I remember being about 10 years old when my dad bought me some silver wire and some beads. I started making rings and bracelets right away – with no tools, just my fingers. Mind you, 40 years ago there was no internet, so you could not just look up designs on the computer. But I managed to make some pretty jewelry – which a couple years ago I actually found at my parents house 🙂
Knitting and crocheting continues until today, being it pullovers, sweaters, doilies, animals, blankets – you name it.
But I added a few more of my favorite design materials to it:
Glass for engraving – I did some beautiful glasses for a couple of singers at an opera premier
Polymer Clay – oh I love to make figurines and jewelry with polymer clay and beads
Leather embossing – what a beautiful art: cellphone cases, bags, key chains, mouse pads……..
And naturally Silver and Gold smithing. I studied at American School of Jewelry to become a Jewelry Designer and Bench Jeweler and graduated in 2005. I made a lot of jewelry, but right at this moment I am lacking a bench to do the more complex Gold and Silver smithing work.
Now you might ask, what does she do with all those projects? Well, I used to sell them on Zibbiz.com, but unfortunately that website retired in 2014. So now I just sell them through word of mouth and to former customers.
I will post my designs here and on my other blog C.K.Creations
