I am a jewellery (that's jewelry for my southern friends) lover, wearer, and designer. I have loved jewellery since I was a young girl, always getting into my moms collection making a muck of things.
After graduating high school in 1995 I fell into the family business of financial planning, working admin, managing offices, working for mutual fund companies. The one thing I learned.. The Financial world sucks all the creativity out of you.
After having my 2 children, Maaren and Leif, 18 months apart I really had no desire to go back to work in the business district. Luckily for me the crash of the economy and wall street helped me get a package to walk away from it all.
So here I am almost a year later starting my dream job...
I have always wanted to be in business for myself, and I love being creative, and I love making jewellery. My metal of choice is silver and I love taking impressions of nature, or people, cool buttons, sea shells and turning them into wearable art.
I am having troubles naming my business and so at this point am working with a descriptive website name: www.silverfingerprints.ca
If you have any ideas of great business names for a fingerprint, charm, impression, business.... I would be all over it! This is the hardest part of starting my business and it seems like a pretty important one to have.
Thanks for reading!
