MARION'S EARLIER YEARS IN COMMUNICATIONS - AN ACCOMPLISHED MEDICAL EDITOR, WRITER, JOURNALIST & PUBLISHING CONSULTANT
~ Marion's not-so-secret alter ego "Miriam Bat-Rachel," Gemstone Jewelry Designer ~
Words and Gemstones? Do they have anything in common?
Many people are surprised when the marketing consultant and writer they work with – or "Book Author" they meet—also designs jewelry! Actually, there is a great similarity between creating a press release, ghostwriting an article or editorial, or crafting a tactical marketing plan—and designing a piece of jewelry. Words or gemstones. Both need to be carefully considered in order to meet the needs of the client and the target audience. As my jewelry-designing persona, “Miriam Bat-Rachel,” I design each item of jewelry around the shapes and colors of the natural stones—choosing and then arranging the stones and sterling silver beads on my worktable, moving them around until I like the way they look. When designing the silver or bronze wire accents, I bend and twist the wire, so it looks natural on the focal stone—literally as if it were part of the natural texture of the stone. Words and gemstones. Working with either takes great precision.
They both light up my creative spirit!
