Sixteen years ago my partner and I sold our contracting business and I went into the arts full time. I headed to the closest art gallery and begged the welding instructor to teach me how to solder delicate silver. She complied and I was hooked! I traveled all over for workshops (still do) and classes....I just couldn't get enough. And now I teach basic silversmith techniques out of my studio.
I participate in juried craft shows, sell to galleries and have open studio time. A few years ago I was contacted by HGTV and appeared on an episode of That's Clever. What a truly unique experience. My dream is to own a gallery but I also like to travel, so the next best thing was to open an Etsy shop. Now I can travel to far away places looking for pretty gemstones, and vintage silver pieces for my repurposed/recycled jewelry collection, and still operate a shop. The mermaid and goldfish are my trademark pieces and best sellers at craft shows.
