Hello, my name is Connie and I started making jewelry after I went on my one and only a cruise- to Mexico. My roommate had made a very simple necklace with chain and crystals to match a beautiful royal blue outfit for our dress-up dinner. It was quite elegant and she received numerous compliments.
Being a "crafty" person I thought to myself I could do this...little did I know it would become such a passion for me! I started with simple necklaces and earrings. I bought books, watched tutorials on the Internet and anything else I could use to learn. I branched off into Polymer clay and PMC. But my real passion came after taking a metalsmithing class. I was hooked! After 5 College terms of metalsmithing, I've come a long way since then and believe it shows in my pieces and my $ales.
I have invested a substantial amount of time and money in high quality tools and equipment to aide me in making the beautiful handcrafted pieces that I sell. So on this site, you will see the fruits of my labor and the future of things to come.....
