Hello and Welcome to my site.
Here you will find the results of my finding my"encore career", reinvigorating an existing hobby and expanding a new business.
My older sister and I currently have a little shop on Etsy where we sell jewelry that we have designed and made. Our shop is named "Two Blue Pearls." We started making jewelry as a way to cope together after losing our father very unexpectedly. Please check out our shop here. In my blog I want to showcase the creative process for our jewelry pieces.
I have a calligraphy business! I did calligraphy in high school and loved it. Christmas 2020 my daughter bought me a calligraphy set. Playing with the set made me remember how much I enjoyed lettering. I bought some supplies, took some online courses and dove right in. I have found it so fulfilling I have chosen to be a Calligrapher as my encore career.
More about me:
I have been married for 30 years and have two children. Our son is 26 and works in fashion. Our daughter is 22 and is finishing up her final year of University. She is the one who came up with the name for my new business, "Flourished by Grace."
I co-managed a family business for over 25 years. The company stopped operating in 2021 so I started my own calligraphy business.
I lived overseas for half my life (Taiwan and Japan) but am now based in Nevada. I am extremely fortunate that I was able to travel extensively all over the world with my family. All my travels have really influenced my art and my worldview.
I love reading and baking desserts. I need to start my mornings with a good cappuccino. I love the outdoors and feel so energized walking or hiking in fresh air.
I am planning a weekly newsletter. I want it to showcase projects and jewelry I am working on. You will get updates on new posts and special content that is only available to my subscribers. So please click below.
