When Heartlandia Woods jewelry designer, Joel Cash, approached me to photograph his wood products for his website, I was elated. Joel is a husband and father of two, who chose to go against the grain of the world's expectations. He recently went back to school to follow his dreams of becoming an accomplished artist, painter, and jewelry maker. Although he is older than some of his professors, Joel's energy and personality has him fitting right in with his peers. As a senior, Joel is launching his line of wooden designer jewelry and wood products. With over 40+ unique designs of wooden rings and earrings, his products are already a hot commodity at his university and surrounding community. We'll be sure to share a link to his incredible work when the site goes live!
