About Sophisticated Hippie

I grew up in rural Washington State but have ties to Montana and Texas. I currently reside in Indiana with my husband and our rescued dogs Snoopy and Presley. I have two grown children and one beautiful grandchild. I was a professional seamstress for over 20 years but in 2002 I required post surgery physical therapy for my arms and hands, which is when jewelry making came to be a part of my life and my creative outlet.

My goal is to have a perfect balance of color and shape. I prefer to use natural materials such as gemstones, freshwater pearls, copper and sterling silver. But I also love the sparkle of crystal and fancy glass. Copper is my favorite metal to work with since it has so many rich variations. I am most content when my hands are busy, so you can imagine how often I am creating something new!
If you have questions about terms or descriptions of the products I use in creating my jewelry you can find several helpful answers here.  For other questions simply send me a message using the contact form and I will get back to you right away.
