In 2009, I decided to quit my job and to pursue my dream of becoming a Jewelry Artist. Since then, I’ve been spending my time taking classes all across the United States where I’ve learned so many new techniques. I love color and the entire design process! I am now the Jewelry Artist and Designer of Polly Hendrickson Jewelry Design, where I make eclectic, artisan jewelry from materials like Sterling Silver, Copper, Bronze and Brass sheet metal, Lamp-work Glass Beads, Pearls, Crystals, and Stone. I have recently enjoyed adding Found Objects into my work, like old rusty keys, and paper with my favorite words and phrases. Just about every piece I make is one of a kind.
Each day, I am working hard at living with passion, and I am learning that “Everything happens for a reason” and “Everything is exactly the way it’s supposed to be”, are not just cliches! I’ve come to realize that life is short, and it’s vital to live each day doing what you love. I am so grateful for my talents and for my business!
I am also a HUGE Major League Baseball fan, and have recently enjoyed learning about the NFL and successfully playing Fantasy Football. When I’m not working, I’m the mom of three fabulous kids and three dogs, an Interior Designer (with a degree from the University of Arizona), a Craft Beer lover, always ready for excellent Sushi, a Cupcake taster, a hopeless Romantic, a Shopping aficionado, and I’m always in search of the perfect Margarita! Oh, and one more thing: It’s hard to beat a sunset at the beach with friends and a great glass of wine while listening to Jazz, Norah Jones, John Mayer, Dave Matthews, or Maroon 5.
