Got Towing and Found a New Beauty Salon

24hour towing

Finding out new passion of mine is always a great thing as a jeweler.

So after doing tons of research and weighting my options and the pros and cons, I decided to try to get lash extensions about a month ago. I still have mixed feelings about them.

They make me look great, I have that flawless feeling that Beyoncé sings about when I wake up and have on no makeup and I look great enough to run out to the grocery store or gas station without scaring away all the little kids and some adults for that matter.

The only thing is that they are kind of high maintenance. You have to keep a little mascara wand with you to brush them every now and then because they can get tangled. It’s almost like you have to constantly check to make sure your lashes look ok or risk looking like a cave woman with fuzzy caterpillars on your eyes and I assume it might be pretty painful if you just let them stay tangled. I tend to toss and turn when I sleep and sometimes I would put a little crease on the side of my lashes, so that looked weird. But the worst part is when they start to grow out and shed with your natural lashes, you look really weird.

You have these long, fluttery beautiful lashes that a huge gap where 5 or so have fallen out. I would definitely get them again because they make me feel so glamourous and effortlessly beautiful but they are an expensive habit to keep up. I had to pay $200 for my initial set and I was quoted $80 for the fill in where the lashes started falling out. It’s almost as much as I had to pay for tree services one time. Anyways most women get both top and bottom lashes then get fills every six weeks.

So you end up paying a pretty penny to look pretty and that’s not something I’m willing to do while I have my other bills, it’s not a priority for me like eating or having my lights on. They are addictive, you get addicted to the look and feel of them but I’ll stick to my $5 strip lashes from the beauty supply store until I can afford to look like the celebrities that frequently wear the lash extensions. They’re something good for a special event but not for everyday use for me. There a few cons that I took the risk with as well. I heard of people doing lashes without any formal training, just learning from YouTube or a friend and then buying supplies.

The lash extension business is not something that is regulated by beauty laws yet, but it should be. Most people that apply lash extensions rent out their own studio and either only do lashes or supplement with makeup and waxing eyebrows. People are getting eye infections and losing their own lashes permanently because of lack of proper training. However, if you can find a good lash stylist, as they call themselves, definitely go for it. It’s a great experience and make for a great selfie booster without a filter!

The best beauty place I found when I had to get my car towed to a tire shop when I got a flat tire the other week and while I was waiting for the car to get fixed, I walked over to a beauty salon next door and I found the best prices in Michigan. Anyway I really liked this towing company so I’m going to give them a shout out.

Bracelets & Diamond Rings Are FOR ever

We all know one of the most powerful ways to build your business in any market is to have superior product because having a great product will get you word of mouth referrals, and there is nothing more powerful than that. Case in point, recently I did a beautiful Diamond bracelet for a client in Ann Arbor. The limo company that I coordinated the event with was so impressed by the fine craftsmanship of the bracelet that he referred me to his other office in West Bloomfield and told me that’s where I ought to be finding clients because that’s where the money is at.

And he is right. He told me his limousine office in Bloomfield Hills books about 1.5 times more in wedding bookings because its just different demographics there. And I have drove past Bloomfield Hills and I must say there are some big houses of there.


He does a lot of bookings so he talked about a referral program where if I pay him a certain commission amount he will refer me wedding clients, which I’m totally cool with, yes I am totally down for more business. Especially in the personal jeweler business, sometimes the clients are hard to come by and the ticket item is big where there is enough margins to spare him his commission. Also I could use more work and wedding clients are great. They are a pleasure to work with and I love being part of special memories, this goes with Anniversaries, birthday gifts, mothers day to fathers day. A jewelry present will signify much on any occasion.

When you order through a customer jeweler and I load up your jewelry with many diamonds you will impress anybody you gift it to and it will create a special memory that day that I can almost guarantee you.

See not too many things in life express value in physical reality as concrete as diamonds, they are the icons of success and wealth, at the end of the day it is just a  really shiny rock, but because there is so much cultural anchor attached to it, it becomes something much much more than just solidified carbon rock. It becomes an emotional anchor that moves people… emotionally.


It is a communication tool as much as a shiny rock that costs a lot of money. You will be able to communicate to your significant other just how much you love and care for them, and this is the emotional anchor that brings tears to the iris.

Through my ears of creating beautiful diamond jewelries I have seen many tears in the clients eyes, which also almost brings me to tears. There is something powerful about a diamond that is encased in black velvet, when it shines it is like the light of hope and love emanating back at you. You are seeing one of nature’s most beautiful creations gifted by a friend or lover that cares very much about you. In that instant, you feel your self worth, value, love and connection all at the same time.

