1st Year of Business Done and Dusted

This time last year I was getting my tools together, going over my plan for the year and preparing to embark on an adventure that would change my life. Nerves and excitement were all I was feeling. Oh, and hope, lots of hope.

One year done and looking back on 2014, I see that it was more of a roller coaster then a sedate cruise through the months. The highs were exhilarating; with my first major diamond deal right off the bat, a few engagement and wedding rings throughout the year and some markets to spice things up. The lows were nerve wracking; with a couple stressful times thrown into the year to keep things interesting. However, there was never a dull moment and I could never claim to be bored.

With us already into our third week of 2015 and my work schedule filling up quickly with new plans for stock, shows, offers and sales; I can see that 2015 is going to follow the lead of 2014 and keep life exciting.

Before I start posting new pieces of jewellery for 2015, I need to update you on what kept me so busy near the end of last year.
