Welcome to episode 1100, in which host Polly Hammond interviews Nicole Rolet, this week on Uncorked. This week, we are joined by the lovely and talented Nicole Rolet, CEO and driving force behind Chene Bleu. We forego wine-talk and instead jump directly into the blood, sweat, and tears of building a modern luxury brand. From solving spreadsheets and finding the right partners, to acting strategically and overcoming fear of rejection, we're talking about the non-obvious demands (and rewards!) of our industry. Let's get into it. More about today's guest: Nicole Rolet Nicole left her career in International finance and David Rockefeller's geopolitical think tanks, to join her husband Xavier and his family in the Rhone to restore a historical vineyard, derelict but magnificently wild, and its abandoned Medieval prior – a hidden gem in the heart of a UNESCO biosphere. Increasingly convinced of the site's exciting potential to produce Grand Cru-quality wine, she studied at WSET then UC Davis, and called upon her inner entrepreneur to transform this medieval Sleeping Beauty into a cutting-edge wine estate. Chêne Bleu wines were launched in 2010 to critical acclaim. She remains deeply committed to reconciling business success, social responsibility, ethical and sustainable practices, pushing the boundaries of sustainability. Knighted as Chevalier de Tastevin in Burgundy and the Echansonnerie in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, she co-founded the International Grenache Symposium and Association in 2010, then a wine school, and founded FM4FW in 2017.

She splits her time between Barcelona, Auckland, and Napa, consulting, writing, and speaking about the trends that impact today's wine businesses. She's an advisor to New Zealand Trade & Enterprise, host of Uncorked with the Italian Wine Podcast, cohost of the Real Business of Wine with Robert Joseph, and, occasionally, a knitter. Polly is a graduate of the University of Southern California, where she earned degrees in International Relations and French. Those studies led to a deep and abiding love affair with behavioral Economics, and her wine work is based on insights into all the crazy and irrational reasons consumers engage with brands. With over 20 years' experience in growing successful companies, Polly knows first-hand the challenges faced by independent businesses. She approaches each client experience with empathy and understanding for what it takes to adapt and thrive in the real world.

Career Q&A with Kristin Chenoweth. Moderated by Richard Ridge, Broadway World. Emmy and Tony Award winning actress and singer, Kristin Chenoweth, takes the lead in a career that spans film, television, voiceover and stage, effortlessly. She received an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on the ABC series Pushing Daisies (Pushing Daisies was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award and Emmy Award for “Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.”) More recently, Chenoweth lit up the stage of McKinley High as a former student who returned to town with more than the baggage from her flight, on Fox's hit comedy, Glee. Though Kristin has often come into our livingrooms on hit shows such as The West Wing (where she starred as Annabeth Schott) and as a guest judge on both American Idol and Project Runway, she may be most remembered by Broadway lovers everywhere for her origination of the role of Glinda the Good Witch in Wicked, which earned her a Tony Award Nomination, and her Tony-winning performance in You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown, for which she stole the show and many hearts in the process. Chenoweth will next be seen on-screen in the Universal film The Boy Next Door, alongside Jennifer Lopez, and in the animated Lucas film fairy tale musical Strange Magic, both set to be released on January 23. She will also be seen in the film A Bet's A Bet (International title: The Opposite Sex), releasing in January. She's completed production on the indie teen drama entitled Hard Sell and the Disney Channel's live-action original movie Descendants, in which she will play the classic Sleeping Beauty villain Maleficent. Chenoweth will return to Broadway, playing the glamorous film star, Lily Garland, in the Roundabout Theatre Company's 20-week limited engagement of On the Twentieth Century in March. In addition to her starring roles on stage and screen, in 2009, Kristin also wrote an upliftingly candid, comedic chronicle of her life so far, in, A Little Bit Wicked, which was released by Simon & Schuster, and debuted at # 12 on the New York Times Hardcover Non-Fiction Best Seller List. Kristin is also a passionate supporter of charities which dedicate their time and efforts to helping those in need, such as: the Kristin Chenoweth Art & Education Fund, The Red Cross, Broadway Cares EFA, The Point Foundation, ASTEP, breast cancer awareness, adoption advocacy and organizations supporting animal welfare. Chenoweth earned a Bachelor's degree in Musical Theater and a Master's degree in Opera Performance from Oklahoma City University. She was also presented with Honorary Doctorate degrees from both the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and her alma mater, Oklahoma City University. Kristin is an inductee into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, as well as the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame.

