OUTSIDE THE SHOP is a monthly recap of everything fun and exciting happening outside of that small and cozy space where I spend the majority of my time (my shop). This is a place to make connections, discuss passions, and reap the rewards of monthly jewelry giveaways.
Welcome to OUTSIDE THE SHOP!
When you are self-employed, the lines where “work” begins and ends are oftentimes very hazy. As a result your family becomes very involved in business life…everything from going on supply runs, to being there when you answer phone calls and emails. Even at this very moment my son Rain is sitting on my lap and trying to reach the keyboard as I type. please stop. 🙂
Truth be told, my family is just as much a part of Modern Goldsmith as I am.
As such, I will probably be referring to them a lot in this monthly series. This first post will mostly be spent with introductions and of course, giving away jewelry!
GETTING TO KNOW US
Hi! I’m Jordan, the founder of Modern Goldsmith. I’ve had many nicknames throughout the years: Jordo, Jard, Jordaniel, but none of them are quite as good as my very first nickname, the one my father gave me as a child: “JB” (short for “Jordan Bud”)
That’s right, I AM a bud! Can we be buds?
I’m like one of those colleges with a 100% acceptance rate…the college of buds. All you have to do is apply…
