I'm somewhat of a closet artist, my day-job is serving as the Teton County, Idaho Prosecuting Attorney. I was elected in November 2020. Prior to that, I worked as the Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney. Making jewelry is my creative outlet, it helps me de-stress and turn off my brain in the evenings and on weekends.
I've been making jewelry for almost 20 years but historically just gave it away as gifts or kept it for myself. With the encouragement of friends and family, I decided to start selling some pieces last year (August 2022). My favorite part of the process is cutting a new clay cane (the blocks of marble I make by combining lots of tiny hand-cut pieces) to see what the inside looks like. It's always a little bit of a surprise.
