My name is Allison Beth Cooling, and I am a craft addict! I am a Chicago-based graphic designer, photographer and jewelry artist. I started my blog, The Quiet Lion, in the summer of 2011. My blog is devoted to DIY-ing jewelry using all types of techniques and materials. My personal design aesthetic focuses on chic, bohemian pieces that can be mixed and matched (I love layering jewelry!) to create unique, eclectic looks!
