Everything about this tiny piece of art and this shop is too perfect for words. I had a great experience with contacting the shop and shipping couldn't have been better. The ring is just amazing... Thank you for sending in such a lovely package 😊!

About

Buddy's Story

I feel very fortunate to say that my passion is also my profession, though a lot of things have brought me to this point. When I was seven years old I started taking art lessons, and I quickly found that I was drawn to creating small-scale, detailed drawings. My favorite tool for years was a fine tip sharpie: thoughtful decision making, meticulousness, and colliding intersections of the minute forming larger ideas or emotions expressed in a design or image.

Years later, I took a trip that would illuminate for me what was really important in life and set the path for me to become a professional artist. In 2007, I was fortunate enough to go to Spain, Ireland, Netherlands, Germany, and New Zealand. Before I took off, my roommate gave me a wire wrapped Labradorite pendant and my sister gave me a Journal. The pendant never left my neck and I wrote in my journal every day.

Through traveling and journaling, I was able to view my life with a new lens; recognizing that my happiest moments were while I was creating art and hiking.

In 2008, Wire Wrapping became my favorite artistic medium and I spent countless hours practicing and seeking out the best gems and minerals. I pulled back into all those years of experience I spent working with tight, precision drawings and transferred it into my Wire Wrapping designs. Even now, I still seem to be pushing my art to get smaller and more detailed as time goes by. My most recent acquisition was a microscope which has opened up a whole new realm of possibilities.
