Silver Muse Studio
My name is Nancy and I'm the sole owner, jewelry designer and maker at Silver Muse Studio. I am the mother of two active boys - ages 7 and 19. Because of their age difference, it is like having two only children. They keep me busy in their own ways. Making jewelry is a great creative outlet for me and helps keep me sane!
Ever since I was a little girl, I have enjoyed making things - whether it was a poster for a school project or jewelry out of brightly colored telephone wires my father brought home one night. I used to love to watch my father use his power tools in his workshop. I was amazed at what he could create with his hands and few tools. Today, I really look forward to going to my studio and using my own power tools to create wonderful jewelry. Using my hands to create something has always been a great stress reliever for me. I also love hanging out with my three studiomates who keep me inspired and motivated. Luckily, I have a wonderful husband who is supportive of my creative endeavors.

Each piece I make is special to me, and hopefully special to you too. There is a part of my heart and soul in each piece.Discovery Sterling and Pearl NecklaceCopper beads on a curly earwire - handmade
