It’s been almost two and a half years since I first laid my hands on a file. Or a saw. Or a hammer. I thought back then this is a hobby I should give a try, but I was genuinely afraid that it will last as little as my other endeavors (card making, crochet, print screening).
Today I received my first gem tray for all of the gemstones and rough stones I have been collecting over time. I felt a bit proud and much more inspired to see them all lined up like this.
Does this mean that I am jeweler? A small one, admittedly, but a jeweler still.
