There are few things as satisfying to me as a productive day on my bench. I love the process of taking fresh, powdery castings and cleaning, sanding, filing, and polishing them into finished pieces of jewelry. These are special pieces for me: My mentor, who passed away earlier this week, had encouraged me to create more pieces based on my Pebble ring and I'm so glad I listened to her advice. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a mentor who understands you, your aesthetic and inspiration, and the marketplace: My mentor did and I'm so appreciative for everything I learned from her.
My name is Judi and I make sustainable fine jewelry. I wake up happy every day because I'm able to do what I love for a living.
