Since I have a close family member living with Type 1 Diabetes, I have a develped a small collection of jewelry that includes long drop earrings and handmade silver necklaces, to support the work of JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).
Each purchase from this collection sends a donation to JDRF, including these handmade silver earrings.
I am Laura Teague and you may as well know right up front that I am obsessed with sterling silver.
I have been making sterling silver (and sometimes gold) jewelry for about 15 years. I am largely self taught (lots and lots of practice!) but have also taken classes with local and nationally known metal workers.
Originally from Arkansas I currently live and work in my adopted home state, Louisiana, where we regularly dodge hurricanes but enjoy the wonderful people and food here!
