In 2009 I was inspired by a pendant I saw at the runner's expo for my first half marathon in Phoenix. It was hand stamped and I wanted it! I was planning to buy it for myself as a reward after the race. But instead, I started researching the art of hand stamped jewelry, bought some supplies and made myself the pendant! I have a degree in interior design and love working with my hands. I have so many interests and am constantly starting new projects.