In celebration of this weekend's D23 convention in Anaheim, California, we're happy to revisit this episode from August of 2018: Floyd Norman is an official Disney Legend, and so much more: Walt Disney's first full-time African-American animator, a contributor to such films as Sleeping Beauty and The Jungle Book, a disciple of Disney's legendary Nine Old Men, and a story man on such Pixar features as Toy Story 2 and Monsters Inc. What's more, as Leonard and Jessie have learned, he's a naturally funny man, a great storyteller, and a sweetheart of a guy with an irreverent sense of humor. He's even the subject of a first-class documentary called Floyd Norman: An Animated Life. Tune in for some great anecdotes and first-hand memories of Walt Disney.   Recorded live at That's from Disneyland, courtesy of its creators Richard and Nicky Kraft

What you'll learn in this episode: Why Native American jewelry has struck a chord with Australian shoppers Why jewelry is so important to Native American cultures, and the history of jewelry making in the Southwest Which characteristics to look for in distinct varieties of turquoise How to make the most of a trip to Indian Market Which Native American jewelry artists are ones to watch About Jennifer Cullen Jennifer Cullen is the owner of Four Winds Gallery, a jewelry gallery in Double Bay, Australia that focuses on jewelry of the American Southwest. Established in 1981, Four Winds boasts a collector's standard of traditional and contemporary North American Indian jewelry, pottery, sculptures, graphics and textiles. The gallery is the culmination of a long-term interest and passion for Jennifer.  Photos available on TheJewelryJourney.com Additional Resources: Website Instagram Facebook Transcript: Sharon: Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Jewelry Journey Podcast. This is the second part of a two-part episode. If you haven't heard part one, please go to TheJewelryJourney.com. Today, my guest is Jennifer Cullen of Four Winds Gallery, an unusual jewelry gallery located in Double Bay, Australia. Welcome back.    What about coral? You have the reefs there, and there's a lot of coral in Indian work, but I hear it's becoming very hard to find now.   Jennifer: We have no coral in Australia to work with. It's protected, and we have a lot of trouble with—what is it? The crown-of-thorns starfish. They're doing a lot about coral beds on the northeast coast of Australia, with all that big, beautiful coral. They're doing a lot to maintain that at the moment. All the coal that has been historically worked into North American Indian jewelry was traded in by the Spanish originally, so it's all Mediterranean coral. The earliest coral strands in the 1800s were drilled and rolled strands of beads that they would wear around the neck with cotton sinew or twill, or whatever was strung through the center of it. And there were webs of coral. They would wear ropes of heishi done in clamshell. Later on, as they got better equipment, there was turquoise heishi and jet heishi. Heishi is the traditional word for a handmade, small bead.    Originally the coral was traded. The Native American groups loved the color. They had previously found their ability with color by working with the spiny oyster shell that comes out of the Gulf of Mexico. The spiny oyster shell comes in colors from reds similar to coral into purple and intense orange, like an Hermès orange. It's a beautiful color. I actually have a lot in my jewelry because I love it. I sell a lot of it here, and I wear a lot of it. I love the orange. I've always had a passion for these oranges and reds and purples. People in the Southwest embraced it pretty rapidly and started to incorporate it into their jewelry findings and body adornment. So, in the 1800s, it was works of coral predominantly.    Then they started to learn how to work silver. That didn't start until about 1868. Prior to 1868, there was very little in silver. They actually started by heating up copper and brass cooking utensils. They were soft materials that were exposed to them by the soldiers and the Spanish and the Mexicans, and they'd make it into jewelry findings and body adornment. Then they discovered silver, which is found in the Southwest of the USA, and they started to make that into metal findings to house the stones. That was the process.    When chatting at length with another one of my mentors, Lori Phillips, she used to talk to me a lot about the development of American Indian jewelry, history and development. She was a big dealer and collected from Pasadena in California back in the day. I was very close friends with her. Anyway, she taught me a lot. They started setting coral into silver vessels and housings and cabinets in about the early 1950s. There wasn't a lot of coral set into jewelry, other than strands or ropes of coral beads, prior to 1952. So, finding the odd piece of jewelry that did have a bit of coral in it is a very unusual thing.    Generally, most of the coral still comes from the Mediterranean. It's traded in now by different dealers. It's become very expensive and sought after because they're protecting the coral beds in Italy. It's getting harder and harder to get it.    Sharon: It's harder, yeah.   Jennifer: Yeah, but it's not Australian coral at all.   Sharon: You're so knowledgeable. Do you put on educational seminars besides flying in artists?   Jennifer: We used to write articles here in Sidney for the Antiques and Art Galleries Magazine every quarter. There were some pages of photographs and examples of things. Probably about seven years ago, when the paper folded and everything went digital, that's when we ended up with the New South Wales Art and Antiques Magazine. Maybe it went down into Victoria as well and Melbourne south of us, which is not a big town, but it's a cultural center. So, I used to write articles. I have been meaning to put together all those articles I wrote for so many years and so many editions of the Antiques and Art Galleries Paper in New South Wales and compile them into a book. That's on the to-do list. I haven't gotten around to doing that yet.   I used to do talks occasionally at clubs or different places where women would want to be spoken to about wearable body adornment. I did some radio interviews with Dan Kotch back in the day. He's a finance and investment guy who does radio interviews with people to talk about things that are considered good investments, that hold their value and appreciate over time, which jewelry does. Up in the Blue Mountains I did some talks. I was invited to talk to groups of artists that lived up in the mountains who did various forms of artwork. They wanted to hear about American Indian art in general, the textiles, the jewelry, the pottery making, how it was done. I've also done interviews with a local radio station here. They invited me to do a few talks on their Sunday afternoon program about jewelry. So, I've done a fair bit.    