Tenth + Buttercup: The Beginning

It all started when I ditched my job. Classic story–I was miserable. I felt overworked, under appreciated and like I’d lost a part of my soul.

A college course catalog showed up in mailbox. As I flipped through it, I couldn’t believe how many classes piqued my interest. I became obsessed with wanting to learn new things. I signed up for classes. Lots of classes.

The courses varied in subject and spanned 3 different institutions. I took Voice-Over: Learn to Find Your Inner Voice, Introduction to Sustainability, 3D Modeling, Gemology, Human Centered Design and An Introduction to Digital Fabrication. Before I knew it, I was pretty much a full time student. And I was happy.

One day it hit me. For my homework, I could render a 3D model of a ring that could be digitally printed, thereby combining the assignments and knowledge from 3 of my classes.

…and that’s when I fell in love with jewelry design.

    You probably already know some of the work I've done for others. I've been designing behind the scenes creating designer perfume packaging, candles and even yogurt. I wanted to design a brand I could call my own so I created Tenth + Buttercup.
