Music into jewelry
I am a musician and a mother. When my children were small, I could not devote the hours needed on my horn without some sort of interruption - and demand for immediate attention. I became a very frustrated musician. So I picked up my beading and jewelry making, because I could pick it up and leave it at a moment's notice, and have the work not suffer. It was a way of staying creative without the frustration attached.
As the years go by, I become more enthralled with the materials, and new techniques, and inspired by others. I have taken classes in wire wrapping, photographing jewelry, and in different beading techniques. I have also started a faceting class and am working on a round and a square cut. I have taken a class in making cabochons and have finished two free-form cabochons which will be wire wrapped and made into pendants.
I enjoy embroidery, have recently taught myself silk ribbon embroidery, and am hoping to incorporate some embroidery into my jewelry.
There are many things that I would like to learn in this craft. My challenge is to find a way to truly express who I am.
Been making jewelry for twenty years, started as a small obsession and has steadily grown. Interested in colors and textures - enjoy playing with semiprecious stones, sea glass (naturally harvested), and metal.
