Get to Know

Hello! My name is Jenn Buckle and I am the person behind Sapphireskies_Designs. I started creating jewelry after a divorce in 1997. I wanted pretty accessories and I didn't make enough money to buy them, so I started to make my own. Before I knew it, the orders were rolling in, and I had a second income. As my business grew, I found myself working 2 full time jobs! I loved the security of my day job as an accountant for Shipwreck Beads, but I loved the freedom of creating and selling my original jewelry pieces as well. I was encouraged by new husband (now married almost 20 years) to quit my day job and chase my dream! He knew I had what it took to become successful! I was an independent self-represented jewelry artist from 2005-2013. In 2013, I was approached by a local school district to teach Metal Jewelry Design in a high school near by. I accepted the position, went back to school, and became a Career and Technical Education Teacher. I'm in my 6th year of teaching full time, but still pursue my passion on a part time basis. The results of that passion, is what you see displayed here. I tend to be the most prolific when I am on breaks from school.
