I began making jewelry for myself while I was in college, and then actually learned how to do things the right way when I got a job in a bead store after I graduated. I worked there for six years, and I learned so much.
I made a lot of jewelry on my own time as well, and sold it through a couple of galleries. Life took me in other directions though. For a while. Then it brought me back. I took some metalsmithing classes in early 2017, and I’ve been combining the old with the new.
