My name is Cher, and I'm addicted to beads, gemstones and all that jewelry making entails... for which I blame my sister, Deb, lol
|Teal Apatite Antiqued Copper Necklace|
So while I began my little business with beaded crystal and glass jewelry designs (which I still love, as evidenced by my overwhelming supplies inventory), I've expanded my tastes and materials ... to gemstones, wire wrapping, wirework and in the past year or two, metalwork... and that has become a passion.

|Antique Copper Marquis Quartz Pendant|
I find it very satisfying to take a simple piece of wire, bending and forming it into an interesting shape, hammering (very theraputic too, btw), oxidizing and buffing it by hand, giving it a unique character all its own. With the proper tools, you can manipulate metal and make it do whatever you want and I love nothing better than to play with wire, which often results in a happy accident that surprises even me ;)
