What I Did On My Summer Vacation...
Don't worry, I promise this blog post wont actually be one of those BORING essays that every school aged child has to write when they go back to school, reducing their summer of freedom and folly to a bland 500 word essay. Instead, I hope to enthrall you with fascinating tales of victory and defeat, learning and exploration. Okay, not really-my summer was no where near as dramatic as the last sentence seems to indicate. However, I've HAVE worked like a crazy person, learned A WHOLE LOT, and made some great headway in establishing Sweet Sincerity Jewelry as my MORE-than-40-hours-a-week-full-time job. So prepare to be impressed. Ha ha ha, not really.
Another event that has severely impacted my motivation to blog and list new things on the "interwebs," as my hilarious metal-smithing teacher calls it, is that my lovely bff baby sister got a NEW not-so-part-time job as a chef at a local pub. I'm really excited for her to have a job that she really likes, but that of course means that I'm left all by my lonesome to get motivated to work, blog, and produce. Yeah....I really miss her. LOL. But she's never been too busy to come and support Sweet Sincerity Jewelry despite her busy schedule. Hooray for that!
In other, more balanced/less insane news, I've started a collaborative jewelry line with my metal-smithing teacher, that is now being shown in the Maine Jewelry and Art Gallery!!!! How exciting is that? The line that we are doing together is called "Sweet Oceanside" and consists of sea glass, pearls, shells, and other ocean-y type elements. The shells and sea glass have been picked off the beaches of Maine by our own family and friends. Isn't that neat? Last Friday, I also put some Sweet Sincerity Jewelry on display in the Gallery. If you are in the area, please go check it out! Maine Jewelry and Art is located in the heart of Downtown Bangor, diagonally across from the Bangor Public Library on Harlow Street. I can't believe I have anything in a gallery! I feel so special...BLUSH! It feels good to know that I've learned so much that I can now call myself a metal-smith!
