I was making jewelry for family n friends then people started contacting me to order stuff or custom make stuff. So my hobby became a business.
2019 I taught jewelry technique at Virginia Park every Wednesday had 8- 10 students.
Iater that year I was honored by the mayor of Santa monica for bringing the community together n recieved a 500.00 grant.
I find making jewelry is very therapeutic n there's no limit to what one could create.
I feel its rewarding to share ur skills with others n its great to have a hobby.
I learned alot in a short time & liked that ince she showed the skill I was able to use my own artistic twist.
I work from a book/YouTube n give each student creative control once they learned the technique. I always remind my students to have fun.
I m self taught books, webinars, classes at the local college, YouTube & talking to other jewelry makers / designers n picking their brains.
35.00 - 100.00 depending on the complexity of the technique
a girlfriend was making sunglasses with jewelry n cat ears dragging me around downtown la for supplies n I just started creating my own line of pieces.
