It's been a long time since I've been on WC... just got side tracked! But here I am now and it was very interesting reading about all of you... and some beautiful jewelry for sure...
Anyway, I'm not sure I can remember when I started doing jewelry... but I do know that there is many chapters to the book of jewelry making and I've done or tried most of them. I guess the things I do the most is "Stitching and metal repurpose"... meaning I make silverware jewelry.
Sorry about the photo being so big... I don't know how to size it !
I am a jewelry teacher for South Florida State College (Community Ed Dept). The college owns an old vintage hotel in great condition and still used as a hotel and many of the college offices are in it along with dorms. Six artists group together and have a gallery and class room in the hotel thru the college... it works out great! We sell and teach ... we have been doing this for 5 years now.
Anyway, I also have a studio about 2 miles from my home that I work in and teach Art Marketing Classes in... I only do two a season so I'm not working all the time.
Have I bragged enough ??? I'm just so proud and it has been years getting here ! Sorry about hogging so much space...
