I am a young st heart lady who got the jewellry making bug just over
a year ago in an effort to stop smoking. If I had known how
addictive it could be I might have been more wary!!! I started
stringing but soon got into wire work and now chain maille is my
passion. I find it quite meditative- all that concentrating. It
would be my dream to sell my jewellry but I haven’t the nerve at the
moment- I am not confident enough in my abilities - although I find
they do go down well as gifts to family and friends. Ah well I’ll
keep on practicing and reading about it.

I am a relative new comer to the Jewelry industry but I love it. I
live in the NYC area and have studied at many of the private studios
around town. I am currently focused on Enamel jewelry.
