I was digging through my closet, and I found the jewelry I made a long while back. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but when I first decided to start a business my initial plan was to create jewelry. I collected a stash of tools and beads, took a ring making class, and then a silver smithing class (in which I nearly blew myself up with a blow torch, but that’s a story for another day). In the end, the process of making jewelry was too repetitive for me, so I moved on to paper products. I thought it would be fun to share a few sketches and finished pieces from my jewelry phase way back in 2007.
