Sheila Farny

Jewelry / Metal

A current resident of Steamboat Springs, when Sheila Farny lived in Telluride she couldn’t help but partake in the wonderful, varied classes offered by the Ah Haa School, which ignited her creativity and desire to create for no purpose other than to enjoy the moment. Silver jewelry became Sheila’s focus, from which she created her business, The Left Turn. The name harkens back to Sheila’s time operating Skyline Guest Ranch, when taking a right-hand turn out of the driveway meant going to town to run errands. A dear friend would say, “Take a left,’ which meant: no agenda, have fun, enjoy your time. As a result, The Left Turn jewelry has come to represent enjoying the ride, playing without limits, creating for no purpose, having no agenda and living in the moment. Sheila brings this same philosophy to the jewelry classes she teaches.

Sheila was very helpful and ran around to make sure we were all getting what we needed. She is a great instructor.

I had a great time and really want to do more of this kind of jewelry making!
