Odin O

Jewelry Artist, Writer, Game Dev

Greetings!

I am a self-proclaimed Renaissance Man that has dabbled in practically anything and everything. My passions are currently focused in Creative Writing, as well as handmade Jewelry making.

I have been creating jewelry for over twelve years, and teaching others for six years at local bead shops, as well as creating digital PDF and video tutorials.

My formal education focused on Game Development, and I have found a creative outlet designing systems and lore for pen and paper RPGs such as Dungeons and Dragons.

Join me for lessons in Jewelry Making and improving your Dungeon Design skills as a Game Master for pen and paper RPGs.

I also have fun with fountain pens, and if you want to see some of my practice fails, be sure to follow me on Instagram. I also post a lot of pictures of my kitties....so that is certainly motivation.

You can find samples of my jewelry making on Facebook at my alter persona Odin's Bead Hall.

Samples of my silly writings can be found on my personal blog at:
