I thought I’d share with you the background story of how JILL.HERLANDS came to be ... you’ve all been so good to me that I know I owe you at least that.
I have always loved taking things apart and putting them back together; such as a tee where I would cut off the sleeves and then sew them back on in a new way, or when I took apart the jewelry my mom gave me and I played with the setting, bending and pulling it until it had the look I was after. In 2014, I thought that learning to solder would help me play with those old jewels. As soon as I picked up the torch I knew I had found my ‘thing’! The rest, I taught myself through experimentation
I made a small studio in my kitchen (some of you will remember that @dlaziz ) and created every day - then, someone told me that I should post on IG. I wasn’t really into social media at the time, but thought why not (I say ‘why not’ a lot in life!) I immediately found my ‘people’ and was hooked to both metalwork and IG ... I’ve virtually and literally met so many amazing people and I’m honored to have created for many of you. One of my favorite things to do is to respond to your fantastic comments ... Thank you for that ... Sterling silver and concrete ring, set with Tourmaline 💓
