early Early

In 2003 I started selling my first commercial jewelry designs at Spool in Kansas City. Spool was owned by my friends Cobi Newton & Hadley Johnson who supported my craft and gave me my first opportunity to sell my pieces. Thanks to them I gained the confidence to push designing jewelry & grow into creating Early. From there I started organizing local shows & seeking out national stores to consign my jewelry. More history to come...but Early did not become my full time job till the fall of '06. Pictured above: a reconstructed necklace & blue feather earrings on my first business card.
