Maker of the Month Glen Sironen @jewelerglen "I grew up in Western Michigan. After serving in the US Army, I accepted an invitation to move to Montreal, Canada for a short period of time. There I was introduced to the jewelry industry.
I return to Western Michigan where I had the golden opportunity to serve a European style apprenticeship for over five years under noted Latvian Master Goldsmith, Hugo V. Braslis.
My training covered many facets of the jewelry industry. I was trained in handcrafting, repair, restoration, stone setting and much, much more. I was most fascinated by and engaged in the crafting of traditional Latvian style jewelry that dates back to approximately 1000 years BC. Latvian designs are most notable for the wide range of heavy wire braiding, wire twists, and patterned engraving, along with the use of Baltic amber." #puremichigan#turquoisejewelry#studiojsd#madeinmichigan#visitgrandhaven
I’ve never been good at goodbyes. I always feared the good I’d miss by saying goodbye.
This past week I said goodbye to my home in Michigan. I packed away the last pieces of the life I once live and closed the longest chapter of my life. I didn’t feel that fear that I normally felt saying goodbye. because I know although I left I never can really leave.
There are pieces of me there forever. In the places I’ve been, in the people I loved, and in the memories that remain.
Thank you to all the people who have made the last 24 years in Michigan amazing, including the ones not pictured. I look forward to our future hellos.
Good bye may seem forever. Farewell is like the end, but in my heart is the memory and there you will always be.

My 6 mile turned into 9 this morning when I realized how nice it was outside and how great I felt. I took it easy and decided to just keep going until the path became impassible due to snow (I suppose I COULD have run on the snow, but didn’t want to!). Good to see that things are melting! #spring
I honestly forgot how fun this thing is. I'm going to have to fabricate a rear bumper and add some more scale accessories and a motor fan, but it works pretty good with the new axle. #scalenation#tinytrucks#puremichigan
Monday Pilates!! It’s crazy how much you can tone just by lifting a heel!
Do this when: - you’re waiting for the microwave to finish
- making your tea/ coffee in the morning - waiting for your clothes to be done in the washer and dryer - anytime you want to feel the burn!
12x alternating heel lifts on either side
12x double heel lift
20x double heel life pulses
Repeat for as much time it takes you to feel the burn 🔥🔥 Song 🎵: Oh devil by Electric Guest
