I started creating jewelry in 2004 when my boyfriend, Ted, introduced me to the art of Chainmaille. We had stopped by a little shop in Helen, GA that sold Chainmaille Armor. Ted made a comment about wanting a chainmaille bracelet, so upon our return home, I set out on a journey to find everything I'd need to make one myself. From that moment on, I was hooked, and it's been non-stop ever since.
I create chainmaille in Sterling Silver, Argentium Silver, Gold Filled, Rose Gold Filled, Brass and Stainless Steel but do design some jewelry using Semi Precious Stones and hand crafted Polymer Clay or Lampwork beads.
To add to the jewelry addiction, in 2006, Ted and I started working with Polymer Clay on glass. Actually Polymer Clay can go on just about anything, but I prefer glass for right now. It's a very time consuming art, but the finished pieces are absolutely beautiful.
I do welcome custom work for Chainmaille and Polymer Clay pieces. Please contact me through Etsy or post here on my blog if you have any questions.
I do have to give out some Etsy Love from time to time, so I'd like to feature another Freethinker artist. This time it's Le Chat Noir Studios. Her work is so amazing and so unique, you'll be drawn to her art in an instant. All of the detail that goes into each art doll is absolutely mind-blowing. If I could, I would own each and every doll she creates. She offers a lay-away plan and has an Itty Bitty Kitty of the Month Club to join. I think the Itty Bitty's are my favorite. =)
Check out her shop and others by doing a search on Etsy for "Freethinkers" under "Tags only" or enter the shop name under "Sellers: Username".
