I am a native Ohioan who became comfortable with a hammer while doing hurricane relief work in New Orleans my first year out of college. After marrying a Colorado boy and having children I grew envious that at the end of the day my construction worker husband had something tangible to show for his hours of work.
When I began searching for a hands on, creative, outlet I noticed that most handmade items are geared toward women. That is when I set out to create something that would be affordable and appreciated by men. I soon fell in love with metal work and hand stamping and started Tattooed Silver. I am the mom of three little boys. When I'm not breaking up wrestling matches, having dance parties, or picking up Cheerios, I can be found in her workshop hand stamping silverware I found in the local antique mall.
