My name is Richard and I’d like to thank you for checking out my blog. I hope you visit my online shop as well www.mypinkplanet.etsy.com , that is if you haven’t already.
I’ve always had a fascination, as far back as I remember, with jewelry and all things sparkly. In my teenage years I started collecting vintage costume jewelry and my natural inclination was to explore how and where such beautiful objects were made. From working in design houses that opened in the 1930’s and 40’s I learned many of the old and lost techniques from some of the industries “old timers”. Today I’m a 10+ year veteran jewelry designer who enjoys inspiring others as well as exploring my own creative venues.
