Profile for ShapedByHand
I always start out by saying I am a hippie at heart. I love nature, animals, and I have a free spirit. I absolutely love baking and cooking and I aspire to one day own my very own bakery and maybe, eventually, a restaurant! There is so much I want to learn and be able to do and I strive everyday to gain as much knowledge as possible. Not only in applied works such as art and cooking, but also in my relationships and life lessons.
~ My Jewelry ~
My jewelry is made with a love for creativity and a desire to provide each person who purchases one of my pieces with a one of a kind design. Most of my jewelry is made using various wiring materials such as sterling silver, gold and copper. Wire is my favorite medium to work with because it is so malleable but also stubborn and lends itself to endless possibilities. Wire working allows for me to create truly unique pieces.
I am partial to semi-precious stones Swarovksi crystal and Czech glass beads. I hammer a majority of my pieces because I enjoy the contrasting texture it provides and the rigidity that adds to a design.
