On May 6th we previewed my premiere jewelry collection in Dallas at my studio and coupled it with a tour of my husband's garden. Hundreds of people came to shop and saunter through the garden with a glass of wine. It was a whirlwind and the culmination of 3 years of very hard work.
We sold 5 times the amount of jewelry we anticipated, hit the ground running and haven't stopped. Within the first week the collection was mentioned in an article on Dallas women jewelry designers in WW Daily. Not bad for our first collection! This was followed by another article in Dallas's FD Luxe. The phones are ringing and we are rushing to launch our e-commerce site by mid June.
I guess I can now finally call myself a jewelry designer. I've been hedging on that moniker for awhile.
