Linthicum, MD. USA

My name is Kim aka MingoMama & I live in Linthicum, Md. My name
MingoMama was born out of my love of pink flamingos. Yes, I have
reached one goal of living long enough to embarrass my children. A
few years ago I took a chainmaille class & found I loved creating
something that let my left & right brain work together. I work
strictly in silver & now sell some work to support my habit. I get
bored easily & have a tray of single earrings to show for it. I like
to see what other folks are doing new & creative, hence checking out
this site.

Elaine Felhandler
New York, NY. USA

I’m an architect specializing in custom residential work. I love
designing in all scales and in all materials. Making jewelry has
become an important facet in my life. There’s nothing I find more
satisfying than designing something and making it myself; and
there’s something to be said to seeing the fruition of a design in
less than a year’s time!

I’ve been taking classes in jewelry fabrication for the past year,
and am continuing with them this year. As with any pursuit in life,
you can never have enough education. I hope to someday have the
skills to complete the jewelry I envision. This site is a great
asset toward that continuing education!
