2016 is starting out as an unexpectedly introspective year. I've been spending most of my days thinking about what new pieces I will make, what new collections I will build, and what journey my jewelry will take me on in the months, weeks, and days ahead.
Tonight I turned to one of my favorite books, an autobiography by jeweler Alex Monroe, for some inspiration, some guidance, and a few laughs (if you have read "Two Turtle Doves" you will understand why I find him so clever.) I love Alex's explanations of his creative and technical processes, of his tools, and of the inspiration behind his work.
I was having so much fun reading that I completely lost track of writing my daily blog post until now. It is a great joy indeed to get lost in a good book.
My name is Judi and I make sustainable fine jewelry. I wake up happy every day because I'm able to do what I love for a living.
