"My career is my passion." Both John and I can truly say this. Or, "I work an 80 hour week so I don't have to have a 40 hour a week job!" Why? Because that is what I'm happiest doing. From the thrill of carving the original wax, to watching the customers face light up when they see their piece for the first time, to uploading our own line onto our selling sites, its what I do. Its what John does.
It appears that everything I have done in life culminated into this career. My childhood love of rocks and gems to the drawing classes to my other passion: horses. The old cliche' : if you love what you do, you won't work a day in your life, is on the nosey! So off I go, to do some life size drawings, or go on a run or putter in the garden, just to keep perspective.
John? I can bet that he's home right now, trying out new techniques for the awesome pictures he takes of our jewelry. Or carving a knife handle for his old Boy Scout knife...
Just to keep perspective.
Eli, John's son? A little pool, some organized sports.
