Reflecting on 10 years, 2009 VS 2019

Posted by Jay Cuneo on

I’ve debated whether or not I wanted to post this, but here it goes. (*Trigger Warning* if you aren't comfortable with mental health topics this isn't a post to read).
This is me, 10 years ago at age 16. My 16th year happens to be the one and only year where there is more than one picture of me, because it was the year I fell in love with photography. I have more pictures of myself in this year alone than I do the next 9 years combined. They are mostly partial lit, have half my face or maybe nothing of my physical body at all and instead a picture of something I deeply loved. But they all were photos that I took. Photos that represent who I was at that time, how I saw things and what I felt comfortable with showing. No more, no less.

Like most opals, Ethiopian Opals are one of the more delicate stones that are used in jewelry. Ethiopian opals are unique, however, and I'd like to tell you a bit more about them (and also have a dedicated page as a resource if you happen to own an Ethiopian Opal piece from me).

I Wear This Necklace Everyday

Posted by Jay Cuneo on

I recently visited a store in Connecticut to meet with the lovely woman that curates the jewelry section of the store (among the rest of the floor!) and in doing so, I was super picky about choosing what necklaces I wore to this meeting. 
I realized that there's one necklace I've pretty much worn every day since I first made myself one! I wear it because it's quite possibly the epitome of what I could ever want in a necklace for myself.
