If you’ve ever wanted to take a creative passion you have and make money doing it, listen to this interview with Vanessa Walilko, creator of Kali Butterfly, a jewelry business. Vanessa explains how she did it and how you can too on this episode of the How to Quit Working Show.
Vanessa has also been teaching chainmail jewelry classes for over 8 years. She’s taught hundreds of students around the US and in Canada the joy of creating jewelry with their own hands. She released her first book, Chain Mail + Color in March of this year. The book features 20 pieces inspired by her production jewelry line, and the projects all incorporate anodized aluminum components.
Six years ago, Vanessa quit her job and devoted her life to doing the thing she loves most: making jewelry. And she’s delighted that thousands of her pieces exist in the hands of customers around the world.
