Peaceful Woods Inspires Fairywings Jewelry
Nancy Hatch, designer and owner of Fairywings Jewelry and Gems , lives surrounded by woods in the country outside of Knoxville.
“My business is out of our home, which I absolutely love,” Nancy said. “We are surrounded by woods and it is very peaceful, just what I need for inspiration.”
Nancy started making jewelry about 12 years ago and has grown her skills to allow her to create the beautiful design she envisions.
“I began with simple designs using premade settings and graduated to setting the gemstones myself,” Nancy said. She took classes from Larry Niday, a metalsmith and artist in Knoxville. She also took several classes at Fishlips3 in Valley Junction in Des Moines, Iowa.
“I love the classes because you learn so much just meeting people that have done this for years,” Nancy said. “My jewelry has developed over the years to where it actually has a certain style to it—simple with an earthy quality.”
Nancy Hatch’s creations are available on www.fairywingsjewelryandgems.com and on Etsy. They can also seen at Catiri’s Art Oasis in Amana, Iowa. Customers can also make a private appointment to come to her home or Nancy will come to yours.
