Taking Flight
Meet the Designer-Artist

Where do you live?
New Market, Tennessee

What inspires you as a designer-artist?

What medium do you work with mostly?
I started with Tree of Life jewelry this last January, then I was asked to do a craft show with a beach theme (it got cancelled) and I started doing wire wrap seashells. Then I found out about copper tubing jewelry last week and have done several of them. I like doing all of them.

Why did you become enchanted with this style of jewelry-making?
The Tree of Life jewelry presents me with a chance to do scenery embedded in hoops. I have sold a lot of them. I do it as a hobby but started doing craft shows and am enjoying all of that.

What is the name of the piece you submitted with your success story?
Taking Flight

What inspired this design?
Birds flying around my yard and the trees.

How did it come together?
It just came together after I did the wiring of the tree.
