I have a whole new family and they are from Texas! I can’t describe the love I was given when I went to San Antonio to do a Trunk Show last month. It all happened when a client called me and asked me to come out so her friends could see my jewelry line and shop. The next thing you know, the event got bigger and bigger. I had decided that if I were to come out, how could I not only show my jewelry, but how could I give back to San Antonio? That question was answered when one of the hosts asked if I could give back to the Autism Network of San Antonio. Her child is autistic and it would mean a lot to her if I would do that. The answer was, “Yes!”
When I arrived to San Antonio, I really got the full version of Texas style. Everyone that I met along the way could not have been sweeter and kinder to me. I fell in love with Texas immediately.
My first day in San Antonio started off by being on the local morning talk show, “Great Day SA.” I had so much fun with everyone there! We really enjoyed ourselves that morning. We did a giveaway of a special designed piece made from sterling silver and black diamonds in honor of the San Antonio Spurs.
