I Made Your Jewelry But Not All The Beads Or Wire
As I progress in the fashion and jewelry industry my focus is on sourcing materials directly from people who make all that I use. Eventually I'd like to source my own rough and shape all the beads I use with my hands. At this time I am working toward finding the source and meeting the actual people who are shaping every bead, fabric or metal I use. As an Artisan, I respect other artisans and the importance of their work, lifestyle, and mastery. While I search for the right sources it is of utmost importance that I use the materials I've already acquired through the years while promoting the lifestyle of upcycling/recycling as well as responsible sourcing. Repurposing materials we already have is an amazing way to understand imagination and discover a new connection to our ever changing selves. The qualities jewelry & fashion design bring to life are a reflection of our humanity.
