Sweet Sincerity -
Bethany Scheidt Coulombe

The path to jewelry design

My name is Bethany Coulombe, I'm currently somewhere in my 20's (a lady never tells exactly where), and I live in Bangor, Maine. By some miracle, I find myself married to a sweet, funny, little french carpenter, Matthew, who is not only a wonderful human being, but also looks amazing in a suit.

Ever since I was a child, I ALWAYS knew I wanted to be an artist. I loved drawing, painting, sculpting, and the prospect of having a job where I thought I had to wear a little french beret. Of course, I did think about going down a few other career paths as I grew up (eg. a ballerina, Stone Philips' co-anchor on the Nightly News, an architect, an art teacher, a construction worker, a medical receptionist, and a foreign language translator) before I decided on being a Jewelry Designer.

When all was said and done, my inherited artistic abilities (thanks dad!), and my general, overwhelming joie de vivre and love of sparkly things (thanks mom!) led me to comfortably settle into jewelry making. I'm not going to lie, I still secretly want to be a ballerina, but the thought of being the only student over 3 feet tall in an introductory ballet class makes me realize that the ship of opportunity has REALLY already sailed on that career path.  

In terms of accolades from accredited institutions, I am a 2004 graduate of John Bapst Memorial High School, I graduated summa cum laude with Honors in 2007 with a Bachelors degree in Romance Languages (concentration in French and Spanish) from University of Maine Orono, and I am currently enrolled as life-long student in the School of Hard Knocks, where the tuition is high but the lessons are priceless.

I also love to blog (www.sweetsincerityjewelry.blogpost.com), to participate in community volunteer work, and shop-while attempting to control my seemingly insatiable love of pretty shoes and overpriced handbags.
