I love collaborations! They are ingenious! To share ideas, brainstorm
and plan with someone else is thrilling. No two people think alike, so
the beautiful creations that come about and the new pool of knowledge
you get to dip in are always inspiring to me.
A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of having a chit chat with Amanda
Schoppel at Freedom and wham bam "why don't we create something
together?". Both initially being hesitant to add yet more work onto our proverbial plates it quickly turned into a thrilling productive idea
exchange and setting up of plans.
am an Artist (with thirteen years of experience in the visual arts) and
a jeweler. I keep saying that I'm an 'Artist-Jeweler'... SO, recently I
decided to combine them both in my professional life. I hope that by
doing this, you will witness my discipline, and true dedication to my
work - now and forever more!
