February 13,2016

Wow its been over 3 years since my last blog. Many may think that I left the Jewelry that I truly with unusual out of the norm events in 2012. Truth be told, i had to re-calibrate and satisfy my need of education in Jewelry. I was a self taught jewelry designer and I felt that the tools that a proper education offers will help me grow and achieve my goals. In the over 3 years of my partial absence I took courses in bench jewelry, rendering, cad cam and gemology. I am truly best to have been give the best instructors in this journey. I am proud to say that I am now a Graduate Gemologist from GIA and that I just won an award- Fashion award at the International Pearl Design Competition 2015-2016 by the Cultured Pearl Association of America. The necklace is called "JOSIE" named after my mom. My mom introduced me to the work of jewelry through her love of buying them, she also gave me my first set of pearls. My mother's favorite color is red hence the red stones on the necklace. This piece was displayed at the AGTA booth and will be displayed again at the JCK show (CPAA booth)

Dreams do come true =)
