A few months ago, I mentioned in a post that there was something special I wanted to announce. It was in reference to a special project that I have been working on: starting a jewelry line of my own (!).

The past year has been a whirlwind of experiences for me, coupled with emotions and new knowledge. I've had thoughts of starting my own jewelry line for some time because I have always wanted to share my creations with others who have a similar artistic vision. I would be lying, however, if I said that I did not have any doubts or insecurities about opening this shop and all the stress packaged with it -- it's all certainly not without some existential construct building in my head.

But, I've learned that there will always be some level of uncertainty in my life, especially when dealing with something so intimately connected to me. These obstacles exist to challenge your persistence.



I've seen this quote featured in several places on the internet, and it's something that really resonates with me. It's empowering to know that I could do almost anything at this very moment, if not physically, then certainly through my thoughts.

After much reflection, I've decided that this project is simply too exciting and fulfilling to let go of. So, here I am, making an announcement that I will be opening my own jewelry shop!

This project truly is an extension of who I am, and my hope is that you will find a part of you in it, too.

Please stay tuned here for updates on my process and the moments leading up to the eventual opening of the shop.
