With an extensive background in design, Heather Wright has been handcrafting projects most of her life with a focus on journals in early 2007. Parched for change, she began making jewelry in early 2014 with simple ideas that grew into more elaborate designs incorporating her love for the Steampunk genre, nautical themes, and horror. In turn, she had developed a trademark style as a jewelry architect, always challenging herself to build each piece more unique than the last. This creative culmination and peaked public interest in her hometown of Flint, Michigan, led her to develop her newfound passion into a business. Thus, Scared Crow Steamworks was born.
