Angela took one of my silversmithing classes a while back and and she took off with her own unique designs. She has also started a business making and selling her work and has been getting many awards over the past few months!
I ran a little contest with previous class members submitting work and Angela won the contest! I am happy to feature her on my blog with her winning submission!
My name is Angela Carter. I have been blessed (formerly considered cursed,) with being my own unique individual. When I was a child, my music of choice was Dionne Warwick and Opera on my mom’s old radio/record player. I talked to everyone and anyone, constantly. My endless banter drove many adults to craziness. Much to my mother’s irritation, I never followed a pattern or recipe. Every project was uniquely mine, good or bad.
As an adult, I now know that my eccentricities are my assets and I share them freely with those who will listen. (Yes, I do still talk endlessly.) I have found that there are people who appreciate my unique view of the world, and I appreciate theirs. They help me grow as an artist and an individual.
Every project is still uniquely mine, and although I have learned to live in a world where Opera and Dionne Warwick do not coexist, I am still my defiant, independent, eccentric little self.
