The most interesting thing about me is, I am a martial artist and a jeweler. A weird combination but it does have its advantages! I practice Northern Shoulin and Chinese Military martial arts, which strengthen the mind and body. This is essential for me as a jeweler because of the hard work I have to do at my job. Everyday I have to use my body strength to saw, stretch, bend, and mold rings. Then I have to polish all the rings I had accumulated, which is about 45 rings a day. I also have to use my brain by calculating the size of a diamond and how many carats it is under a time limit! I also have to calculate pricing of gold, and keep track of all the inventory for the shop. With out my martial arts training, I think my life would be quite difficult and stressful.