I've done fashion magazines, Vogue and Harper's Bazaar and different things. I've done photoshoots of my jewelry over the years, where they've wanted to show unusual artwork. They often use it in their fashion shoots. They borrow jewelry and put it in their fashion shoots and give credit to the gallery, but then they'll ask me to write some information about the gallery and what's it all about, and then they'll put that into the magazine. Women of Individual Style was a thing that came out one time, and I was asked to be a part of that one issue. They talked about me and how I dressed and all the body adornment I wore and how I put it together. So, over 40 years, there have been quite a lot of things I've been asked to do. I haven't actually written a book and I haven't organized a group of talks. I probably could, but running a business, having staff, trading pearls, going on buying trips, organizing four exhibitions a year, it's a lot. You do the best with the bulls that are the most important for you.   Sharon: No, I understand. You have a lot of time left to do that.    I've never been in the Indian Market. I've always wanted to go, but I've been scared off by the crowds.    Jennifer: It is hectic. It is very hectic.   Sharon: Yes. You say when you come back, you have a buying exhibition?   Jennifer: Sure. I'm over there, often Instagramming things I'm finding and putting it on Instagram just to show people things I'm finding while I'm away. Then, when I get back, I have to ship everything home to Sidney and we go through it. We take a nice photograph of it, like a postcard, and I send it out. I have some 5,000 people on my mailing list. So, I send all my clients a huge postcard of beautiful jewelry. I'll have an odd, old carving in there or something to make it look beautiful. I send it out and say, “Hi, that's my latest buying trip. We'll be having a champagne opening”—it's usually the second week of September on a Saturday—“Please come see the collection, or you can view a lot of it online or you can email me.” My clients look forward to that because they're not all traveling to Santa Fe and the reservation, so it's as close to it as they can get.   Sharon: Absolutely. Where else are they going to get it, unless they go to Santa Fe?   Jennifer: And even then, you're so overwhelmed. There's so much product over there. All of it's handmade by Native American artists. It's a crazy time to do it with a lot of shops. It's hard to find good quality material that's authentic as well. But a lot of my clients do end up going on a holiday over there and want to be there.   Sharon: What are you looking for when you're there? You say it's hard to find the right things. What are you looking for?   Jennifer: I'm often hunting for early pieces that are by great artists, or things that are unusually aesthetically beautiful that impress me and are different to what I've found before. Or maybe it's similar to something I've found before, but I haven't seen something like that in a long time. It's a hunt for the rare and the unusual and the beautiful.    It's also visiting all my artists and seeing what is being made. In the winter, when they're planning to bring it to market in the summer, I'm talking with them about what they're going to make during the year. Am I going to set up a show with some of them? Can they make money if I buy from them at the Indian Market? Because they're trying to sell to the tourists at retail price. As a representative, I have to buy at a wholesale price, so I can buy it and present it to my clients here for a reasonable price. We talk about what they might build or make during the year. We talk about all of that. Would they like to come for a show? When would it suit both of us? It can't be in August, because I'm in America, or in September because I do my returns from my trip show. I have three other shows I do with my sister.     Then I'm looking, not for a huge amount of them, but for artworks and artifacts that are interesting, that resonate with the Southwest. Recently I got an old hunting lodge elk horn chandelier with little parchment shades over the lights. My electrician has to rewire it for the Australian current to hang it in the gallery. We're still working on that project. We've got to get it rewired and hung up in the ceiling and get a secure hook, but I'm bringing things into the gallery that make people feel connected with the Southwest.    There's something about that culture that—I don't know. I don't particularly believe in past lives and that kind of thing, but there's something about that culture that so resonates with me. I can't really explain it, but I just love it. It's the only place I feel at home when I get out of the plane and the Albuquerque airport, and I rent the car and head out to Zuni or wherever I'm going. If I'm driving across to Prescott or different places, I feel quite at home. It's a weird sensation. I also feel it while I'm here on the edge of the ocean. Those are two places where there's a sense of freedom and expanse and openness that I love.    Sharon: I can understand that. I can understand both the ocean and Santa Fe, with the light and the sunsets.   Jennifer: What is it? The plains, the wide-open spaces. It's a very open, incredible feeling of freedom. I don't know how to explain it. It is beautiful, and Santa Fe is very pretty with the housing and the pretty streets. Everything is adobe-style, and I do love that as an architectural form. It's very lovely, but what really is amazing is driving around the country in the Southwest. It's so open. I just love it. Just talking about it, I love it.   Sharon: Is there turquoise all over the country, all over the U.S.?   Jennifer: Only in the Southwest, so Nevada, I think some in Utah, and the very southern states. It comes from copper and iron areas, where you find copper and iron is mined heavily, thus the color of the turquoise. It's developed in veins within these mines. A lot of the beautiful turquoise like Bisbee and Villa Grove and Lander and some of the very rare or early turquoises were from small pockets of turquoise mines that were mined out and are now exhausted. You can't get those stones anymore, unless you get them from jewelry that was made some time ago with this quality of stone. Maybe somebody has been sitting on some raw material that they've yet to make things out of. Sometimes you buy at auction or estates, and you find old jewelry that has great stones, but the jewelry is ugly, so you pull it apart and give it to an artist to remake into a great piece.    A lot of the turquoise you get today, which is Sleeping Beauty or Kingman or from more general mines, it's more prolific in availability. A lot of it has been stabilized or treated so you can work with it. It's stronger and easier to work with, but getting good, natural stone is always my preference. If it's high grade, it won't change much in color because it's very dense and quite glossy. If it's more medium in grade, it'll be more porous, so more vulnerable to moisture acquisition. It will vary in color slightly over the years depending on your body oil. Not as much in the desert in the Southwest. The atmosphere there doesn't change it too much. Here in Australia, we're very humid, so it changes much differently than it does in the desert area. There's something charming about that. It's like it's alive. It's like it takes on some tones and colors of blue and green and everything in between depending on the wearer, the humidity, what country you live in. It's a very personal stone. It's like the stone and the sea. It's always changing.    