You have a dream. You work, you work, you work. Often in the dark and then once in awhile you want to come out of the cave and see the light? Connect. See who else is out there? You are nervous, you are unsure. Yet you realize you always forgot the promise-there is comfort in the light. Yesterday was a huge reminder of the beauty of community. Of the realization that there are others like you committed to the work of a dream. That you can gather together-work together and laugh together. Thank you to @metalandsmith for inviting us to be part of their first show. Trying something different is never easy. But you handled it all with calm and grace. Thank you @gemgossip @diamondsinthelibrary @liz_kantner @ashleylikesgems @athousandfacets @fortheloveofgems @browneyedtoast for making time to stopby and talk to us and play with us. Time is such a valuable currency. We really appreciate it. Thank you @julielambny and @turasugden for being delightful neighbors. Thank you @hannahblountjewelry @christinehuberdesign @danabronfman @jewelyrie @tapbytoddpownell @selinkent and the rest of the jewelry community. It was a pleasure to share space with you for a whole day. May the rest of the week help us all reap what we’ve sown together. A Story about Modern Day Jewelry in America. It was not in vain. #jewelrycommunity #gratitude #hustleandgrind #labor #harvest #blessed #storytellers #madeinamerica #newyorkcity #tuesdaymotivation #dreamers #musingsbylola (at New York, New York)
