On June 26th, 2014 I officially launched my jewelry line at an event in West Hartford, CT. Hours prior, the only thing I kept thinking about were memories of when I would display and sell my jewelry in the past. While in high school, at festivals in Baltimore, MD and while in college, during our homecoming and various events on campus. The most vivid memory was back to the first time I ever displayed my jewelry in public, the summer of 2005, with my dad at an open market in Mansfield, CT. Just thinking back to how all these experiences were filled with lessons and mistakes I’ve made, but most importantly how the experiences prepared me for my official launch day. The biggest lesson I’ve taken away is to just START. With any passion, idea, or project you have, the biggest mountain to overcome is starting. Once you start, the rest will follow.
Here are a few pictures of my journey so far.