Sharon: Can you look at a piece of turquoise and tell where it's from or if it's old?   Jennifer: Yes, you can tell whether it's recent and hasn't been around for very long. You can generally tell whether it's high grade, medium grade or low grade, depending on the density, the patina, the veining, all that kind of thing. Labeling what mine it comes from is a very tricky process because you have all these different mines scattered around the Southwest. Manassa is traditionally green, Kingman is traditionally blue, Blue Gem is traditionally very glossy, high grade and more of an aqua color. You'll get variations within the mine as well that tend a little more green or a little less or more polished. So, it'll look a little bit like another mine.   Then how old is the piece? I've been in discussion with dealers who have been handling turquoise for a long time. That will also help you decide where that stone probably came from, because that was the sort of stone they were using back when Leekya, for instance, was carving his turquoise stones. He liked the gentle, aqua-colored turquoise, and that was a particular stone. A more recent stone, Sleeping Beauty, is a high-grade, intense bluish stone. If it's more recently made, it's probably going to be that rather than Villa Grove, which is an older, softer, very blue stone, more of a cornflower blue. So yes, like anything, whether it be opals, pearls, old furniture, textiles, whatever, if you do your thing for long enough, you get to know all about it.   Sharon: And that's how you learned? You didn't study it, right?   Jennifer: I have a whole library here of books on North American Indian art, jewelry, painting, sculpture, kachinas, pottery, textiles. I've written articles all my life. I've been over there twice a year. I've looked at millions of pieces of jewelry, although not as many pieces of textiles and paintings and sculptures or pottery. So, it's experience, knowledge, rating, education. The hands-on piece is always significant. People like Teal McKibben, Lori Phillips, people who were before me, women in particular who I identify with, who spent their lives studying American Indian art. They've all passed away now or they're in their 80s. They taught me a lot, saying “Look at these. Look at how this is made and look at this stone.” It's been a life's education.   Sharon: It sounds like it. What's your favorite kind of jewelry?    Jennifer: My passionate thing that I love more than anything to this day is very early Navajo silversmithing and turquoise. That's what they call Villa Grove, or a sky blue turquoise stone. It's not as high-end as Blue Gem or Manassa or Lander or Indian Mountain—there's a whole lot of them—but I love the color. I love the soft, simple, understated, courageous and brave form of silver that the Navajo did in their silversmithing from learning to be blacksmiths, which is what they were first told they had to do. They were on the reservations shoeing the horses of the soldiers and the English and the French. Their talent for silversmithing evolved from that, with their strength and the creativity and simplicity and the beautiful execution of silver body adornment.    Originally it was all men making the silver things, so there's a masculine tone to it that I love as well. That's become the thing now. I'm wearing my salmon clothes. The balance of putting beautifully hammered, wonderful silver jewelry with simple sets of turquoise stone, on me, I just love it. Sometimes things are so beautiful. You look at so many things. How you can you tell why this one is better than this one? I say, “Well, look at it. Can't you see?” But that's me. So, that's probably my most passionate thing, early Navajo silver jewelry.   Then, after being in the business and dealing with it for a long time, I grew to really love Leekya Deyuse and Zuni carved turquoise jewelry. Leekya Deyuse was a Zuni carver that was probably working from the 1920s to the 1950s. He died in the 1960s fighting fires in Zuni. He was not all that old. Anyway, I have grown to love very much Leekya's carved turquoise. Not only turquoise; sometimes he did coral figures of leaves and bears and birds. His work is very hard to get, finely carved. He was one of the first guys who set the precedent of carving fetish necklaces on little animals and necklaces. He was one of the first to take the format of shell and stone and create it into a little medicine or good luck charm or protection from an animal. Then he took it another step further and started threading it on beads so you could wear it like a necklace. They are probably my two most favorite things to look for, really great Navajo jewelry and really great pieces by Leekya. There is certainly much more to it, but that's it if I was going to put it in a nutshell.   Sharon: Who should we keep our eyes on then?   Jennifer: Who's up and coming?   Sharon: Yes.   Jennifer: Cheryl Yestewa has been around for quite a long time, but I find her jewelry just fabulous and exploding in creativity in various ways. She works out of the desert, but she's into sea inspiration. Anyway, she's a wonderful artist.    I think Keri Ataumbi, who is—let me get the tribe right. Keri Ataumbi is Kiowa. She does really great work. I'm very excited about her work. We've had a couple of exhibitions of her work now, and she should be coming to her first exhibition in Sidney this Christmas.    Denise Wallace is a legend so she's not up and coming at all, but I think her son, David, is a great carver. Carving free form in ivory is a very difficult and challenging thing to do, and I think he's got a gift. I think David Wallace is somebody to watch. He's not putting himself out very much yet, but I think he's great.    I think for lapidary work—and she's been doing it for a while—she's the daughter of Cheryl Yestewa. Piki Wadsworth does the most beautiful lapidary. I think she just grows and excels and gets better and better at what she does. She's Hopi. I think these are the people that come to mind at the moment.    Every time I go down into Gallop, I have a look at different artists' works that are up and coming. A lot of them are doing some really interesting work, but a lot of them aren't wanting to go to Santa Fe or get high-profile or get noticed. I have to rely on people I know from that region to collect their work during the year. Then I go to them and see what they've made.   Sharon: It sounds very exciting. Thank you so much for being with us. It's been great talking with you.   Jennifer: It's been my pleasure and so much fun. I hope you do come to the Indian Market one day.   Thank you again for listening. Please leave us a rating and review so we can help others start their own jewelry journey.

