Who is Silver Cloud Designs?
I have always loved jewelry!
I've taken metalsmithing classes over the years but while I was still working, I had no time to devote to making jeweler nor did I have the expertise to create the pieces that I invented. I needed classes to learn proper techniques.
Again, no time for that; I had to retire if my dream was to become reality.
In 2005 I retired and began taking metalsmithing classes along with a variety of technique classes. I enjoyed every minute learning what I waited so long for.
I continued with my classes and began making my own jewelry and started collecting tools for designing and forging sterling, argentum silver, copper, and brass jewelry of my own design. My friend suggested I enter a craft show to sell all that I had made so registered for a holiday show Brighton, Colorado and then it began; I was hooked.
My husband and I began showing my work at outdoor shows and a few indoor ones as well. The sales were pretty good and as the years went by I began to have repeat customers. Now I've begun selling my work at a couple galleries.
This year will be the last year for doing shows and focus on galleries and this website.
I still love what I do and am thrilled to be able to be creative at this time in my life.
Please visit me at one of my shows that are listed on the "About" page.
