My open house was this past weekend and it didn’t go nearly as well as I had hoped. I don’t know if I should have done something different for marketing or the timing was off or people just didn’t have time or money. At any rate it has me really thinking about the jewelry business. Should I keep doing it? Should I stop making jewelry? Should I just teach classes? All these thoughts just tumbling around in my head. Perhaps I will figure it all out soon enough. In the meantime I am going to try and spend as much time in the studio as possible.
I had a custom order placed ages ago. It took a while to get the rubies in as they were ordered first and then cut by the cutters in India. My customer has been so patient and I am really hoping she likes what I have come up with. This is a gift for her 40th anniversary and Ruby is the stone for the 40th. The rubies in this piece are 4mm and 6 mm. They are so pretty. The gem cutter did a fantastic job on them and even the backs are polished, which is rarely the case with most gem cutters.
