How The Journey Started

Nowadays, those items are called found objects.  Sometimes I would keep and wear the jewelry or give my creations as gifts.  The love and passion that I had as a child for creating jewelry, was lost.

While working in the mainstream of life, I wondered if there was something more for me than the 8-6 daily grind and unhappiness and feeling unfulfilled.   I found out that Yes!, there is something more:
