Where did the time go?

It's November already! I had very busy September with school starting and preparing for shows in Sag Harbor and Westhampton Beach.
Holiday shows are just around the corner.
I'm excited for the opportunity to participate in a fundraiser for the Long Island 2 day walk for breast cancer. I designing a necklace to raffled off December!

That's what it's been like for the past 3 days - sort of. I lost my voice for no apparent reason. Probably allergies. Treatment - no talking, salt water gargle, lots of tea with honey. This is tough!

I can't teach like this and I feel fine otherwise. It feels a bit like I'm playing hookey.

On the plus side, I've been able to complete a few projects and and create some, fun new designs for the trunk show Saturday. Fingers crossed my voice will be better - I love to talk about my work with patrons.

Check out this sweet set for a young dad to give to his wife for her first Mother's day...

The baby's was born in July so we have rubies, pearls and sterling silver. I love the faceted barrel ruby - just might have to go back to Wall Street Beads to get one for myself!

Isn't the baby's bracelet adorable!

What's in a name???

So here I am! My very first blog post. Can't say I'll be very faithful or even interesting.
My business name "Gems By Jeanne Marie" came about after discussion with my colleagues -other first grade teachers. That would explain the cutesy, alliterative nature. As the business expands and I'm considering more sophisticated markets, I wonder if I should change it...
