Profile Information

Jewelry Designer
A little about me (so that you know I am a real person and not a spammer!)
I live, breathe, and dream jewelry. Jewelry is my passion. I discovered my calling at age 15 and have pursued it vigorously for the past 38 years, since 1970. I am fortunate to work with a small group of talented and dedicated artisans who assist me. I proudly work in "Old World" techniques with a minimum of modern tools and equipment. Each piece is handmade to "look and feel" as though it was excavated from an archaeological site. My focus is on originality, quality workmanship and personal service.

The things I like most about the Sarasota/Manatee area
The Arts.
My Interests & Hobbies
My second passion is cooking. I cook outdoors while we work. The smoker may be smoking, the buried cast iron pot may be cooling down, or the cast iron stoves may be fired up. Cooking is an all day event ... a creative event and an art form. It requires a "vision" to get started. Next there is planning, gathering materials, executing techniques, and then harvesting the results....enjoy!

Check out this clasp. Selling to jewelry makers can be a good supplemental income. This came from a Facebook link.

I had done jewelry only for 4yrs on and off through Middle and High school years; (I was lucky to have a teacher avail. to me that could teach that and many other mediums)and dabble with it now and then since. Most of the things I've done since have been with hemp or non precious metals. slowly getting the equipment together $$$ you know.My skills well as far as that goes well its a time thing . I like your style especialy the hasps. ( Very Stout )
