Leslie Patterson
United States
Hello!
My name is Leslie.  I live in Georgia, USA.  I am a jewelry artist.  I am married to the love of my life, Scott.  We live in a cute little cottage with our two dogs, Sasha & Murphy.  Together we travel, backpacking, cycling, skiing, and swimming our way across the country.  And if there is an airplane leaving for anyplace fun, check the seats next to you.  We're liable to be in them!

Scott and I own a home services business.  As I've grown a little older (I said a little!), I've opened my mind to the creative part of me.  A couple of years ago I began experimenting with beading and jewelry making.  Then I was introduced to the art of wire work.  It changed my life.

Over the past two years I have worked hard to cultivate a business.  Unlike the first business, this one is motivated primarily by my love of my art.  I love to work.  I love the connection of sharing my love of jewelry with my clients.  There is nothing that compares to the feeling of pulling a piece of jewelry from my heart and having it make a connection with another person.  I believe that to be a bond of sorts.  It's what makes my soul smile.

And so I have the life I've always wanted.  A husband I love, two dogs I adore, and my art which feeds my soul.

I hope you will visit my online shop at www.smilingsoul.etsy.com
And, if you have a special idea in mind, I would love nothing better than pulling our inspiration together to create a piece especially for you.

Enjoy your day in good health and happiness.
Thank you for dropping in.
Leslie