The hero is a central figure in our myths and stories. The hero can often provide inspiration or comfort. These stories can help us find our courage or feel a bit more powerful. The image of the hero is also a burden. Hero narratives in the dominate culture have combined with modern myths of the individual and individualism to paint a picture of the solo actor, the person who battles against enemies or the odds alone. The hero we imagine today, feeds the terrible loneliness of our time. And yet there are alternatives, and these can even be found in stories that have been framed or reshaped as hero narratives. The fairy tale "Sleeping Beauty," also known as "Briar Rose," is one example.Lots of storytellers and crafters of story, psychologists, and cultural commentators are engaged with our notion of the hero today, but the role of the hero in our stories and in our lives is something that each of us needs to consider. How does the powerful influence of the hero image and heroic rhetoric affect you?

Damian Sandys is currently bringing his talent to the Broadway stage as The Kite Runner's associate director. The theatre director talks about the difference between the UK production and Broadway production of “The Kite Runner”, the importance of humor in the show, and how its US audiences are more vocal. He shares how he started getting into theatre directing, from watching and learning from his dad to meeting Cameron Mackintosh which opened up opportunities for him. Damian recalls how after graduating, he ended up taking a teaching job at a boy's boarding school where he taught English and Drama, and after putting on shows at the Edinburgh Festival, a producer who watched one of his shows offered him a directing job. He talks about working for the show, “NewsRevue” which was influential in his career. Damian also shares how he got connected with "The Kite Runner" production, why he decided to stay with the show for this long, and why he thinks a line from the show, "there's a way to be good again" is the key to life. Damian Sandys is a theatre director with productions across the UK, Edinburgh Fringe, the West End and internationally. He graduated from Oxford University and has directed over 50 productions at the Edinburg festival, including “Shakespeare For Breakfast: 25th Anniversary”. He has been the resident/associate director for several West End and international tours of “Priscilla Queen of the Desert”, “The Kite Runner”, and more. His other directing credits include “Aladdin”, “The Taming of the Shrew”, “Beauty and the Beast”, and “Sleeping Beauty” among others. He's also been a part of the teams responsible for the London revival of “Tick, Tick... Boom!”, “When Midnight Strikes”, and “West Side Story”.

While this episode features multiple guests, Elise McGouran has so much to say about this movie we should have just recorded the discussion with her, that's how much Alex has to edit her in. Much like with Sleeping Beauty, Terra and Alex cover so much ground that this would be far too long an episode description.

The Hey, Boomer guest today is Stella Fosse, writer, advocate for older women's empowerment and workshop leader.  Our topic today was Sexy Stories for and about Women Over Sixty. Stella reinvented herself from a technical writer, to a writer of erotica for and about older women. Her first book, Aphrodite's Pen: The Power of Writing Erotica after Midlife, includes lots of how to's and prompts to get your started. Her latest book, "Brilliant Charming Bastard" was released this year. We talked about claiming our narrative at this stage of our lives.  We discussed the difference between Elderotica and Seasoned Romance Stories.  When I asked about being objectified as sexual beings, Stella turned that around to finding the freedom of being able to walk down the street without being harassed, and the freedom to be more playful in our relationships. We talked about the benefit of finding supportive writers groups, both in person and online.  It was a fun discussion. I think you will enjoy it. Episode Takeaways: 1. Read books, and watch movies that show possibilities of this part of life. 2. Find ways to build creativity into this part of your life. 3. Enjoy your body. 4. Learning and sex until rigor mortis.  Thanks so much for listening.

