The beginning was simple; I just wanted beautiful jewelry without paying a ridiculous amount. Being in college has a way of showing you just how broke you really are.
From there I taught myself how to work chainmaille.
I. Was. HOOKED.
Chainmaille quickly became something I looked forward to every day. Crafting in this medium was (and still is) my stress relief from my crazy life. The more I did, the more passionate I became. Soon, I was making all my friends and family member's something for holidays or special occasions. Then I was either making or fixing for people I did not know directly. Which lead to being a part of festivals and other art shows. My side hustle was rapidly turning into something that looked more like a full-time job.
