The New Now

All the BEST in the new



All the best in the new NOW. I mean that honestly, and in the very best sense. But, also—honestly—it's all I can seem to manage these days. I wish I could say it was due to a very calm, serene sense-of-self-as-the-present-moment, but it's more an unenviable look-at-this-important-new-thing-in-front-of-me-I-guess-I'll-drop-everything-and-do-THAT-now... because I am very busy.

Which is great. Truly. I'm still filling the last of the orders I took over the holidays, ecstatic about every single one. But there is so much more involved with building a business, even IF people already want what you have to offer (thank you all so very, very much!) that I find myself wishing I were two or three people... and that at least one of those people had a solid business degree.

It's all very exciting, though. I first started selling my jewelry last summer, fortunate to have been included in ten fantastic art/design venues in the past six months. The latest, and largest, of these was the Renegade Holiday SF fair:

My lovely assistant, Liza, helping to spread the gospel of the mesh.

I met so many great people. We were this busy most of the weekend!

With those shows and my first holiday season under my belt, I gratefully report that I'm very encouraged by the response! And I've learned so much—mostly about how much I have to learn...

For those of you who don't know, I'm a one-woman-band over here. Jewelry, graphics, web design, packaging, marketing, show displays, styling, and photography... I really love doing it all.

Here's to an exciting 2012 with new mesh jewelry designs! 

And, of course, whatever YOU have planned...
