Beautiful Balance

Good Tuesday Morning to all!

If you haven't checked in lately, be sure to visit my website http://www.bohemianglitz.com/ not only am I creating new designs but I have a whole new web layout! It is crisp, pleasing to the eye and as the days move forward so are we. Look for upcoming improvements such as drop down menus, live links, new shipping options and more!

Sometimes when you are the "do-it-all" things like computer work is last to get done. Unless, of course computers are your passion. My passion happens to be jewelry first, beads second. Jewelry only comes in first since my love of it began at a very early age. I remember at around the age of 12 my mother having some sort of home party for tupperware, avon or something of that nature. Honestly, I can't remember what the party was for. All I can remember is I was able to wear the most beautiful rhinestone bracelet that I had ever seen. Turns out, this was all part of a memory game.

Here's basically what went on: I was dressed in my "finery" (as fine as I could get at 12) with the fancy rhinestone bracelet on my wrist and I paraded around our living room carrying a round tray with objects laying on it. I had to go by each person in the room and let them look at the tray then, each guest had to try and list as many things on thier notepad that they could remember seeing. The catch here was the bracelet was an object they should have noted. I, of course, did not know this and had my hand under the tray part of the time.

I am sure there were other times even before that where jewelry was introduced to me since my mother had a love for it also. I grew up in the 80's and had all the big hoops and hair to prove it. Layered colors, multiple bracelets and lace anklet socks! I think what I really enjoyed the most was the fact that there was this attitude that "anything goes". To this day I push myself to think outside of the box with designs in every aspect.

Like most artists, we focus more on creating the art than creating a business. When beautiful art is created I believe people will take notice. So, in closing this month is balance month. I am learning new computer skills, taking better pictures and creating new designs. I am sincerely trying to do it all. Not only am I the designer and creator of jewelry but since I write the descriptions and photograph them I do a lot of computer work!

In addition to my growing business, I am a stay at home mother, a wife and all that it entails. I also have furry critters to care for. More than one of us needs special care and attention. I hope that you enjoy all the improvements happening on http://www.bohemianglitz.com/ and my postings here.

Balance and happiness to all!
