I am participating in Show Us Your Life with Kelly from Kelly's Korner this week.
Her theme is "show us what you make."
What I make, is enamel on copper art and jewelry. I grew up watching my mom and Margaret Ratcliff making enamel on copper decorative plates in her shop. Recently, my sis-n-law, Britni, and I began working with my mom at the shop learning the ins and outs of enameling.
This past year, we decided to apply for an "Art Incubator" program in the Village of Stone Mountain.
We made it into the program and created Sailor Studio.
We share a gallery and storefront with another local artist, Tracie Hawkins, and we have our workshop there as well.
My sis-in-law and I have been mostly working on the Sailor Studio "wearable art" line. Our goal is to make jewelry that is artistic and unique.
We want to our pieces to be conversation starters
and get you the "Wow, where did you get that?" comments :)
And we also create custom baby plates which can be matched to nursery decor. =)
We absolutely love what we do!!
We hope that it shows in our workmanship
and the way we do business. =)
If you are interested in a virtual tour of our gallery, I did my first Video Blog yesterday!
We finally uploaded a lot of pieces to our Etsy shop, so check it out and let us know what ya think =)

Starting this business with my family is a dream come true for me.
So my question this week is...
If you could do anything(career-wise) what would you do?
