How did you get started in your line of business?

I've made jewelry for years. I started doing simple beading, then wire wrapping, and now metalsmith jewelry. I take classes at a local college to continue to learn new techniques.

Where do you find your inspiration?

I find my inspiration through many different venues. Often, I find a stone that I like which inspires the whole piece of jewelry.

What is your favorite item in your shop at the moment?

My silver and turquoise bangle

How do you promote your work?

I don't do a lot of promoting. I've been fortunate to have a lot of word of mouth and return customers!

What is one of your most important lessons you’ve learned since starting your business?

When the creative juices aren't flowing, don't force it. Your best work is done when you are fully relaxed and enjoying the creative moment.

What advice would you give someone just starting out?

Have fun with your shop. Sell stuff that you love, and inevitably someone else will love it too!

What are your other sites (facebook, twitter, blog, etc.)?
