Wildflowyr Jewelry: Creating handcrafted jewelry and designs since 2004
Following nearly 9 years of service in the USAF as a Russian linguist I turned to a new direction in life in 2004: making and selling handcrafted jewelry.
I've always loved searching for interesting rocks, arrowheads, and other types of nature's treasures as a child so transitioning to creating jewelry with beads and gemstones as a young adult was something that always felt completely natural.
Creating jewelry, quite simply, was a path that I was destined to take. I started out with simple beaded designs as a hobby while at home raising children and taking care of the household, but as life took many twists and turns, I learned new techniques (bead looming, glass bead making, resin and inlay designs and eventually metalsmithing to name a few!) and eventually turned my little hobby to a successful full-time job.
I absolutely love what I do and I'm fortunate and thankful for that. I wouldn't change working with my wonderful customers creating beautiful designs for them for anything! 🖤
