We have an important update about our lives and the business! Mom (you know her as Sheila) is taking on a new temporary job in Tucson, Arizona--starting soon! In the meantime, I'll be doing the blog posts so you might see new subjects or sense a different style, so that's what's up! A couple of cool things about this change is that with mom living in Tucson, I'll have a place to stay when I go to work and shop the gem show there next year! Also, it gives me a chance to get to know all our friends and readers better, so I do hope you'll comment often and dialogue with me.
i'd like to launch my new role (until now I've been behind the scenes as our resident jewelry designer and gem consultant) by finding out more about you and your interests. Please take just a few moments to respond to some quick questions--
1. What did you sign up for our newsletter? What do you enjoy about it. And what would you like to see more of?
2. What is your particular passion/passtime/occupation? Are you a jewelry designer, a beading enthusiast, a metalsmith, or just someone who enjoys beautiful handcrafted jewelry? Tell us your story!
3. If you are someone who makes/sells jewelry, would you be interested in having us do a feature on you and your work? If so, please let us know!
4. Please consider sharing something specific about how you came to love beads, gems, adornments, and/or your particular craft, hobby or profession related to jewelry.
Thank you so much, and thanks again for joining us here. We truly appreciate your interest and participation, and look forward to hearing from you!!
Shannon Amalia Schreiber, Co-Owner of The Bead
