One day my daughter came home from California and sat down on the floor with beads in hand. She explained what and how she was creating her jewelry and I have been creating ever since.
How long have you been creating your chosen craft?
I started jewelry making some 10 years ago.
What are your crafting influences?
As an artist, I dare to be different, use my creativity and believe in myself. I think these feelings show in my creative designs whether they are my original techniques or my new adventures.
Does anyone in your family do a similar craft?
Yes, my daughter makes jewelry also. We have different styles.
What makes this kind of craft "good" to you?
I work full-time in a stress filled position and creating jewelry is my release and passion! I have created over 2800 one-of-a-kind jewelry creations.
My jewelry designs are for sale at craft shows, art shows, and Library art shows are big in our area. I have also rented booth space for sale of my designs. Right now my designs are in two retail locations and I am always looking for "just the right store" to place my jewelry. My jewelry can be found for sale online at RMdesigns on Art Fire along with a promotion facebook page at RMdesigns with a link to ArtFire.
What are some of your favorite type, styles and techniques of jewelry designing?
I love designing wire wrapped jewelry and a new media that I am now working with is - new designs using Vintage Jewelry Treasures. I am happy to give vintage treasures a new look and a new place to shine!
I am featuring a new creation called "Celebration"! Celebration was inspired with the coming of summer's vibrant colors of greens, yellows, and reds. It is a big, bold and beautiful strung piece!
Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoy making them.
