London Pickett of Outta Sight has been making jewelry for approximately eight years. She began making jewelry after she visited and made a pair of earrings at "The Bead Bar" for a Ladies Night Out. London continued to have design ideas and began frequenting the shop. Making jewelry became therapy for her.
Making jewelry is a bit difficult for London but that doesn't stop her. London is blind in her left eye. Fortunately, she sees color and shapes with the little vision she has in her right eye. With the help of good lighting, a magnifying glass and most of all, determination come, London is able to create wonderful handcrafted pieces.
Since discovering her passion for jewelry making, London has sold her designs in retail stores and by word of mouth. Recently she decided to open shops online and currently can be found on Artfire, Etsy and Zibbet.
