Until I was 40 years old, I never thought of myself as creative. Around that time, my neighbor showed me how to make beaded jewelry and I was hooked! I started working at a bead store and I had an idea for a metal owl pendant. I knew exactly what he should look like, but had no idea how to make him. In order to bring the owl to life, I took a riveting class at the bead store. Metal working is fascinating! Soon, I took over teaching all the metal classes. At home, I began experimenting, watching videos online and taking classes when I could. I primarily work with copper because it is so warm and versatile. Part of what I like about metal working, is being able to take something that looks hard and turning it into something that has movement and depth.
