So what is "Style Without Sacrifice" you ask?
I am looking to bring you the customer and wearer of my art not only an interesting piece of handmade jewelry, but jewelry that brings you joy and has a connection with you, whether it be spiritually or intellectually. Never sacrificing your own personality to stay in style. My artisan jewelry can do that by being unique and classic at the same time.
I also want to bring to the jewelry and artist market, pieces of hand made jewelry that are created with the environment in mind as well as the customer, hence my "Style Without Sacrifice" line of recycled and reclaimed copper pieces of jewelry. I also make some jewelry pieces with reclaimed/recycled beads and findings along with new components. I like to mix it up as I wire wrap new and old to create modern jewelry. In fact one of my favorite things to do for a customer is to take found objects, or jewelry that was handed down to them and to recreate something very special that reflects the customers personality as well as the emotional attachment that is evoked by the objects and the design. I hand make every piece of jewelry myself and I strive to give you a wire wrapped piece that reflects you the customer as well as keeping true to my artistic vision.
My goal is to create handmade jewelry that is also affordable while keeping within all the other requirements. This can be the most challenging of all to keep within my mission. However I do so without sacrificing on quality by being the creator as well as the designer. I will never send out a piece that is not up to my standards of quality.
As a teacher my goal is no different, I am dedicated to teaching you how to create quality pieces and to help you expand your knowledge of wire work in a safe, relaxed and fun atmosphere.
