I love this job!

I spent many years as a medical practice administrator. Several years ago, the practice where I worked dissolved and I found myself out of a job in a very bad economy. I had always wanted to return to jewelry making, having dabbled in it a little bit during my college years. However, it seemed that whenever I had the time, I didn't have the money to invest in the equipment I needed, and if I had the money, I didn't have the time to devote to learning. When I lost my job, I suddenly had both!

I am entirely self-taught, and have had a wonderful journey from absolute rank novice to somewhere just north of there right now. The one thing I can say about this transition is that I love going to work every single day now, not just some of them! Learning a craft this way is very humbling - it teaches you patience and reminds you that there is a whole world of knowledge out there that you can acquire, if you are willing to work at it. Oh, and did I mention NO MORE SUITS! I can go to work in my sweats! How can you go wrong with that?

    I love working metals, and especially like the look of two different metals combined together in one design. This is a second career for me. I am entirely self-taught, both as a jewelry designer and as a metal worker.

You know how happy you feel when you find something that is just what you like - I'd like to take that feeling one step further for you. So, while I do carry some items as stock, I prefer to make your item just for you, so it is exactly as you want it to be. It just seems more special that way! In this manner, you can have the color, size, length, etc that you want - sort of like ordering your own birthday present! This means that it may take a few days after your order for it to ship. I am happy to do special custom orders- convo me and we'll put our heads together to make exactly the piece that you want!
