Mondän Knitted Jewelry Designs

God gave you two hands - use them!

I have been artistically inclined from an early age and art was always my favorite subject in school. As a teenager I was creating pencil drawings including fashion designs, then I learned pottery and still have fun with it and even teach pottery classes in our local school district.
Later in life I became a more hands-on artist making decorative objects such as wreaths, my napkin dolls, and more pottery. When I met my husband we became passionate about photography and even built a small portrait business together.
Mondän was born from a school project my daughter was involved in a few years back and also teaching jewelry making at her school. After working with the kids, I really took a liking to the technique and discovered new materials and designs and started to create wonderful pieces of jewelry that I wanted to share with the world. Later I married my knitting with my other love pottery, and started to incorporate ceramic elements into the jewelry designs as well. I believe that you have to love what you make and sell - and I am certainly my "best client" and wear my own creations almost every day. I think when you are passionate about what you do, it's contagious; your work carries your spirit within. Pair that spirit with my German work ethic and workmanship and you will have products that are of an heirloom quality.
