Dearest beadinggem, I was expecting the lovely Celtic turquoise earrings and necklace to take two weeks since you live in Canada near Niagra falls. Imagine my surprise when they showed up here in Santa Cruz California in 5 days. I absolutely love them!! Your craftsmanship is elegant and I just know I will treasure them for years to come. I appreciate your one on one time with me via email as we have come to become friends as I pick your brain full of knowledge in the jewelry business. Thank you so much! I am looking forward to your tutorial on how to make the very same jewelry you made for me. Hugs from the beach, Kitty P.S I love your blog also and highly recommend it to those just starting out in the jewelry business looking for advice and skill!
I have always enjoyed creating things having inherited my creativity genes from my mother and my grandmother. While I was growing up, I learned how to sew and knit. I also drew and did a number of crafty things.
Then in 2003, I finally started learning how to make jewelry and never looked back. There is something deeply satisfying about making jewelry. It's a never ending path of discovery and design with many delightful deviations along the way.
I started off with bead work then moved into chain maille and wire work, always striving to design something unique. I rarely repeat a design because the next idea is always so much better!
In 2007, I started my blog initially to showcase the work of students who attend my jewelry making workshops. It grew into so much more - a place where I can share this passion with others.
