Goldlight Jewelers Grand Opening Reception

goldlightopening_blog

This spring I teamed up with fellow designers Luana Coonen and Sharon Zimmerman to open a shared jewelry studio in the heart of downtown San Francisco. After a few busy months getting settled into this new shop, we are so happy to finally open our doors for a grand opening reception.

The term Goldlight in our name, Goldlight Studios, refers to the gorgeous morning light which pours in through our 5th floor windows. It was the first thing we fell in love with about the shop, and has been the warmest welcome as we show up to work each day.

We hope you’ll join us for drinks, bites, and a personalized tour of all the fancy tools during our opening reception. The fun takes place next Saturday, June 7th from 4-8pm.

Introducing the New Studio!

Here we are, ten weeks into the new year and I find myself dreadfully behind on updates. Apologies! I promise the news is well worth the wait.

The last few months have been chock full of opportunity, growth, and travels. A highlight reel of these new developments is in the works, but in the meantime I’d like to announce one of the larger developments with you: a new studio!

Here’s a peek at our new space in all of its rustic glory. The 750sq ft space in downtown San Francisco is transforming into a stellar workshop, office and showroom before our very eyes. I’m so grateful to have joined forces with my two new shop mates, Sharon Zimmerman and Luana Coonen, in order to make this dream space a reality. These incredible women are hard working and so creative, I’m beyond lucky to rub elbows with them daily.

To celebrate the new move, introduce ourselves, and give my old shop it’s “last hurrah”, we’re hosting a Trunk Show and Sample Sale this Sunday from 12-4pm. We’ll be pouring mimosas and showcasing a great variety of work…Come say ‘hello!’

Inertia

I’m not one to declare resolutions at the start of each new year, but in December of 2012 I found myself scribbling in an old green-papered notebook the elements of my life in need of change. At the time things were tilting towards chaotic. I was stretched too thin between an overly-ambitious day job and devoting as much TLC as I could to my fledgeling business. The countdown for our wedding day had just dipped below 6 months. I was clamoring for a roadmap to guide me through the coming months.

This list was a hefty one. It ran the gamut of things I needed to do (“quit day job”), wanted to do (“write more emails to friends and family just because“) and the things I owed it to myself to make time for (“attend 14 week business planning course at Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center”). Some items were very personal. Some touched on my desire to become a happier, healthier person as well as a devoted future wife. Other pledges promised myself more time off and creative freedom. I poured my heart onto the pages and found myself equally overwhelmed and excited at the possibility of completing it.

A month ago I revisited the list and discovered there was still work to do. As easily as old goals were checked off, a fresh one eagerly appeared. Things were shifting, evolving, moving forward. There will always be work to do. My list, it seems, was never the sum of it’s singular resolutions. Instead it was a promise to find momentum and to do everything I could to keep it rolling.

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you all for this wonderful year. I wish each of you the strength to achieve your own momentum in 2014.
