This blog is to help you to be creative and to be informative to you that are just curious. It can also help you to purchase better quality jewelry. Please purchase handmade jewelry from artisans in the USA. You can purchase beautiful and quality one of a kind pieces of jewelry. Get to know your local artisans. You'll be happy knowing you're supporting local artists.
Being creative is fun and it can be a real escape from all of the stresses of life. Sometimes I run in to problems that seem so monumental. They can leave me dumb-founded and bring progress to a standstill.
I started making jewelry 53 years ago. I started making jewelry just like we all start anything new to us. We have an idea of what we want to do but no idea of where to start. I’m by no means a fast learner but I love a challenge and I’m not easily discouraged. No matter how proficient I am at something, it took me a lot of research and a many mistakes to be able to make my jewelry.
I follow more than a thousand silversmiths and I’m humbled by how artistic they are and how complex and beautiful their work is. They challenge me and make me raise my standards higher every day.
If I can be of any assistance to you by making your learning curve any easer, it would make me happy. So please help me to help you by asking questions and following me. I will be on FaceBook, Instagram and YouTube. I have a lot to learn to be able to do quality blogs and videos on YouTube so be patient with this novice.
