I am a jewelry maker (among other things) who lives in the Great Smoky Mountains. My jewelry-making obsession started when a friend encouraged me buy a roll of wire and a pair of round nose pliers. I immediately became obsessed with the power of wire to create shape. I began watching every "how too" video I could find. And of course being the stubborn out-of-the-box, hands-on creative that I am, I went my own way and started creating as many variations of classic ideas as I could think of. Welcome to my obsession, I hope you enjoy!
