I never planned to be a jewelry maker.
But when I discovered I had a nickel allergy, back when I was a teenager, I began to ask questions and work out work-arounds. After a time, I had learned enough to successfully get my ears pierced again. When I first put pliers to wire in 2009, I knew I had to do more, and Naturally Nickel Free was born a year later.
My guiding light is knowing that you will be wearing what I make soon. Sure, you need something that doesn't cause you pain, but that's just a starting point. You need me to create an expression - something that started in my hands and in my head, and that somehow fuses craftsmanship with color to say something particular. It should be something you respond to personally, and that is worth wearing for years to come.
Please let me know if you have questions for me. One of the advantages of small businesses like mine, is that it's not hard to communicate with the person in charge. I will always do my best to answer your questions.
