Jewelry, a Story of Community, Friendship, and Perseverance.
There is something about the community of jewelry makers that defies definition. It is as strong as family and its roots go as deep as oaks and blood and waters and history. The friendships I have made in this “family” over the years will last for the rest of my days, and the people who make up this community will stop at nothing to help one another. I was reminded of this fact this week when I posted a blog post where I had images of me polishing with gloves on, and the community came out in force. I have always harped about safety in jewelry making, that one mistake or lack of attention can be devastating. Polishing with gloves on was something I started doing a few years ago, always knowing that it was risky and paying particular attention to where my hands were at all times, but y’all have convinced me to toss the gloves in the trash and figure another way of keeping my fingers cool and clean.
This group is Awesome, thank you for your “calling me out”.
