Childhood memories....

I started my shop a couple of years ago when I received my grandparents lapidary equipment. I spent many an hour as a kid in their garage learning how to shape and polish stones. It always fascinated me how we could find a rock and turn it into something unimaginable when seen in rough form.

My main desire for beginning the metal smith journey was to take a cabochon that my grandmother had made years ago and make her a necklace. She had always loved working with stones but her eyes and hands in recent years have prevented her from doing so. This necklace was intended to bring back the memories and excitement for her. Seeing her face when I presented her with it made the learning curve all worth while.

Realizing that making this pendant was really enjoyable and that I picked up the processes fairly quickly I decided I would make a go of it and start making jewelry for sale. I like that fact that the possibilities are only limited by my imagination. I began taking a few classes and gathering equipment and now I work on it every chance I get.

    I am the owner/designer of Acklin Art Works. I have only really been making jewelry for the past two years. Working with stones with my grandparents as a kid has always made me want to become more proficient in the metal working aspect.
