I’M A BLOGGER?
It took two years. I’d thought about it, been asked about it, and been told to do it. Still, since July 2013, when Keith and I first opened the doors to Cavalier, I resisted. Now, with some much needed time to reflect, and like a newly minted vegetarian window shopping at Meat and Bread, I caved.
I’m starting a blog. There, I said it.
My motivation is twofold. First, because we get so many questions about the process and steps involved in completing a custom piece of jewellery, this will provide a glimpse into what we do in-house leading up to your finished product.
Next, I will also demonstrate – despite countless allegations and claims from friends and family– that yes, I actually do work (most of the time) on my business trips. Essentially, I want to provide an inside look at the jewellery business by taking you on the road to the negotiating tables, mining facilities, gem markets, and cutting houses. If that sounds interesting, perfect. If it doesn’t, I promise it’s a lot more interesting than it sounds.
