Why Do I make Jewelry?

This month's Blog Carnival question is "Why do you make jewelry?"

I have always been an artist, and have never worn a lot of jewelry. Sculpture was one of my favorite classes in college. I tried clay, wood, stone, but my favorite medium was metal. Old, rusted metal I found and welded into sculptures.

It took me some time to realize jewelry did not necessarily mean the classic diamond on a prong setting, but could be more sculptural like art jewelry. I took a class and was hooked.
