“Hello! My name is Emily and this is The Art of Em. I specialize in jewelry, but I do many many types of art. I love to just work with my hands in general. I love steampunk anything and colorful everything, as well as gothic and dark fantasy designs. I am self taught! All my jewelry is made in a smoke free, pet friendly home.
I’ve been doing all forms of art and crafts for as long as I can remember (you name it, I’ve likely done it), and the past two years have been devoted to jewelry making, which I fell in love with doing as a business. I’ve learned so much and I have so much fun doing it, and I plan to continue it for a long time. My second love is making cosplay costumes, but jewelry making is the most satisfying for me. I love raw stones and crystals with just a simple chain, so the rock is the main attraction. I plan to major in geology in fact! I also love the intricacy of chainmaille and am currently making a bunch of new pieces in that category. ”