Strangers can become lovers, and lovers can ascend in that moment into union.

This great company has horse carriages available for you:

They say diamonds are forever, well I would like to add on that its the memory that becomes embedded into our subconscious that becomes forever. It’s the strong emotions you feel around this stone that’s priceless and eternity. It is the momentary connection you feel with your significant other that gives you glimpse into eternity.

That love you can access anytime but it is difficult with all of the bombardment of distractions you feel in this world. I am passionate about true love and love is what I am here for. And love is where I will be returning. And this is why I chose this profession to become a Jeweler. Not to become one of those hip-hop jewelers that use this stone to signify power and status, which is great to. But my work is about symbolizing true love in this stone and capturing those timeless moments.

& If I can bridge that precious love from one person to another in that instant when they gift my custom made Diamond jewelery, I have done my job.

This is why I would like to get more wedding clients and referrals for anniversary or valentines. My diamonds and craftsmanship is world class, you will definitely not regret choosing me as your custom jeweler in Michigan.

Fine art of jewelry making, what does it become to get yourself known


Did you know there’s over 35 processes involved in making a diamond bracelet? With steps that makes you work in the fraction of a mm? Yes jewelry making is a fine art with fine details not most of us are involved in. To make a good, distinctive diamond bracelet you have to work at levels even smaller than that, it is no doubt a tedious times many times that involved some pretty complicated tasks that would make you want to go a bit insane.

When you work at these small things everyday its easy to lose focus of the bigger picture and which is as an independent jeweler you are running a business and running a business depends on being able to market effectively.

I believe too many jewelers out there simply focus on fine art of jewelry making and not enough emphasis on marketing. In my humble opinion the art of jewelry making once you master the art, should consist of 20% of your time. The rest of the time you should be building your brand and image and making that as big as you possibly can. Because no one is going to make it for you.

Everyday you should be focused on how can I get more people to recognize me. To many people are quivaleing over the small stuff and never actually going out there in the market place and letting yourself known which takes guts and preserverance.

It is the gut, grit & hustle we need. It is about always feeling you don’t have enough, never completely satisfied with where your at in life, and keep preservering until you see everything to completion.

In this market place I want to cover up and dominate. I want to take name and take charge. I want to control my own destiny, write my own checks, have a team of outstanding hard workers that also have a vision. I’m not about relaxing on a Friday and taking it easy. Until I become a millionaire I commit to a life of persistant, grit, hustle, hard work & more hard work.

I make sure I am being social and human along the way, but its all game time from here on out. I am competing with other Jker’s and even the coaches. I am persistently reaching places where other’s neglect.

It’s time for me to break out and take massive action. Massively brand myself and go towards big goals & vision in life. I am an entrepreneur and I don’t stop until I see success. There is a bright future ahead of me and I take massive action until I make it happen. I build my business when others are sleeping I take massive sick levels of action to improve my skills on the phone with sales and persuasion. I embody the teachings of Grand Cardone and Jordan Belfort.

I am unstoppable, I am reaching my prime.

How to become a successful jeweler


Many people don’t realize what it takes to become a successful jeweler they think its all in the skills of creating jewelry people love and of course that’s part of it but to become truly successful at the highest level is to become a successful marketer. You have to know how to market and brand yourself.

The key to any entrepeneur business such as a jeweler is to know how to go out there and get attention. Getting attention is the key to success and anybody knows the best way to get attention is to create massive action.

Start writing blog posts, start posting youtube videos, start doing whatever you can to brand and market yourself so that you become a force to be reckon with on the internet.

You have to create that buzz that excitement around you everywhere you go because people will defintely gravite towards that.

For example when I did a jewerly for one of my client in Bloomfield Hills the other day, again I partnered with a Bloomfield Hills Limo party their website is

We didn’t just create a limo plus jewelry package, we created a social media buzz around it. Remember every job you do is an opportunity to market your products further into the market place.

So get out there and create buzz, you can never create too much buzz out there in the world. Everything can be utilized to your benefit, its all about getting creative and making things happen. What I would like to see is every day post in your Facebook post about different projects your involved in and the types of jewelry your making because that creates sort of sensation around you where people will begin sharing your post and it will begin reaching larger groups of people.

Then you will begin to set yourself apart where you will have clients coming to you for your services. That’s the kind of place you want to get to begin create massive amounts of social proof and attention.

In todays world there is so much noise out there that its whoever can cut through the noise and get people’s attention is the one that will begin to win the day. There’s many individuals out there that want to see the results without putting in enough effort. As entrepreneur no one is going to make it happen besides yourself.

We are all born with massive amounts of talent but the question is are we using it to our fullest capacity or are we sedating ourselves daily with things that doesn’t progress us forwards in life.

