You want me to tell you where babies come from? When a man and woman love each other.... I'm originally from Buffalo, NY but I went to Parsons School of Design in NYC for sculpture. While I was there I learned some jewelry making techniques from my Aunt Marge who lives in Philadelphia. After school somehow I got sucked into the music industry for several years and had no time for jewelry (well I made it as often as I could in my "spare" time). So about a year ago I quit and started traveling around the world and when I came back I began making jewelry in earnest. Wish me luck!
Where do you work? Show us your space please!
What is your favorite tool?
Ball Peen hammer... I want a new smaller one though my dapping block is a close second and now disc cutter. oh wait that's three...
What time of the day are you the most productive/inspired? I work early in the morning/late at night (which sometimes overlap) but I think I might be the most PRODUCTIVE in the midafternoon.
What inspires you?
Everything... I can't focus, I see bubblewrap and I think I want to make pendants out of that, and then I see a tool I like and I want to try that, I look in a book and I want to try that, a friend comes over and tells me about something and I want to try THAT, I go to a store and I want to use the color I see on the wall, I buy a vintage magazine and I want to have a retro feel... blah blah blah,
