I’m not going to lie to you – I’ve tried starting a blog a couple of times now. Now, I’m not saying I tried and failed. I just got distracted and let it sit on the back burner, always knowing that one day I would start again.
I must admit that I love sharing my ideas and inspiration. I love to create and I love crafts. Hence me starting a handmade jewelry company. DIY is my thing! Plus I cook every night for my husband and me. I like to think that if I wasn’t making jewelry I might be doing something with food. I absolutely love clothes and putting together outfit ideas. I live on a small island and I raise chickens. But the point is, I want to share all that I make, cook, and everything in between.
Recently I shared my process of how I make a simple stacking ring on my insta stories. I’m proud to say that it was quite the hit. So many of my followers were private messaging me and telling me how amazing and interesting it was to learn the process behind what I do. I think we need more of that in the world. People need to be educated on how our jewelry, our clothes, and our day to day objects are made. The thing that I have always loved about hand made pieces is the intimacy that shares with the maker. I want to share that. There’s so much that goes into having a small creative business. There are ups, and there are downs. I’ve learned a lot along the way. I’m proud of where I am today, but it wasn’t without a lot of hard work and dedication. I hope that by telling my story I can inspire you to follow your dreams.
So this is me, sharing with you all – my process. My day to day life. From behind the scenes of owning a small business and living on a small island. To outfits that go with the jewelry I make and the food that goes on my table. I still have a long way to go in my little business and I hope you’ll be along for the journey.
