yet, Growth is OPTIONAL.

The Past is unchangeable,
The Future is unknowable,
Peace is found in the NOW.

You cant Stop the WAVES
but, you can Learn to SURF.

Yep, that's me with a monkey on my head in the rainforests of Bolivia.

I am currently loving life in Bangkok, Thailand where I am teaching English and working on a series of Travel eBooks that will (hopefully) lead to the publishing of a travel novel that I have been rewriting.

I do not have a jewelry studio at the moment so I cannot accept any commissions, however, I have premade several designs for sale on my Etsy store, and also have 67 DIY jewelry project PDF tutorials for you to download and make a home.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me an email below.

Many thanks, Scott David Plumlee.
