Growing my jewelry business means evolving and growing in my metalsmithing techniques and my design style. This also means my jewelry designs will be evolving and they have. My jewelry has changed so much in the last year. Sometimes when I look at a recent finished piece, I can't believe it's mine - it's so different from the jewelry I designed when I first learned metalsmithing. And although my jewelry designs have evolved, I still hold true to letting the natural gemstones be the focus.
