All my work is handmade, down to the chains themselves. I work with sheet metal and wire. I solder, hand cut, shape, and stone set everything in my work. Most of the stones I use are from sellers on Etsy, some of whom even mine their own stones! All the silver is .925 Sterling. I also use some copper, brass, and bronze to add some color, along with Liver of Sulfur patina and torch patina.
As a profession, I'm an elementary art teacher at a Title I school who strives to inspire children every day. I love teaching the next generation and that the next generation teaches me in turn.
In order to become an art teacher, I had to learn about and create a wide variety of art - painting, drawing, digital art, sculpting, textiles, photography, printmaking, ect. Most I liked and some...well, made me admire the work of fellow artists all the more.
Due to my job, my processing time can vary, depending my current work load. But I will communicate that timeline to you once you have made a purchase, or beforehand if you inquire. :)
