My name is Morgan, I grew up and still live in Schenectady, New York, and love to create things with my hands. I come from a long line of artists and musicians; I myself being gifted with art. I went to New Hampshire Institute of Art, majoring in traditional painting and minoring in printmaking, although I would have minored in jewelry if it was available. In 2017 I began making a unique kind of jewelry. I took the knowledge I had learned in my advanced jewelry class in high school, and my years of crocheting for fun, and combined the two to create crochet jewelry. I use a shaped wire frame as my base and then crochet and sew with 100% mercerized cotton over it, incorporating different types of beads along the way. The outcome being cotton crochet jewelry, a unique and rare design. I am currently working on incorporating soldered jewelry and sheet metal into my pieces.
