What was your inspiration?
My inspiration was that I needed a piece of jewllery to go with an outfit I was wearing to a special occasion. I could not find the perfect piece and so decided to make it. Lesson learned, make it yourself and I have been doing that ever since. I sometimes wear my pieces and end up having someone ask if it is for sale (which inspires me all the more) People now ask me to make the something for them, which by the way is great, so I create, enjoy making the jewellry and as a bonus I make money too!
What are you most proud of?
I suppose the fact that I usually start off with one plan in mind and then when I am finished it is much better and often very different than I imagined.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just go with your instincts,
