Since graduating with a degree in Occupational Therapy, Carmen Aponte became more educated in the arts. She took a variety of courses that allowed her to expand her aesthetic horizons, thus finding joy in creating jewelry drawn from all the genres of art she had dabbled in before: painting, ceramics, metal arts, photography and rubber stamping. Carmen enjoys using nature, vintage items, wire, and beads from all over the world. Carmen’s inspiration has combined techniques and ideas, incorporating little sparkling components into intricate one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry for her business selling jewelry to individual customers, Fine Art galleries, and Art Shows.
“My heart and soul feel true and at peace when I create something.
The process of creating, is life's journey. You gotta have art!" ...Carmen
