Let me introduce myself... My name is Jennifer Gastelum and I am the owner and manager at Jewelry Artist Supply. We opened our doors on 12/12/12 and have been growing every day!
A bit about myself...I was introduced to the exciting world of metal clay in 2007 when I decided, on a whim, to take a class at the community college with my mother. I have taken classes in lampworking and beading before but I wanted something new to add to my designs. My education has continued throughout the years with Lyle Rayfield, a Senior Instructor for Art Clay and Rio Rewards PMC Certified Artisan, in Tucson, Arizona. In 2007, I became a Level One Certified Instructor for Art Clay and in 2014 I received my Senior Certification. I also obtained my Level III certification with PMC Connection in 2014. I am fortunate to live in Tucson, Arizona and we regularly have awesome trainers that come to town every February with the Gem and Mineral Show.
Since 1995, I have worked in the field of law enforcement. After many years in a very stressful and dangerous job I have decided to make major changes in my life and do what I love. Jewelry Artist Supply is providing a very exciting opportunity to create a business in which we will provide the best customer service and superior products for artists. New products will be added on a continual basis as the ever expanding field of metal clay evolves.
Any suggestions or comments are welcome. We strive to make Jewelry Artist Supply your preferred online metal clay supply store!
Create & Inspire,
Jennifer Gastelum, Owner
