Here’s a peak at how I work at my jeweler’s bench.  I often lay things out, write myself notes, and take pictures, so I don’t forget how I was thinking about making something.

Here’s one of those pieces finished:

Aren’t those cool?  That piece has yet to come together.

2014 was all about cutting back, reducing, making more time for art making and focusing. At one point I asked myself if I should stop making jewelry, in order to be more focused on fewer things.

The answer was no.  Jewelry, I can’t quit you.

Here’s how I focused though: I’m no longer doing retail shows.  I’m totally focused on selling wholesale to boutiques and doing trunk shows for my stores.  I have a store visit coming up soon to talk about a trunk show.  If you’re on the mailing list, you’ll be the first to hear about it!
