My name is Heidi. I am a Colorado native, a military spouse, mother of a toddler, and a self-taught metalsmith & Jewelry Artist. I received a bachelor's degree in Business/Marketing in 2007, but I have always needed more of an outlet for my creativity and artistic expression.
In 2010, my husband encouraged me to pursue more creative projects and find an outlet for my overwhelming amount of creativity. I found jewelry making.
Over the course of several years, I took many jewelry making and technique classes online and in person, including a two-month long jewelry soldering course held in a Jewelry Arts studio in Santa Barbara, CA (June 2013). I am also continually taking online silversmith/jewelry arts courses, as our military lifestyle makes it difficult for me to do in-residence schooling.
Not only have I found the perfect job for my personality and creative passions, but as a military spouse, I have found a perfect portable career for our ever-moving career with the Air Force.
