I've got a few things I'm working on today. I'm putting some beautiful Tourmaline 2.5mm gemstones into the eyes of a little owl that I have fallen in love with. I'm also doing some carving to finalize the size for some pendants that I'm making. But what I'm doing RIGHT NOW is trying to get my head around revamping my website. Shifting things around and starting a new direction. It was so long ago that I built this site that I've forgotten how it's all done. So I thought the best way to get my feet wet was to at least put in a new blog post.
Why the new direction? Sustainability! For several years now I have been working off ideas that clients have provided as well as pieces that I have dreamed up as a result of learning new techniques. This year it is about building a new footprint for my business. I am fine-tuning my work and pulling in the reins a little as tonwhat my look is. I am sure I will still have miscellaneous pieces that are wim and fancy but hopefully I will be working toward something that I can sustain and that can sustain me.
In truth, I am working on finding my way out of the basements of Broadway Theatres! Wish me luck!
I started my journey into jewelry making in 2005 while I was working in the Berkshires in Massachusetts, an area inundated with amazing artisans. I started with glass, which led to silver, which led to inlay, which led to joy.
