It's so cliche, but so true - each New Year brings with it the potential for great things. It's a time for new beginnings and for starting over. It's a beautiful blank page that you can fill with the desires of your heart. For me, the year 2012 brings with it a big milestone - my 50th birthday. That's not until December, but it gives me some pegs on which to hang my thoughts and focus my activities. There are some things I'd like to accomplish before the big 5-0 hits a little under a year from now.

One of those things is to continue to bring you the very best my heart has to offer in terms of what I call functional art - sterling silver and solid gold rings that are custom made for you by my hands. Moving my base of operations to this independent site is a very important part of that accomplishment.

I'm looking forward to all that 2012 has in store for us, and I hope you are too. What are you hoping to accomplish in this New Year?
