About

A Forest of Art Inspired By Nature

When I was 16 I started working at a store called {The Bead Mine}
After school I would take the bus into town, get dropped off and then head to work. It was there that I learned that I had a passion in designing jewelry. It was the coolest shop. The employees that worked there designed pieces to be sold in the shop. Customers would come in and buy our handmade pieces but they also had to opportunity to make and design their own jewels. We would then help them finish their designs and they would be on their way. I loved that job. Thinking about it now I'm so lucky to have been a teenager and find my purpose in life.

I took my first metal smith class in 2012. I really just wanted to expand my art and learn new jewelry techniques. I absolutely love it. At almost 30 years old, I've finally become confident enough to consider myself a real jeweler. It was 13 years ago that I started this journey and I plan on spending another 13 years {and more} creating, designing, hand crafting jewelry for anyone who would want to wear my pieces. I am so truly blessed to say that The Turquoise Forest is my full time job and that I am my own boss. For any of you aspiring jewelry artists out there, my advice to you is:
Never, ever give up doing what you love to do.
Keep fighting for it.
Each day stay positive and find ways to give away.
When things get tough and your not sure if you should keep going, remind yourself why you started in the first place.
Be patient & trust your journey.
Thank you all for your ever growing support, kind words & love. I am forever grateful.
Much Love & Light,
Angela
