A Clip From WBRE's Morning Show

In case you missed WBRE's Morning Show yesterday, click here to see the second segment of my jewelry-making feature with Kristi Capel. Once you're on the page, look for the jewelry-making clip. I'm thrilled that I was able to show Kristi a basic jewelry-making technique in this short segment. I have to admit I was wondering how much I could really show the viewers in two minutes, but it worked out great.

My First TV Appearance

I'm pleased to say that my first television appearance went well. The folks on WBRE's Morning Show were wonderful. They made me feel right at home, and I really enjoyed the experience.

Yesterday when I spoke to Ben, the producer for the show, he briefed me on what I needed to do. Not knowing exactly what to expect, I made sure that I packed a lot of jewelry supplies, tools, and samples. We were taping live, so it's best to have more items on hand than not enough.

I arrived at the televsion station at 5:45 a.m., and Ben escorted me to the studio. It was fun to watch Kristi, Eva, and Doug interact with one another both on air and off. They all have such great chemistry.

Kristi Capel and I talked about jewelry making for the first two-minute segment, and I showed her some jewelry samples. As I was getting comfortable, it was time for a commercial break. My second segment didn't start until approximately 6:40 a.m. In the meantime, I enjoyed watching what went on behind the scenes. There was a lot of energy in the room.

If you're looking for a good morning show, be sure to check out WBRE's Kristi Capel, Eva Mastromatteo, and Doug Currin. You won't be disappointed. Also, if you're on Facebook, be sure to become a WBRE Morning Show fan. Just click here to learn more.

TV Debut

Be sure to check out WBRE's morning show tomorrow beginning at 6 a.m. I'll be demonstrating some quick and easy jewelry projects anywhere between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. I'll have 2 two-minute segments to accomplish this task, so I designed some projects that would work well in this time period. The picture above shows a few projects I put together for the presentation. See you soon!