I am going to show you what it takes to become successful in life in general. It takes consistent daily habits to make you successful. Daily habits that drive the top 1% into reaching their full potential. It’s not who you know or where you started from, its about your commitment, drive, and never settle for anything less mentality that will push you into a realm of unstoppable power and determination.


Great Ann Arbor Wedding and found some cool restaurants too


The classy all white wedding in Ann Arbor, MI was a success. I made the fanciest jewelery to date, with all 15 K white Diamonds that is of one of the highest grade, this thing shimmered from miles away. The total job took me 1 week of nonstop designing and crafting but it was totally worth it to see the big smile on Tom’s face (the husband), I have been a jeweler for nearly 15 years and I must say there is nothing more rewarding then see the amazed look on clients faces especially if this was for a very special event like a wedding.

In a way I have always been about romance, I loved romantic movies ever since I was little, I loved romantic movies and would fantasize about the a romantic scene with imaginary girl friend.

One of my role model is James Franco well because when I was younger I really liked James Dean, and James Franco looks like him. I would like to model my life the way he lives, just very carefree and not conforming to social norms.

Anyway as a jeweler I want to provide the best for my clients, especially when it comes to my wedding clients because they have big budgets and at the wedding my work will be introduced to others so it is a huge marketing opportunity.

Anyway the wedding from what I heard was fantastic and the new couple called me to tell me how much the bracelet fit their vision and was very close to what their mother used to wear.

I was in Ann Arbor to present the final bracelet and talk to the business owner by properly setting it inside the limo so that the couple will find it as surprise after the vow is made and on their way back to the new home. Me and limo owner worked out the perfect spot to place the shimmering Diamond bracelet so it catches the eye of couple perfectly.

That whole process was very fun to do, and I got a sneak peak at the wedding limousine as well. A very nice vehicle and I will definitely be calling them up whenever I need limo service in Ann Arbor.

Anyway before I drove home back east, I stopped by a Korea BBQ restaurant in Ann Arbor called Seoul Garden. I’ve been to several Korean restaurant in Michigan but this place was absolutely fantastic:

3125 Boardwalk Dr, Ann Arbor, MI 48108
(734) 997-2120

I give them two thumbs up big time. If you would like more pictures of the custom jewelery I made for the couple and is interested in diamond bracelets, contact me at:

Great Wedding in Ann Arbor Michigan, Custom Bracelet Requested


As a custom Jeweler, I get called all the time to make special jewelery for weddings and anniversaries. Recently I was called in by a newly wed that will be getting married next month in Ann Arbor, MI and they asked me to design for them the Tiara and memorable Diamond Bracelets.

Well I service all of Michigan so this was not a problem for me, I asked for the spec required and I went to work. I also like to ask for the reason for the Jewelry that I make because it affects how I design them.

After all the Bride already had a nice diamond ring on her hands, so I needed to really get clear on the purpose behind the bracelets. Well you can never know the reason behind these things until you ask.

Apparently the Bride’s mother past away not too long ago, and this diamond bracelet was what the mother always fashioned for special occasions going back all the way to childhood. The one she wore went down with her in the coffin and they wanted something to remember her by. A story the way she explained it with a smile that tried to hide her sadness almost brought tears to my eyes. There is a whole different mindset now involved with making this bracelet and I am honored to be chosen as Michigan’s top jeweler to take on such a work.

Their plan was to have the bracelet installed into the Limousine after the bow and on the ride home back. Because I have lived in Ann Arbor for several years and I do a lot of weddings, they asked me for recommendation for limo service in Ann Arbor as well and although I’ve tried Select Limos in the past, these days I found a new company whom I always refer my clients to they have the most premiere line up of limos and party bus I have seen in Michigan and I can refer my clients to them with full confidence.

So going back to the Bracelet Project, here is some sample pictures I’ve referenced so far. Very similar to what I have made in the past, but from the sounds of it they have pretty big budget, so these will be loaded with quality Diamonds.

Example #1


Example #2


Example #3



Because they did not have pictures of the mom’s bracelet, I had to bring up several pictures till we found the perfect one that most resembled her bracelet.

As Michigan’s most trusted Jeweler my standards are high. I will begin my creations exactly how my client wants it and then I will out perform the examples and make them something better than what they expected.

So the bracelet I will be making will be better than Example #2 and it will surely blow the couples away. I have already spoken to the Ann Arbor Limo Services owner and decided the perfect place to put the bracelet as a nice surprise when they are running high on positive emotions of just getting married and seeing this shimmering bracelet after they enter the limo will surely create a memory worth a lifetime.
