Hi all! Well, so much for posting new jewelry once a week, eh? I have been completely in a non-creative mode for the last few weeks...lots of personal turmoil about my path forward!
One of the decisions I have made is to somehow try to separate my jewelry-making/designing from my rosary business. While I will continue to design and make rosaries, I am experimenting with a new shop on Etsy that is solely for them...Melismatic Rosaries. You singers/musicians out there probably know that a melisma is a florid grouping of notes that are sung on 1 syllable of text - think Gregorian chant or Mozart aria (not the silly hip-hop or R&B mess that every pop singer out there tries to do:) ). It is also a play on words with Melissa...in fact, a couple of choir directors in the past have jokingly called me "Melisma Meman" :).
For now, my website will still include rosaries, but I will be implementing their new name! I haven't really decided about ArtFire and 1000 Markets...am thinking that both those venues will just be specific types of jewelry, but am still working that out in my head!new EtsyNameSpace.Mini(6849471, 'shop','thumbnail',3,4).renderIframe();
