At each and every bra workshop, details count. Details, details, details. The fabric and trims, the food, the decor – I try as much as I can to have it all “go”. Included in that are the goody bags. No party – and my workshops ARE a party – would be complete without a goody bag. Amirite or amirite? I AM RIGHT! I liked them when I was 5-years-old and as I approach 30, I still like me a goody bag.
At last weekend’s workshop, I was super excited to partner with Rustic Gem jewelry. Based in California, it is an online shop offering super cute and affordable jewelry. Think tassel necklaces and earrings and vintage style rings. Similar to my career path, Tracy, the owner, spent many years in the corporate world . She worked in human resources, including many years providing HR consulting and leadership to non-profit organizations. She believed this was her calling until she was put on bed-rest for 10 weeks during her pregnancy with her 2nd son. During this time, she went back to one of her favorite hobbies – making jewelry. A good friend, Charyl, kept her lots of company during this time and together, they talked – obvi! -and made lots and lots of jewelry.
After her son was born, Tracy realized her passion was being creative and spending time with her children. So she and Charyl opened Rustic Gem. It was scary but fulfilling career change for Tracy and she takes great pleasure in being able to make beautiful jewelry while also being able to spend time with her kids. As someone who went through that same career change last year, I am Tracy’s biggest cheerleader and was so happy to have her a part of the workshop.
Christina, who traveled all the way from California to attend, was the lucky winner of this safety pin necklace. So cute, right? I want one! Tracy also gifted me a pair of tassel earrings, similar one here, that I wore during the class. Thank you Tracy!
