I have been designing and making jewlery for about 10 years now. I have learned mostly through trial and error, but also from some of the great tutorials, I have purchased from artists I admire. My favorite medium these days is metal, weather sheet or wire. I am inspired by nature the most, but also music, art, life... these things are inspiring to me as well.
