Tonight I received an email from a nice woman who had bought a hammered Current Bangle from Shell Designs in Provincetown. Awesome. When emailing her back to say thank you, it made me think: she was not just buying a piece of my jewelry, she was also putting stock into my career as a goldsmith. And so, with this thought in mind I replied,
"Thank you for the kind words. I have been really lucky with the bangles this season,
so I anticipate making more. Every bit helps, and is recycled into making goldsmithing my

I also want to say thank you. I am putting most of my energy this summer into making this a full time job, and most of that funding comes from the sales. And by most Ill go back to that %90 again. Like I mentioned above, I will be selling my wares in an artisan shack at the end of MacMillan pier from September 21st - October 5th. I'm pretty excited. If anyone asks where I am around then, please send them my way. It will be interesting to see what sells, what doesn't, and what to take note on for the following season.
Expect a few new designs, cleat earrings, some contemporary anchors for men, and hopefully more bangles.
Thank you for your patience and your kindness,
