Jewelry has been my passion my entire life. I love the way a piece of jewelry can mean and symbolize so much to the person wearing it. And I feel lucky to be a part of that whenever I create something new for someone.
As a recent graduate from a fantastic jewelry and metals college bachelor's program, I am in the exciting and sometimes frightening place of setting off into the world of starting my own business based around my work. The process of making things as my full time job has always been my dream. So far it has been a heartwarming process with more support than I had ever imagined. I am extremely thankful to everyone who has supported me so far in the form of encouragement, money for my work, advice and knowledge on both craft and business.
Patreon is an amazing way to keep living as an independent artist. For hundreds of years artists have thrived on the patronage of their communities and Patreon is a modern day continuation of that integral process. For my work, this means that you, my wonderful patron, give a donation, however small, even as little as $1 a month (it seriously all helps!) and in return I make a piece of jewelry for you depending on the level of patronage you chose. Dependable monthly income is vital to artists who work to make a living off of their work and Patreon is a great platform to make that happen.
THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AT MY WORK, FOR SHARING IT, AND FOR BEING MY PATRON!
