Cat lady by day, jewelry maker by night.
Prairie Empire Jewelry began as a distraction while I was finishing up grad school. After graduating with an MFA in Sculpture in 2012, I decided to focus more on jewelry-making in my small apartment studio.
I usually have a loaf of bread in the oven while I work away in the studio.
