Five years ago, I signed up for a basic jewelry class. I had always been curious about the craft, and just wanted to learn a cool hobby.
Since then, I’ve been hooked, and jewelry making is now my go-to stress reducer. I love the idea of creating accessories exactly the way I want, whenever I want. The fact that others find them attractive enough to want to buy is a huge bonus.
When I watch television, I’m usually paying as much – if not more – attention to the jewelry actors are wearing as the dramas they convey. The styles I like are the ones that grab your attention. It doesn’t matter what era they came from. I love the elaborate neck pieces worn by all the warriors in Apocalypto as much as the necklaces the women from shows like The Tudors, The Borgias and Spartacus wear.
I also like flipping through fashion magazines and designing pieces that I would want to wear with the garments I like. I’m pretty much a necklace girl, and do earrings too, because I know how hard it can be to find the perfect match.
I usually combine techniques, so you’ll see plenty of pieces that incorporate wire, sewing or more elaborate stringing designs. I pretty much like to mix it up, and I feel like I’m just getting warmed up!
