Yesterday’s spring spruce-up trunk show, hosted by Casa Home Decor, was great fun. I really appreciate Nadine Miller inviting me and my baubles to come by. We shared space with her sleek felt home accessories, like this gorgeous storage bag.



Expanding a small business is scary and I can’t say enough good things about all the people who, like Nadine, have been helping me along the way. Like the friends, and friends-of-friends, who pass out my business cards when people comment on their jewellery. Or the people who “like” my Facebook page and make sure more people see my gems. If you retweeted shots of my photos in Twitter — thank you, too!

Yesterday I met people who heard about my trunk show through my friends at Jacqueline Conoir, the fashion design house. Other new customers arrived courtesy of my favourite manicurist Edita, at Nails By, who has very kindly been handing out my cards (as well as rescuing my nails).

I’ve been overwhelmed by their generosity. Some days I can’t believe how lucky I am to have stumbled into such a wonderful community.
