My passion is metal design. I am a lifelong artist. I live in
Of This Earth Jewelry
Kearney, NE. USA
I have been designing, creating and selling jewelry for over 7 years
now, driven by my love of natural stones and using fine silver,
copper and bronze. In addition to my own business, Of This Earth
Jewelry, I help Beads in a Box, a fund-raising project of Community
Action Partnership of Mid-Nebraska. I am located in Central Nebraska
where I live with my husband, four horse, my cats and my dog.

I handle the QC work, pick stones needed for jobs, and price
inventory and custom pieces. I am interested in all types of stones
Ruth A Crawford
Dallas, PA. USA
I have been making jewelry for about 7 years, started selling about
2 years ago. Not really what I would call successfully. Have found
my love to be wire which I find fairly easy to grasp, and metal
which is having a rather steep learing curve. None of my results are
predictable, even though some are pleasing. I find that I get
insight from talking to other metalworkers and wire workiers.
Terry Jane England
Terra Mater Jewelry
Atlanta, GA. USA
A wild and crazy red head who loves the smell of the workshop, flux
and a hot torch. Jewelry making is a passion.
Dutchman’s Art Studio
Edmonds, WA. USA
I am a third generation artist. My grandfather was a commercial
artist and illustrator for the American Can Company. Mother was a
small home town artist that specialized in portraits. I work mostly
with silver, creating jewelry from my experiences growing up and in
nature. I can draw and paint, but I prefer working with my hands and
using a torch.
I learn mostly from reading and doing. My father kept me away from
the girls by keeping me busy in the garage, working on cars, doing
home projects. So I know how to work with tools. Which has all been
beneficial when fabricating. I have degrees in Zoology and
