Artistic Style: Defining and Evaluating Artistic  Style in Jewelry

My name is Jess. When I was a little girl, my mum had an antique shop, and I loved sitting by her side as she refinished some objects, researched others to price them and haggled with customers. When I grew up, I realised my passions resided in the realm of jewelry. I made a few pieces and dabbled in welding and design, but ultimately, I realised I am a curator rather than a designer. I decided to follow my mum in my career path. Now, I travel to flea markets and boot sales, selling jewelry I've found at estate sales, charity shops and the like. I don't focus on the precious jewels. Instead, I'm all about artistry and style. If you want to learn about it and other topics, check out my posts.
