A beginning ...

Hi ... I'm Bob Edwards, the guy behind www.jewelry24seven.com - and I'm looking forward to having a bit more freedom to write what I want to here ... it seems all I write on the site is product descriptions etc ... Here, I'll be getting into lots of stuff related to silver jewelry, ranging from making it to selling it on the web and at street fairs here in New York City.

The site has been online for about six years now. It is growing - in size and popularity - at a steady pace. Our silver chains by the inch have been shipped to every state from Maine to Hawaii. Our Balinese sources supply us with beautiful earrings, bracelets and barrettes. And our hand crafted silver jewelry has gotten better and better ... its hard for me to believe, but my partner Terry and I have been making silver jewelry for over 30 years now ...

Terry likes working with chain, wire and beads. She makes some really wild and cool stuff.

I am more of a metal worker. I make rings, bracelets, earrings ... and lots more. I also cut and polish cabochons to set in my jewelry ... like opal, turquoise, chrysoprase and petrified wood.

This year, we're booked into 29 Manhattan street fairs. I will be working the fairs with my partner in life and business, Terry ... and my niece Melissa. I will post a schedule soon ... the first one is on April 22, and they run through November - one each weekend. Should be fun!