My name is Wendy Green and I am your host for Hey Boomer. And hey, Boomer is a show for those of us who believe we are never too old to set another goal or dream, a new dream. It is for lifelong learners who want to find meaning and purpose in their lives and live the best part of their life in this next chapter. Every year I put together an Alzheimer's walk team and every year I get a bunch of people that come and walk with me and we raise money. Last year, we hit the championship level. We raised over 1000. So this year I am asking you to join our team. There's a couple of ways you can do this. You can join the local team here in Greenville, South Carolina, and walk with us and help raise money for that. Or you can join our our hey boomer team and walk in your community. So for now, I have a Greenville team. I have a hey boomer team in California and I have a Hey Boomer team in Maryland. And anybody that joins our team, I'm going to give them this cute, hey, boomer hat so that you can wear that when you walk and you can wear it afterwards proudly as a member of Hey, Boomer. So all you have to do is go to act.Alz.org/goto/HeyBoomer, join our team and support the hopeful end of Alzheimer's. I also want to say that I am not anti retirement. anti retirement, but I don't recommend it for almost anybody because retirement means withdrawal. And if you withdraw from life, you really are giving up on life. And what happens is that every day starts to run into the next. You become bored and lethargic. You find yourself spending more time on the couch than doing just about anything else. And I want to encourage you, as I said in the opening, this show is about living your best life in this next chapter. So I have a six-week group program called What's Next? And you can find it and get more information about it on HeyBoomer.Biz/coaching. There you'll find a synopsis of what the group coaching experience is about. A little video from me and an opportunity to sign up for a free 20 minute consultation so that I can learn more about you. You can learn more about me. And then we can make a decision whether this is a good fit for you or not. So there's no obligation. Check it out at heyboomer/coaching and get set or get your mojo back if you feel like you've lost it. Now to talk about what's coming up. Kathleen, A Berry PhD and coeditor of "Unmasked: Women write about sex and intimacy after 50" said, "When we think of erotica, we don't usually link it together with middle aged women." In fact, it is middle aged women who are finally liberated to fully experience the sensuous delight of erotica. They have reached the point in their lives when they are no longer encumbered by the risk of pregnancy, nor zapped by the physical ramifications of menopause. And there's another aspect to this topic. Ageist thinking says that older women become matronly and we lose our beauty. And the idea of older women having sex seems almost unappealing in our society. There are a few examples of women over 50 being sexual in the media. I'm sure that or I hope that you all have seen Grace and Frankie with Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda. And there's a new movie out with Emma Thompson called Good Luck to You, Leo Grande. And in this movie, Emma Thompson plays a widow who has never had a satisfying sex life. She is curious and she's nervous. She hires a sex worker. This movie explores her journey to becoming comfortable with her own sexuality. It is available on Hulu. Good luck to you, Leo Grande. So today we're going to talk about the idea that we are all sensual beings into our sixties, seventies, eighties and beyond, and that we can all make our own decisions about what is right for us regarding sex at this stage of our life, really at any stage of our life. So let me bring Stella on and introduce you. Hello, Stella. I want to thank. Thanks for having. Me. Oh, I've been looking forward to this. And so is the audience. I've heard a lot of people say, Oh, I'm going to watch. I'm going to watch. So brief bio. Stella is a former biotechnology writer who advocates for the creative power of older women. Her books include "Aphrodite's Pen: The Power of Writing Erotica After Midlife", "The Erotic Pandemic Ball," And ooh, did you hear the Thunder? And her debut novel at age 68, "Brilliant, Charming Bastard." She is currently teaching romance writing to seniors and writing a book about creative retirement. Stella lives with her partner in North Carolina. You can follow her on Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram, and she blogs on her website, which we will get to, and I'll share all of her contact information later. So, Stella. Yes. So, you know, in my coaching practice, I always talk to people about reinvention. And many people have a really hard time thinking about what they're going to do next. They had their career and That was that was who they defined themselves as they didn't have an idea of what was next. So I'm curious about your reinvention journey from tech writer to writer of erotica and the ups and downs of that. Oh Well, I always wanted to be a writer. In fact, my childhood goal was to write my first novel by the time I was 25. So I missed that by 50 years. As you said, it's never too late. So I went to college in the early seventies when there was a total double standard about writing anything sexual. Philip Roth's novels were literature. Erica Jong's novels were trash. And so that's that's what it was like when I came up. And I certainly never thought about writing erotica back then after college, after I got my degree in creative writing, which when I moved to New York, I was told would get me. If I had that plus $0.25, I could get a ride in the subway. So I went back to school, got a master's in biology, and had a career writing FDA submissions, which are about as asexual as you can get. And when I was starting to think about graduating from that career, if we don't like the word retirement, maybe we can. Graduation. I happened to read an article in the New York Times Book Review section by a romance author who was also in her late fifties, who was advising her sister writers that if they wanted to get published, they should write romance characters in their twenties. And I thought, that's pretty outrageous. Why should women of a certain age have to closet themselves when they write? And around that time, a friend of mine Linx Cannon started a reading series at an Oakland bookstore called Dirty Old Women, and she invited all her friends to write erotic stories and come and read them before an audience. And I thought, Well, why not? So that's that's how this started. So I mean, I think if you asked me to come to a book reading and writing erotic stuff called Dirty Old Women, I would probably be pretty nervous. Were you nervous at first? Yeah, I sure was. But, you know, we had a great crowd every time, and it was really a mixed age crowd. There were a lot of younger women in the audience who would come up to us afterwards and thank us and say, you know, we we thought that