WHO IS STA-C?
To work with my hands is a joy.
To create for others is happiness.
I grew up in an artistic family that encouraged me to pursue many different skills. From magic marker painting as an elementary student, to pursuing metal, stonework and jewelry-smithing as an adult, finding and growing my passion to create has been a fantastic and lifelong journey.
I have always enjoyed working with my hands. When I was young that meant gluing and stapling and sewing. But since taking classes at
a cozy little art school in the hills of Georgia, I have been perfecting my skills in stone cutting, chain making and metal-smithing, and have found the metals I love working with; primarily silver and copper.
I started with classes on gemstone facetting and silver-smithing. Now I go every summer and add to my skills: enameling, casting, chasing & repousse', etc...you will see these skills reflected in my work.
My creative work in jewelry making has become such an important part of my life that the day isn't complete for me without doing something jewelry related... even if it is just dreaming of design ideas.
As you browse, you will notice I have quite a variety of styles, but lean towards classic with an upbeat feel.
If you are looking for jewelry that compliments who you are and brightens you up, you have come to the right place!
