Howdy! We're Lisa and Anthony Turano, and Nesting Nomad Enterprises, LLC is our little business. We've been selling skeleton key replicas and other jewelry-making supplies over at our Etsy shop (and other locations) since January of 2011 - and Lisa has been making her handcrafted jewelry for many years. (There's an exciting new jewelry project in the works, so check back for details soon!)
Lisa's story: After working in the bookkeeping and accounting world for many years, Lisa began making jewelry as a hobby (to exercise her right brain, after days spent playing with numbers). This turned into a little side business, and, well, here we are today.
Anthony's story: Anthony has pedigrees in biology and brewing, and is currently a proud brewer at Walking Tree Brewery. We're still figuring out how to incorporate his specialized skills into jewelry making, but in the meantime our workshop is well stocked with homebrew! :-)
Why "Nesting Nomad"?
Well, between the two of us, we've lived in dozens of homes, in eleven states (in addition to wandering the globe on many extended travel adventures over the years). We're really working on settling down and growing some roots. (Get it? Nesting Nomad?) Currently you can find us nestled in lovely Vero Beach, Florida.
A nomad I will remain for life, in love with distant and uncharted places.
