WELCOME!! .. to the temporary home of www.thewildinside.com (A full e-commerce site is on the drawing board - I initially thought it would be here by now .. but I'm thinking now it could be another year or so. Times are tight, folks .. Hang in there!)
I, my husband and our Spinone Italiano (Cara) can be found on the Oswegatchie River in Northern New York. I moved my jewelry business from Albany, NY to follow my husband's new career as Executive Director of the Frederic Remington Art Museum here in Ogdensburg. I make hand crafted artisan jewelry using precious metals, pearls, precious and semi-precious stones, handcrafted lampwork glass, Swarovksi crystals, ancient trade beads, and a continually growing list of materials too long to itemize here. I enjoy all manner of jewelry creation and, as a result, find it difficult to focus on any one style or skill set .. I knot pearls; string beads; bend and wrap wire; cut, saw and drill metal sheet and continue to experiment with Precious Metal Clay. I never tire of learning new skills, and hope you enjoy the images and ramblings I post here. Please feel free to contact me if you're in the area (or even if you're not in the area). I would love to show you more!
