In the last months before my new website launch I have been doing what I have been jokingly calling my Richard Newcombe Jewelry Promotional Tour. The first part was driving from Las Vegas to Florida to my mother’s because she had fallen and fractured her pelvis and needed assistance. It was too much for my sister to handle alone. After my mother had recuperated I have traveled to visit family and friends in New York and New Jersey. I grew up in New Jersey and went to Rutgers University. I also met one of my oldest friends whose husband is in the Foreign Service and she was in from China. We went to her sister’s house in Long Island and to her house in Maine. I stayed with my friend in New York City. I spent the 4th of July at my friend’s house down the Jersey Shore in Asbury Park and then again in NYC. I have been seeing family members in the area and spending time with one of my old friends and seeing friends in the area here. How wonderful it has all been. One of the big things on this trip will be a high School Reunion. I will spend a few days in the town and area I grew up in, Sparta NJ.
In all this time I have been getting ready for the website launch by uploading and photographing pieces I have made. I have also been making new pieces as well because that is what I love the most.
