How It All Began

For as long as I can remember, or at least since I first heard “Meet the Beatles” back in 1964, I have been trying to create things. Music was in there, writing, and a few other attempts to wrangle my muse. I am a capable guitar player who is quite content to play the tunes that come from within, and not have to worry about how to put emotion into what other people have written.

Some while back, jewelry making entered our cozy abode. I am married to Susan of Miss Poppy’s Boutique, you see. She and her work can be found at:

I observed her work, and my opinion was often asked. I found that I enjoyed putting a critical eye on handmade creations. I began finding myself on Etsy and Pinterest. That lead me to YouTube tutorials. Before I knew what was happening, I was borrowing her tools and fiddling around with wire. I love wire.

Soon I was buying “us” better tools than the child’s toys that are sold at Big Box craft stores. I was making my own findings, and I also became the exclusive handcrafted finding maker to Miss Poppy’s Boutique, when she uses them. From finding I leapt to complete pieces, and Gene’s Joint was born.
