Today I’m taking a little break from sharing about my custom jewelry and bridal accessories to share a bit about my life off the jeweler’s bench as a creative entrepreneur.

When I’m not behind my jeweler’s bench creating crystal hair vines and modern jewelry, I am an active member of the creative entrepreneurs’ community in my home city. The hub of this part of my life is The Rising Tide Society, a worldwide movement working to empower and educate creatives in the spirit of “community over competition.”
The Rising Tide Society recently hosted its annual online conference, The Rise Summit, with a live webcast from its main offices in San Francisco. In between live sessions, the Summit aired a collection of pre-recorded short videos from community leaders. I was honored to have been selected as a featured speaker among the other powerhouse leaders who contributed.
In my video, I shared three practical tips for practicing mental health and self care as a creative entrepreneur.
I’m well versed in the importance of self care as a creative entrepreneur from personal experience. In the future, I hope to share more about my own journey toward mental health here on the blog. For now, here is a look at the video I recorded as it aired on the live webcast during The Rise Summit!
