• How did you get started designing and creating jewelry?
    About 16 years ago I saw something I wanted, but I didn't like the price of it *at all*! I said to myself, "I can make that!"

    So the next week I went to a craft store and bought what I thought I would need. I had no clue what I was doing, but I came home with some beads, three pairs of pliers, wire, crimps, and a lot of determination.

    Somehow, with a lot of fussing and cussing, I managed to put the thing together. It looked passably like the item I wanted, but didn’t behave like it.

    Altogether, I must have taken that little item apart and put it back together at least a dozen times over the next year. I still have it somewhere in my collection. - Return to questions