part of life ended around age 40. So thank you for showing us that that's not the case. I've come to think of this kind of writing as a political act, really, as part of our part of liberating ourselves. So a political act and an educational act in a sense, for the young people that there is. You can continue to look forward to this. That's right. This doesn't just there's not a not a cutoff date. Right. Right. So in Aphrodite's pen, you talk about the power of writing erotica. As older women, what do you mean by that power? I think I think there are a couple of kinds of power involved. One is the power to claim back our narrative for ourselves. You mentioned earlier that there's this there's this idea in the culture. There's this sexist age trope that older women have outlived their own sexuality. And when we write, even if even if a woman writes a story and saves it for herself, she's reclaiming her own agency because, you know, sexuality isn't something society gives us or something society can take away. It's innate in us. And when we write, we reclaim that for ourselves. And if we decide to publish a story, then we're pushing back on this big cultural narrative. I think of. I think of culture as sort of like an ocean liner. You know, it's going in one direction. It's big, has a lot of there's a lot of inertia. But if if everybody gets out their teaspoon, writes their story and starts, you know, pushing the water, we can we can start turning the culture in a better direction if a lot of us are writing our stories. Well, if you've never written anything like that before. Yeah, how would you even get started? Well, I think, you know, if you're not in a community that has a dirty old women reading series, you can still you can certainly get a copy of Aphrodite's Pen, which has exercise, writing exercises, writing prompts, all kinds of ideas for how to create characters, how to mine your own life experience. Because by now all of us have lots and lots of experience that we can draw from in creating plots and creating characters. And then the book also has interviews with women, older women who write erotica, talking about their experience and examples of stories that they've written. So you can really get a sense of of this what I think of as a developing crone culture. Hmm. Hmm. So I, I have to tell you, I mean, I was so a naive, I guess is the right word about all of this. You know, I was I was thinking, well, there's not really going to be much of a plot. It's just going to be one sexual act after another. And and when I read your book, Brilliant, Charming Bastard, there was quite an involved plot there and not nearly as much sex as I expected there to be. And it was tastefully managed. So it was a big surprise to me. And you called this form of this genre of writing. Like, what did you call it? Elderotica. Elderotica. And and the way they categorize it. So seasoned, well there is a category of seasoned romance. Seasoned romance. So when I was speaking earlier about that article, I read by that the woman advising other women writers to make their characters young. She was writing romance, which is a really structured form. And I sort of thought I was writing romance when I wrote Brilliant Charming Bastard. But now that I'm teaching about romance, I realized that I did not follow the rules. Romance. Romance has a very set structure for how you set up your plot and how your characters interact and what happens at the end. And it's really about a happily ever after ending. And my book is more a lot of people hate the phrase women's literature. But I think mine is more like seasoned women's literature. But there is a whole category now called season romance. Publishers are realizing that we are a big market. There are a lot of people now, more and more people in their fifties, sixties and seventies. And we don't necessarily want to read about people in their twenties. Right. So what's the difference then between Seasoned Romance and Elderotica? Oh, that's a good question. So. So if you think about again, if you think about what romance is, it's it's really centered around one relationship between two people and they have to have a happily ever after ending. Erotica is more like how one person develops, one main character develops through her sexual experiences and and becomes a more fully developed person by the end of the story. So it's it's it's a different it's a different genre. And then there's porn, which is a whole different thing. Right, right, right. So I would say that Good Luck To You, Leo Grande is Elderotica. Have you seen it? Oh, I love that movie. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. Because she definitely develops into a more fuller person. Yes. And she's really developing her relationship with herself. Yes. Not that the other person is objectified because he's not. I think he's he's he's a fully developed character in his own right. But but the the real theme of the story is that she comes into her own, as you said earlier. Yeah. Yeah, I guess it is sort of. It is elder erotica. I hadn't thought of that. Yeah. Yeah, I loved it. It is. I mean, at first I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, but yeah, it was so brave. Yes. So so talking about objectification. Yeah. Right. So when we're young, you know, society, I mean, sex sells and ads, right? They encourage young women to dress sexy, wear the highest heels, you know. And it is a very objectified way of gaining attention as older women, of course, we still want to look lovely and sexy. And how do we how do we do that so that our minds are not telling us? Yeah, but that's just objectifying yourself. That's a really interesting question. I think. I think there comes a point in most of our lives where we can walk past a construction site without being harassed. And and, you know, that is, you know, people talk about invisibility of older women. There is that upside. There is that freedom. And in that freedom, I really think there's an opportunity, again, to to look at our own agency, to claim our own sexual being and to not feel like we're always having to fend off unwanted attention. So I like to look at the freedom side of it. And and once we've once we're kind of in that state, once we're in that stage, when we reclaimed our freedom, then I think it gives us room to be more playful in our relationships because because we have freed ourselves of that concern about being objectified. Not that I mean, you can you can play with objectification in a consensual relationship. That's something there's that wonderful book, Mating in Captivity, that talks about talks about that. But but again, I really think that this notion of invisibility has a huge positive aspect for us as a women. It's a great way to phrase it. Yeah, because we don't have to. We don't have to be harassed walking down the street. No, but we can be free and playful on our own terms when we want to. With whom we want to. