In the creating process of building my website for the online store GSG Steampunk Gems and handcrafting Steampunk jewellery, I asked my stepdaughter Sinead Blaney about her thoughts on my creations. Her opinion matters a lot to me since she is not only a smart and beautiful young woman, but she is also a professional model for MiLK Models in the UK, who has a good insight and knowledge on current day fashion and trends.
It was very nice to hear how she liked my gems when she first saw them in reality. The fact that she was willing to wear a gem, that I specially made for her birthday, to an event that is linked to her work was a big and lovely surprise. She also told me she liked to show a picture of herself wearing the GSG Steampunk Gem on her Instagram account, so all her followers could see it too. That made me very happy as well (understatement) and I feel honoured that she wanted to do that for GSG Steampunk Gems and me.
These are the pictures where Sinead shows the necklace I created for her, with Sinead’s approval for showing these on my website.
