One of the experiences of having the privilege of being able to do something I love is showing my kids that their mom has a passion for something. I hope seeing me find happiness in this will encourage them to find their own passion someday. My teenage son is a little less interested in the jewelry itself but has always been very supportive and encouraging. My twin daughters, however, love to model the jewelry for me. They always let me know which pieces are their favorites and which ones are “sort of ok”. They sit at my desk with me and draw out their own designs while I sketch and ask me if I can make what they have drawn for the new collection. They are a huge help and I love that they’re a part of the work.
