I have been making jewelry my whole life. Using polymer clay and beads as a teenager. Then taking up silver clay in 2010 and moving onto learn basic silver jewelry making at evening classes.
I always sold my creations at local craft fairs, but it was just a hobby for many years as I worked full time in engineering.
My life changed in 2017 when I quit the day job to study at the world renowned BCU School of Jewelry in Birmingham's Jewelry Quarter
