First and foremost, Welcome, Bienvenidos, Bienvenue, Benvenuti, Willkommen, Namaste to LJD.Jewelry and my new Blog!
I’m a designer – not a writer
I must start with this disclaimer : I.AM.NOT.A.WRITER.PERIOD! I am a professional designer with a degree in design and product development. I have spent my entire life, drawing and sketching as a way to communicate my ideas, feelings, philosophy, and just basically expressing my view of the world.
Apparently, Google and SEO prefer blogs and words…soooooooooo…with that being said, I shall blog!
However, I promise you this: This will be the last time it is all about “me.” I’ll use videos, photos and just as few words as possible in the upcoming posts. I want this to be about “YOU!” So without further ado, this is the plan…I’ll continue to do what I do best, which is draw and design jewelry. In the blog, I’ll expose you to the birthing process of that jewelry, and in doing so, I’ll tell you their “stories.”
Every piece has a story
The pieces that you purchase on LJD.Jewelry are not just cookie-cutter, mass-produced wearables but are adornments, each the result of many talented hands and hearts. It’s their sweat and the long painstaking hours resulting in calloused hands and sore backs that help to create these pieces. And along the way there are a multitude of adventures in exotic places. You’ll meet fascinating people and learn of mines that few have rarely seen.
This is the exciting journey evolving long before your piece arrives at your home and finds its place in your jewelry box. I want you to know these stories. And I want your stories to be added to the history of your chosen pieces.
My wish is that the pieces I create be worn, loved, and cherished whilst you continue that story…
