I’ve Been Discovered… Now I’m a Little Worker Bee

17 Jul

While I was in Florence with my Italian family, we took a night stroll through the town. When we passed a shop, Lucia pointed to a necklace and asked me if I thought I could make it. After looking at it for a moment, I figured out how I would be able to make it, and I took a picture to remember it by.

When we got back to Siena, Lucia bought me the supplies to make the necklace. I managed to replicate it necklace pretty well, and I could see the excitement in her eyes that she now has a jewelry maker living in her house. This is perfectly fine with me because I like having hobbies and being praised.

I didn’t manage to get a photo of the first necklace that I made because Lucia had me make it for a friend of hers.

The family got me more beads so that I could continue creating more work. I think some time this week we are going to go to a market to get even nicer materials.

Here are a few of the pieces I’ve created.

    That’s incredible…. My daughter the Asian-American-Italian jewelry designer. What do you know… maybe we will get to travel around the world to promote your jewelries one day soon. Maybe you can make it big in QVC…. Don’t forget that you have parents that can help with the marketing and social media designs…. lol! I don’t mind being your sidekick if that means that I get to travel with you… 🙂

    I am so proud of you. Love to meet your host parents one day if we can get on skype together. Take care sweetie. Love you, dad
