Today, she still lives in the North Atlanta suburbs with her husband, their cat Cricket and two house bunnies, Heidi & Gretchen. In addition to creating her own jewelry designs, she has worked two days a week as a studio assistant to a locally well known jeweler since June of 2006.
She is a member of the following Etsy teams:- GaEtsyTeam- SEUS - SouthEast US Etsy Team- MSIA - MetalsmithsInAction team
Why do you create what you create?I create jewelry, not just for the sake of making jewelry but because I love tiny things with lots of detail and I thoroughly enjoy the process. I have a great appreciation for skill and craftsmanship, so I've dedicated myself and my time to learning the art of metalsmithing.
What other talents do you possess?I play in the dirt. I am an avid gardener and I love to take a plant that someone has neglected and nurse it back to life and watch it flourish. I enjoy working in my yard and my garden. I'm handy! My husband and I have done all of our home repairs and remodeling work.
What is your biggest goal for the year to come? My goal for this year is to find a few more galleries around the country to carry my work. For this reason, I've recently built a new web site: http://www.kberlin.com/ and I've worked diligently to improve my photography skills to create professional image.
Where else can we find your work? You can see my work at Raiford Gallery in Roswell, GA.
