Mayville, North Dakota
What inspires you as a designer-artist?
Classic cars and the automotive industry, vintage, and alternative culture.
What medium do you work with mostly?
Metal, clay, and glass.
Why did you become enchanted with this style of jewelry-making?
I have been a "car chick" my whole life, and I now manage an auto parts store. I've always wanted to find a way to incorporate my lifestyle into my jewelry for myself and for those who are like-minded. I am also inspired by very vintage looking and dark styles of jewelry creations.
Where and How do you sell your jewelry?
I am on Etsy, I have done numerous vendor shows and car shows, and I have actually had orders placed at my full time job simply by wearing my creations!
What is the name of the piece you submitted with your success story?
Blue ATO fuse necklace
What inspired this design?
Automotive fuses, which is what the pendant is made from.
How did it come together?
I had been searching for a way to use fuses as pendants for a while, and one day it finally came to me as to how and it just fell together after that. I have them in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, and clear!
