How’s it going…? I hope everyone has had an awesome week/weekend. I haven’t written anything in a little while so I thought I would give a little update.
Handcrafts & Artwork
I’m still handcrafting my earrings and necklaces and they’ve been flying off the shelves! So, I can’t thank those who bought one enough for the support. Now, I’m trying to get inventory up for powwow time…
Though the earrings aren’t available online yet, they will be soon I hope. I’ve been looking around at different eCommerce sights, and even thinking of just selling from Facebook.
In the last few days, I’ve been finding amazing wire jewelry
through Instagram and I found myself dying to create something with wires. I
have never really tried, though it’s always been something I’ve wanted to try.
I have always seen amazing wire jewelry at powwows growing
up and even watched one artist create a beautiful earring using only wires.
That was my first experience with wire jewelry.
In recent months I’ve contemplated starting a vlog, or video
blog, on YouTube. It’s something I’ve been interested in doing for a while, but
my anxiety seems to always get the best of me. I can come up with a million ways
why I shouldn’t do it or why it wouldn’t be beneficial to anyone, but I’ve made
a promise to myself to face my fears and to do the things that I’ve been too afraid
to do, and if I’m being honest, it scares the hell out of me.
I am a father, a husband, and an aspiring Shawnee artist. I want to be the best father I can be for my son, the best husband I can be for my wife, and the best Shawnee I can be for my people.
Neyiwa! Thank You!
