About David Rowland

http://www.DavesWireCreations.artfire.com

I am a wire wrap jewelry artist. Before that I was an electrician, spent some time in the US Navy, was a cued speech transliterator for 2 years, worked as a landscaper, assistant manager at a greenhouse/nursery, worked for Home Depot for a bit, and have done stints working as a plumber, roofer, bricklayer, cowboy, maitre'd at a restaurant, and several odd jobs in between. I enjoyed being an electrician a lot, until my back started going bad, and I made the choice to get out of electrical work. Then, with money being low, I considered going back into the electrical field, and God made it very clear that was not where I was supposed to be, and if I went back into the electrical field, something very bad would happen. I listened to God. Now I am very happy to make jewelry for a living, although it does not pay as well as electrical work. This year has seen some drastic improvements in my jewelry business however. I have more of the tools I need to make the kind of jewelry I want to make. I've learned some new things, new methods, and made many new friends along the way.
