"I became a metalsmith when I was traveling through Mexico during my Saturn return. While living in Chiapas, the local Chiapanecan artisans taught me how to make jewelry with limited tools. I learned how to weave a chain with a two-by-four and a nail, while using seven fingers. I also learned how to manipulate coral with boiling water and a lighter. These experiences sparked different synapses in my brain that ultimately changed my fate and lead me to become a jeweler." - Francesca Zumbo
