Prior to this I spent many years in College and University. I worked in Government offices, did a lot of online and print publishing and honed my skills as a "Receptionist." Essentially, everything I learned (spent!) during my academic years was probably money I could have put into what I love and excel in now: Creating jewelry!
However, my love of the Arts does influence some of my designs so I suppose it was not all just bad Coffee and Long lectures on Campus!
