Jess Is The Name and Jewelry Is My Game

Hey all, I just want to write a quick blog post to introduce myself.

My name is Jessica Dickinson and I’m passionate about jewelry. I’ve been blogging about and making all kinds of jewelry for some time now.

My Life

I started making bracelets out of random things around the house when I was 6. My mom was the weird mom at my school, wearing all kinds of eclectic items. I remember her wearing aluminum foil bangles and a dental floss necklace with Fruit Loops at the end of it.

I appreciated her wearing my fantastic creations because it made me feel like a real designer. She was always so supportive in my love for necklaces, bracelets, anklets, rings, earrings, and anything else you could think of. I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive mom.

If you would have seen the things I had her wearing in public, you’d know what I mean. Unfortunately, smartphones didn’t exit back then so I don’t have any pictures handy.

I probably could get her to dig some up from an old stack of prints, but I’m not sure that’s the kind of thing she wants me to put online for the world to see. Having to look like that in public was bad enough!

Then I Started Blogging

As I got older I took to the internet to express my love for trinkets. I began blogging on the free blog sites like geocities and blogspot. I felt really limited with those sites which led me to creating my own real website.

Before I knew it, I had a nice website that I had build myself. This is actually my second website. I got tired of my first one and decided to start over and rebrand. And that’s how I got to where I am and how this site that you’re reading came into existence.
