Since I cleaned my shop there was a hurricane/super storm that bore my name. I got the little swipe thing to attach to my iPhone so I can accept credit cards; there was a Christmas sale at my theatre and a few private showings and I am now basically cleaned out of stock. I got business cards and now when people notice the jewelry I wear I hand them a card.
Those cards have my web address (remember I bought my domain name) but I quickly realized that I can't send people to my website if there is nothing there. So after a few mad days of multitasking, the rest of the website is now up and running and I am in the process of connecting it to my ETSY site so purchases can be made online.
I connected with Judith Foster who is not only an instructor at Ghost Ranch but also and more importantly supports herself as a jewelry designer. I am flying out to work with her for a two day intensive which could lead me in any number of directions - all of which are exciting and thrilling.
It is a beautiful day in Manhattan and I am on the 7 train heading to Queens to celebrate Thanksgiving with friends of over 20 years. To say I have a lot to be thankful for this season is a massive understatement. May all of you find your joy and follow it..........
and dare to be inspired - wherever you are.
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.
