A Labor of Love!
As a child growing up in Southeast Alaska, I spent many rainy days indoors engrossed in my favorite book. While my seven siblings were reading Tom Sawyer or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I was curled up with our family’s tattered JC Penney mail order catalogue.
My home-town was a small community where the only access, in or out, was by plane or boat. Department stores were few and far between. Mail-order catalogues, like my favorite from JC Penney, were the portal to all consumable goods. I spent hours looking through the glossy pages, reading the descriptions, imagining the possibilities.
As I grew older this catalogue played a key role in analyzing my options for the coming school year. You can imagine my excitement on the first day of second grade as I carefully laid out my outfit, just as I had seen it in the catalogue. I walked into the classroom, so very proud of myself, only to see two other children with the exact same clothes. In fact, if asked, I could have recited the description for every outfit in that room, including the teacher. I thought I had created something special, but how could it be special if everyone else has the exact same things. My mother tried her best to console me, “You will fit in and be like the other kids,” but I was crushed. My love for catalogues died that day, but this experience eventually helped form the core beliefs of Nunn Design, a company that allows each person’s creations to be unique and one-of-a-kind.
This year’s catalogue is truly a labor of love. It is my hope that it will become a treasured catalogue for you. With each technique pictured in the following pages, you will find all of the supplies, tutorials, and videos needed to explore the endless possibilities for unique jewelry to create that is true to your brand.
