Handmade Holiday Gift Guide Feature! Fired Up Ladies Hammered
I am a single parent of 3 wonderful teenagers ( that sure is an oxymoron!) and am a full time artist. I show my work at art shows, about 45 a year, and then sell on the internet through Etsy. I currently spend the winter in Florida in my RV so my kids can go to school and I can pursue my art full time. My house is actually in Ohio and we spend the summer up north.
I have been making jewelry with my handmade clay focal beads, www.firedupladies.etsy.com and www.firedupladiesbeads.etsy.com, for about 10 years and about 9 months ago began working with the metal. I started out with just the stamping and incorporating the ceramic charms and have just kept exploring and continue to try all types of new designs. I am constantly thinking about how to do something different and unique with my work.
