I got engaged this past October, and just one week later my fiance Brad moved to Detroit to follow his career. I've postponed the move as long as I can, but now it's time to take the plunge and join him there. Leaving Central Virginia is bittersweet, but I am excited for a new adventure! The universe has already told me that everything is going to be okay. Through some shameless email networking I've already found the studio of my dreams. It's a magical warehouse space in downtown Detroit that I'll be sharing with a woodworker, Kyle and a metal sculptor, Scott. Come for a for a visit! I'll tell you, Detroit is bursting with energy, local pride and cheap real estate.
I have been so lucky to work with some of the most talented and fearless people over the past few years. To all of you who have been a part of this great idea that has become Elaine B Jewelry: Thank you. Special shout outs to Lauren, Matt, Caitlyn and Nikita. You guys have really helped me build something we can all be proud of.
For the next few weeks things might be a little slower than usual while I settle into my new space. In the meantime, please respond to this email and say hi, I would love to hear from you! You can also come visit me at ACC Baltimore in the end of February.
I'll post lots of pics when everything is up and running!
