On the fly, Cheryl taught herself everything about the business and craft of jewelry-making. She called on creative friends for advice, and made a lot of mistakes along the way. In 2009, she left her 9-5 graphic design job to pursue Cloud+Lolly full time. Cheryl is amazed, still, that she gets to be creative and make money doing it. Her Cloud+Lolly line is composed of stylish, unique and vintage-style elements. Every piece is a work of art, made from new, vintage and found elements, base metals, and many happy accidents.
