jewelry for me started as a kid. using oven clay to make beads putting them into bracelets and necklaces and selling them at school and around the neighborhood to my friends and even some of my teachers.
To getting my first lamp working kit in jr high. and making glass beads till late into the night.
And then lucking out in highschoool getting one that had a great jewelry program and I just fell in love with everything about jewelry and the jewelry industry. Eventually going on to seek more training in casting and fabrication. And moving on to learn to cut diamonds at The American Institute of Diamond Cutting. And then learning gem faceting for all other gem stones. jewelry is a passion I will continue to love and learn about for the rest of my days
At North Owl we love to use the amazing gemstones that we have in our own big back yard from sun stones in Oregon, Ellensberg blue agate, diamonds from Canada and Montana sapphires. theres no reason to travel around the world with the bounty of gemstones right here
