Nancy Hopkins of Silver Muse Studio

Many small business owners balance parenting and their craft, and Nancy Hopkins of Silver Muse Studio is no different. "I am the mother of two active boys--ages 8 and 20," she says. "Because of their age difference it is like having two only children, and they keep me busy in their own ways. Making jewelry is a great creative outlet for me and helps keep me sane!"


 


Lucky for the rest of us! Nancy's beautiful work includes bracelets, earrings, and rings. Her jewelry features sterling silver in sculpted into a variety of delicate forms, often oxidized to bring out unique shades in the metal.

"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 a few tools. Today, I really look forward to going to my studio and using my own power tools to create wonderful jewelry."
