me and martha working it
I appeared on Martha Stewart on January 19th, 2007. It was one of the best days of my life.

I applied to be on the "Teach Martha" segment of the show in November 2006. I was selling the necklaces that I created online in an online shop I created and ran, and at the Patricia Field boutique in NYC. Pat Field is the stylist from Sex and the City.

Within 2-hours of them receiving my samples & press-kit, the Martha producers asked me to send in a demonstation video. My husband filmed me making one in our living room.

My graphic-design training at HSU helped me make a great press release and they put me in the "yes" basket.  When the February 2007, InStyle magazine had a Louis Vuitton necklace just like mine that retailed for $850, (I can make these for less than $3) they called me and told me I was going to be on the show. I started preparing immediately!

Sunday the 14th of Jan. 2007, I flew to New York City, and on the morning of the 15th, it was recorded, though it did not play on national television until Friday, the 19th. Seeing myself on the Front Page of www.MarthaStewart.com was the most exciting feeling of my life.

Martha is tall and beautiful with glittering blue eyes, and it was a wonderful experience.  I am beyond thankful for the opportunity and the gift of street-cred for life. I met and fell in love with one of the producers and we have remained great friends to this day.

If you would like to watch the video, here is the link to it on Martha Stewart's website.
