The Story of the Frisky Peddler

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… oh wait, this is not a science fiction story. It is the real-life story about the inspiration that prompted me to open my online Etsy store.

And this is how it begins. In December 2013 I found myself in the recovery room after having surgery to remove an acoustic neuroma, a benign brain tumor, from my head. The procedure was successful and I am back working full time at my day job. But during my seemingly endless recovery I discovered the art of jewelry making.

My sister came halfway across the United States to be my care giver for a time. She is an accomplished stained glass artist and also crafts jewelry. While she was tending to me she was working on a chain mail bracelet project. I was intrigued at how she could take a couple of tools and the small jewelry elements and make a beautiful finished product. She became my muse and encouraged me to consider taking up the craft. So I did and she helped me acquire my first tool set.

The learning curve was steep at first, but when I discovered the art of wire-wrapped jewelry I found my artistic passion! I adore all things “sparkly” and often use Swarovski crystals to give a piece that element. Natural stones and semi-precious gemstones also have a fond place in my heart so you will see them frequently here in my jewelry designs.

Well, that’s it. That is how it came to be that my Etsy store opened in August 2015. Enjoy your sojourn here and perhaps you will find a “sparkly” piece to delight in and take with you for yourself or as a gift for someone special.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by the Frisky Peddler shop!
