I hope most of you are enjoying a pleasant holiday. I, as it happens, am
working however. I especially don't mind working on this one. It is, after
all, about celebrating the worker and working. Because I have always worked
with my hands, I have always felt a strong connection to all laborers. And I
happen to like to work, especially when I can actually sit down at my bench and
get an extended period of time actually making the jewelry. I truly enjoy my
time on the bench. Every time it provides me with a challenge (and mind numbing
boring repetitive tasks---but that allows me to think at the same time) and new
ideas. As it happens I am in working today because I am swamped at the moment
but that's okay too because it does give me an excuse to come in and get some
happy time on the bench.
Happy Labor Day everyone.
I've been making and selling jewelry for 40 years. For 20 years I was one of the partners of Spirer Somes Jewelers. In 2004 I opened my own store with my wife Kathy. I have a Graduate Gemologist degree from the Gemological Institute of America. Everything sold in my store I make myself.
