The journey of one Angsty Artist, struggling to find her identity, her name and her own style.
Thursday, March 31, 2011
I've been very unproductive all week. So many things I feel I have to get done, and yet I don't get anything done at all. I already have more custom orders, can you believe it?
Tonight, I asked myself what I would do if I could make whatever I wanted, and this brooch was my choice. I think I am finally ready to start caging stones in my own style and this caging style is the direction I wish I had more time to explore.
I love the pin backs I'm doing now. They look and operate more like a real piece of jewelry. Did I just say that? As if wire is not 'real jewelry'? Forgive me, you know what I mean I hope!
My name is Mary. My daughter has recently moved on to college leaving me footloose and fancy free. This affords me more time to pursue my own goals:)
I have always made things since I was a young girl, I loved needlepoint and embroidery in my youth. I tried my hand at many crafts over my life but I have always stuck with jewelry and beads.
When I discovered wire wrapping I knew I had found what I was looking for all my life!
I work in engineering designing mechanical parts, though currently I manage mechanical aspects of PC Boards specifically.
I dream of one day wire wrapping full time.
