About

I love to create jewelry as an art, human connection is my goal. Expression is key to my creativity. Adornment of oneself is expression of oneself.

I am a mother of three children, two girls, one boy all now grown. Then there are my fur babies. Three dogs, all rescues, one cat also a rescue. Three Haflinger ponies. I have a love of animals but especially dogs and horses. I live in a small rural community in North Florida on a small acreage. I really enjoy nature and the outdoors and get much of my inspiration from it.

A few years ago I decided to go back to college and get a degree in something I love. I have an Associates of Art in Web Design and New Media from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California. While I get great pleasure in Graphic design, web design and photography; my real love is with Ceramics and Metal Work.

I found this out by taking a Metal smith and Hand Building Class at my local college and fell in love immediately. There is something about manipulating the metal to a functional and beautiful form that is very fulfilling. You can achieve such beautiful colors on metal by just applying fire.

Ceramics is the opposite of metal, it is soft and pliable and easily molded to your will and has wonderful stress relieving powers. If you ever have the opportunity to try it and you like making things with your hands try it! What do you have to lose?

I have found a way to combine my loves by using metal clay. This medium is easily manipulated and molded and can be combined with metal work. Metal clay has a binder mixed in with metal and when fired the binder burns away and leaves just the metal.

I use products from reputable manufacturers, and buy a lot of my supplies on Etsy from other store owners. I enjoy the shopping experience I get on Etsy and finding new products to incorporate into my designs.

I enjoy creating for others and would love to create that special piece for you or that someone special. If there is something you would love me to create for you please convo me with your request.

Thank you for visiting my shop and I hope you enjoy and come back again and again.
