I was interviewed a few weeks ago about my rosary business and the article came out on Sunday. I was very happy to have been approached but nervous at the aspect of talking with someone about my work and having a photographer in my home, but it was pretty laid back.
The article turned out okay...the writer really didn't know anything about jewelry-making or rosaries and I didn't get a chance to proof or confirm facts. I do actually realize my rosary pliers are round-nose pliers, not needle nose ones :) Other misconceptions/errors...I am actually the youngest of 5 (I have 3 sisters and 1 brother); my rosary business on etsy is melismaticrosaries.etsy.com (my jewelry site was listed in error); and while I am not a full-time professional musician, the statement about "having no future in music" was a bit dissapointing. I have sung with the Washington Opera (now National Opera), Wolf Trap Opera, Washington Concert Opera, and my gigs at St. John the Beloved and St. Catherine of Siena are/were paid jobs - I just meant I realized I didn't have what it takes to be a full time opera singer!
I have gotten a few inquiries from it already, so I am hopeful it will bring some new customers.

I couldn't get the photos to show up in the online article, so have scanned a few from the newspaper to include...quality is not the greatest.
