I wish I would have known what I wanted to do, cause I would have gone to school for jewelry design. I always said that if I had discovered art and jewelry design much earlier in my life, I may be in a different place right now.
That being said I did not discover jewelry making or anything art related until my mid thirties, and now I can't get enough. I enjoy everything about art and when I made it part of my life, I knew that this is what I wanted to spend my life doing.
I stared making jewelry after I took a earring making class and loved it. I went out the next day and bought everything I could afford so I could make my own jewelry. I realized after a few weeks of making jewelry I knew that this is what I wanted to do, and 15 years later here I am.
What was the defining moment for you when you decided that art/crafting/creating was going to be a part of your everyday life?
