols, just creating from the heart. This is my therapy. It's my release. No matter how much I swear, and how scarred and bruised I am when I emerge from the studio, I come out HAPPY! I love to document my work from start to finish, as I want to show that everything is made by my hands. You can follow my creative process on my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/heathershandcrafted).
My style is a bit eclectic, which you can tell by the variety of jewelry styles that I create. I have always had a love for gemstones, and like to try to incorporate natural stones into my designs whenever possible. I draw inspiration from nature, and love to manipulate metal in different ways that still appear natural. I have yet to find my "niche" where jewelry fabrication is concerned, and I love learning new things so much that I doubt that I ever will. I don't want to be tied to one style. I want to walk into the studio and make what I feel. Everything I create is the result of something that I wanted to try...even if it is just one time. That makes every piece unique- truly one of a kind.
I am happy to consider any custom requests, and would love to help design a piece that is uniquely you- please just convo me with your ideas!
Around the web
I love to create rustic and earthy designs. I enjoy wire wrapping, but my true love is metalsmithing. My designs are a bit eclectic, and often never repeated. You can rest assured that all pieces are unique in some way.
