I won an award!

I won an award!

And the prize is amazing!

sailorgirl award

Oh wow! I can't believe it! I'm overwhelmed with gratitude to win! I'd like to thank everyone who voted for me! 

It's been quite a ride this past 2 years hasn't it? Being a small business owner has been ... challenging ... I have pivoted, I have revamped, I have learnt online strategies only to have the mysterious algorithm change overnight, I have taken classes, I have Zoom'd, I have done all the things. And like most of us I'm tired. You know what I haven't done? I haven't gone sailing. Which was one of the main reasons I began Sailorgirl Jewelry. 

My mission with Sailorgirl Jewelry is to explore and adventure. To turn my visions into wearable works of art. To bring colour and happiness to others. There hasn't been enough adventuring in the past 2 years. 

Like many others the new year brings many resolutions and much thinking. The board of directors at Sailorgirl Jewelry gave me a fantastic award and an AMAZING prize! 

And the prize is...

The CSO (Chief Sailing Officer) has decided that I need to go back to the roots of this company. I have been awarded a winter away on my sailboat, the Flying Saucer! 

It's short notice, I'm leaving at the end of next week, yikes! That gives me just one week to clean up my website, and pack up my house. 

What does this mean for the company? Fingers crossed the summer of 2022 will bring a return of craft shows in Ontario. If they happen I'll be there. In the meantime my website remains open and my lovely assistant Becky will be shipping orders for me. I will be in contact by email as it's unlikely we will leave the waters of the USA.

Take note: I will not be able to do any custom requests until I return.

Ready for a science lesson?

Ready for a science lesson?

When I posted this photo of my leftovers at the end of a torch session, many people asked, “Why not just melt those bits down?”

I don’t melt these down because this day I was using two different types of glass, Effetre and Bullseye and they have different COEs.

COE - Coefficient of Expansion. It's....

Spring! Fun with fire and making a daffodil pendant

Spring! Fun with fire and making a daffodil pendant

Every day when I wake up the sun is just a bit brighter. In the garden the shoots in the ground are just a bit higher. The buds are a bit bigger. The sky is a bit bluer. From one day to the next the changes are so small they're almost unnoticeable. Yet when I think back to a month ago, what's outside right now is a miracle.

More shells?

More shells?

“More? More shells? You’re collecting more shells? What are you going to do with those ones?”

He had a point. I had a LOT of shells. Put me anywhere near a seashore and I will bend down, rummage around and find treasure. Then I will bring my treasure home with me.

When Mother Nature decides to show you a trick

We were sailing merrily along, when out of the corner of my eye I see something. Something rather peculiar. Uh oh.
