Tidbits and a moral…
August 26, 2008 § 5 Comments
I’ve returned to the world of school, to the tech college. After spending time with Don Norris, who taught me quite a bit about silversmithing and jewelry work, I decided to head back. And, as luck would have it, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College happens to have a good, solid program for jewelry design, fabrication and repair.
Not only will I improve my knowledge and skill, I will have more tools to explore. I look forward to working with the instructors I have…they have a good reputation and are good people to work with. My husband and I are hoping to find, through this time in school, to set up a public access/club access for a local art studio we’re planning.
We’re also taking time to focus on our customers and what they need. Each customer has an entry in our Special Dates and Days database. We include personal information, dates to remember, names aand addresses of anyone they might like to have reminded of said dates (some have listed themselves to be reminded of anniversary, etc.). In it we include information on what their gift recipient has had his/her eye on, what gifts are connected to certain dates, etc. Putting this together has been a large undertaking. And while I had hopes of the information being entered from several websites, it is only available to those who purchase or work with our company.
And the moral I’m sharing is to not put off for tomorrow what can be done today. I have not spent as much time drawing as I should have. And drawing is not something to be rushed. So I’m off…and those of you working with me on custom jewelry will probably notice a big difference in my sketches as well as the software I use to scan it and then send it out.
Enjoy the day!
