JoDene, Thank you so much for such a beautiful bracelet. I have no doubt my mother will love it. I especially love the way you designed the Grammy's Blessings charm. The bracelet has all her grandchildren on it and will be a wonderful reminder as to why she retired:). I appreciate your quick responses, excellent customer service and quality craftsmanship. Thank you again!

20 yrs ago, with the support of my handsome hubby, I quit my full time "real" job to stay home with our curly haired, now taller-than-me boy and 4 years later added a feisty, curly haired girl. I was always an artist and started doing murals and hand painted furniture to help out while I was home with them by just adding a play pen in the mix! Then 4 years ago, I decided to expand my creative opportunities and take a "forging metals" class. I chose the class I did because the teacher's motto was to "bring your creativity and have fun". My teachers name was Ed Brickman, a very accomplished jewelry artist, and his comment about me was that I was his "most enthusiastic student!" I do always try hard to make the best of each opportunity and never-the-less, I was completely hooked! My journey into jewelry has evolved on it's own since then and I now have a lovely little studio space in our house overlooking our backyard and the water.
Since our children are now teenagers we truly enjoy to hang out with, I wouldn't change a thing about choosing to be home working while they grew. I have since gone back to a "real" job selling real estate on the beautiful island I am lucky enough to call home, but I always look forward to my time in the studio.
I strive to build beautiful, original pieces and always try to give great customer service and I hope that you will enjoy my creations and see the happiness poured into each piece.
I thank you so much for taking time out of your day to read a little bit about me and my journey.....
Now go shop, would you please?!! : )
