Passion into Profession

From a young age, I was fascinated by the art of ring-making, using any material in reach—from carving out of quarters to creating origami rings with candy wrappers, and even wooden rings from branches found in the forest. However, as life progressed, this childhood passion was momentarily shelved. My journey led me to serve in the Marines, and upon returning to civilian life, I found myself immersed in work, striving to meet financial obligations.

The renewal of my passion for ring-making was sparked by a video showcasing a carbon fiber ring being made. This rekindled my childhood memories and ignited a realization that I could pursue this craft. I invested in the necessary tools and materials, and dedicating my evenings to mastering the art of ring-making. This dedication eventually led me to establish my own shop on Etsy, allowing me to devote myself full-time to this endeavor.

The path to success was not without its challenges. I faced numerous setbacks, including financial hardships that at one point left me homeless and reliant on gig work for sustenance. Despite these obstacles, my resolve never wavered. Through perseverance, I was able to reinvest in my craft, ultimately developing a unique style, which now sustains me.

My journey from a backyard hobbyist to a professional craftsman is a testament to the hard work and dedication I bring to every piece I create. My commitment to excellence is unwavering, as I continuously seek out the finest materials and innovative techniques to deliver exceptional jewelry. Should there ever be a concern with a piece I’ve crafted, I am always available to ensure satisfaction. I welcome your ideas and visions, as collaborating on unique designs is a part of the joy in this craft.

My heartfelt gratitude goes out to everyone who has supported me through this journey. Your encouragement has been instrumental in the growth of my shop.

Thank you for considering my work.

 

Warmest regards,
