1) I began making jewelry with my super awesome mentor Nina Bagley (etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=29835) as a project during my senior year of high school. I helped her a little bit with her business and then began to create things of my own! I have always been an artist but I didnt begin to really pursue it as a business until my freshmen year of college.2) I create because my life is so crazy and the minutes I get to be creative are a great outlet for me. I get to imagine pieces and design them, find inspiration from materials and various places that I visit. Much of that inspiration comes through in the pieces and I try to incorporate my experiences in everything that I create.3) My river rock pendants are a lot of fun to make! Mostly because I get to go down to the river with my family (or the beach with friends) and I can take time to really look around and observe. Then I find beautiful rocks or shells that I keep and make beautiful pieces with! I make a lot of things but these are so personal and special to me that they are probably my favorite!4) Etsy is great because you can find anything! All different kinds of prices, different artists from all around the world. The improvements they have made to the search engine are great too! The treasury's are awesome as well.5) In my little apartment in Raleigh, NC.6) I'm a biology student at North Carolina State University!
Here is one of my favorites....I love these river rocks, very creative.
