Hello! I am an independent jewelry designer based out of New York City. I design and create everything myself in my small studio in Brooklyn, and have my metal casting completed at small family businesses. I do all the wax carving, acid-etching, resin casting, finishing, soldering, sawing, and polishing myself.
I am obviously a lover of wildlife and animals, and also hold a Class I NY State Wildlife Rehabilitator license. Working with wildlife is tremendously rewarding and informs my work a great deal. I am currently on the board of directors for Urban Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitation, here in NYC.
I am also very involved with the local small craft business community via Etsy, and the Etsy NY Team. Please check out my shop there as well! www.jtopolski.etsy.com
