Kandi-O Inspired Jewelry

My mother, during the summer of 1975, in an effort to keep me out of her hair, pawned me off on our tiny town's local metal smith.  As a 7th grader I soaked up everything the teacher put in front of me.  Fast forward to my 40's--it was there I found myself remembering how much fun I had that summer.  Once my children were in school, I wanted to do something creative.  In 2002 I started Kandi-O--I began with purses made from magazine and album covers and earrings made from guitar picks.  It was at this time that I realized that what WAS is the way that it should be.  I began to reintroduce myself to metalsmithing.  It's my passion!!! I learn something new every day and I love it that way!!!!
