Before putting all her time into jewelry, Hamilton worked for 30 years in dentistry and said that in an odd way, those skills helped her when she transitioned to making jewelry.

“I guess you could kind of say that I did artwork in the mouth,” Hamilton said, explaining that once she got her expanded duties, she was able to place fillings. “At the state board exam, they drilled that you have to know the anatomy of the tooth, and they want that tooth to look like a tooth when you’re done with that filling.”
When it comes to the designs she creates, Hamilton doesn’t sketch them out, but works from the image she creates in her mind.
“And then there’s some pieces I have in mind what I want it to look like and it comes out totally different, and I’ll like that, too,” she said.

The name One Four 925 isn’t just a string of numbers, it has a unique meaning behind it.
“One Four 925 stands for gold (14) and silver (925),” Hamilton explained. “We use numbers every day so I thought it would be easy for one to remember.”
In the future, Hamilton hopes to learn how to cast rings, which would allow her to expand the designs she offers.