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. I know. We've got a big thunderstorm coming up here. Thor Agrees with you. That's right. So so talking about the women's movement and the whole discussion about ageism. Now, you and I have both been involved in in those discussions in larger forums and, you know, the societal myth of women losing their sexuality like you talked about with the young people. So I'm curious how you think writing about sexuality or erotica or reading about it even can can help in that, dispelling some of those ageist myths? Yeah. Yeah. You know, we all grew up with women our age, grew up swimming in this gender age group without even realizing it. I mean, think about, you know, Sleeping Beauty and Maleficent. Think about Cinderella and the wicked stepmother. I mean, we we absorbed a lot of that before. We were old enough to have maybe have clear thinking about the fact that we weren't always going to be Cinderella's age someday. We were going to be the age of the stepmother. And what did that mean for us? So. So when we step back from those myths and start creating our own myths, I think that really gives us a lot of power and it gives us a new voice that's important for us as older women. So I think it's key to seek out as a reader, as a watcher of movies and shows. I mean, you mentioned some really powerful, significant shows. There are a lot of great books out there. I mentioned Erica Jong earlier. She wrote Fear of Flying as a young woman. She wrote Fear of Dying as an older woman, which is a great novel with a lot of sexuality about being in our sixties. These are ways that we can reclaim our our power through reading and writing and kind of we can reprogram ourselves away from all that sexist age stuff that we were exposed to when we were young. I do think there's power in that. You know, when we when we stay in our own heads and and tell ourselves the same old story over and over again, which we bought into because that's how we were raised. Seeing other examples like Grace and Frankie, like Leo Grande, you know, you start to say, Oh, well, there are other ways to look at this. And I love Erica Jong. Yeah, yeah, she's great. And, you know, there are more and more women writing from that vantage point now. Caroline Lee Arnold has a new memoir out called 51st Dates After 50. Which which is really fun. I got to got to interview her from my blog recently. And that's just one example I have on my website. I have a whole list of references for movies, shows and books because I really think it's important as a as a consumer of culture, to be mindful of what we are consuming and and look at the positive aspects of this part of our lives, because there are plenty of negative stories out there. Right. I think I'll try to link to that in the show notes. Oh. Yeah, because that would be good for everybody. So you're teaching a course now? Yeah. What is that course? It's called Thee and Me Could Write a Bad Romance. What is that about? Oh, so I. One day I just on a whim, I put up something on LinkedIn saying, I'm thinking about teaching this class. Thee and Me Could Write a Bad Romance. And a woman from an organization that provides lots of content for for older folks wrote to me and said, Oh, great, we want you to come teach this class. Well, of course, I had no curriculum. I just I just had this title. So that's when I started learning what romance is actually about as a genre, and that I actually had not written one. I thought I did, but I didn't. So. So I put together a curriculum. It's eight weeks long and we've been looking at the whole structure of romance, what act one looks like. Act two looks like Act three looks like how to build characters, how to build plot, how to make your scene conform to what you're looking for, how to construct dialogue that works the whole the whole thing. So it's been a lot of fun and I'm I'm looking forward to offering it again for a wider audience later on. And are most people going to end the course with a written story? Well, they're they won't end with full drafts of romance novels, but they'll end with a lot. They have everybody by now has a schematic with every scene they're going to write. They have descriptions of their main characters. They're supporting characters. They have a lot of their scenes written, and now they're working on love scenes, which is fun. That's great. So can they find out about this on your website? It's not up there yet. I will I will put it up there because as I said, I do want to offer this again in the fall. I'll be offering this class. So Stella's website is StellaFosse" FOSSE" and you can sign up for her newsletter at page.StellaFosse/What's-new? And you don't have to worry about that because as soon as you get in the website, you'll start getting these annoying invitations to sign up for the blogs and the newsletter. Yeah, so they're fun to read too, so I would encourage you to do that. So just a couple more questions. This one's a little bit more. Yeah. Okay. Realistic, let's say. All right. All right. So you're writing erotica, right? Sex at this stage of your life, our lives is not always easy, right? Women are not lubricating the way they used to. Men are not getting erections like they used to. And sometimes our knees hurt trying to get into position. So, I mean, you could make a comedy erotic story about that, but I'm wondering how you handle that in an erotic story. That's a really good question. So so there's a woman named Joan Price who writes she writes a senior advice column for Senior Planet on Sexuality, and she's written also some great books, including one called Naked at Our Age, which I highly recommend. And she reviews, by the way, she reviews sex toys from the standpoint of an older person and recommends vibrators and all kinds of sex toys. So she's a wonderful resource. I really recommend her. And when I read so, so I like to think about this from the flip side, I like to think about if I'm looking at what she has to say about senior sexuality. Then what is it that works well for us at this stage and focus on that. So for example, in one of her books, she talks about that that men have passed a certain age do really well sexually if they're standing because of the way blood flows. So so that inspired me to write a story in which a couple in their sixties at the end of the story, there's a there's a love scene where they're leaning against a vibrating dishwasher while they're they've been in the kitchen talking, and then they end up doing that. So so I think there are ways to incorporate the positives, the things that do work well into our writing. So and again, I really I really recommend Joan. I think she's a great. Great resource. Yeah, thanks. I'll have to check that out. And you put up a quote from Anderson Cooper, which I thought was hysterical. His mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, was 85 when she said to him, I'm going to write an erotic novel. And he said, those were the seven most horrifying words he'd ever heard. I haven't asked my kids how they would feel if I was to announce that. Maybe I will ask them. But how did your sons or daughters or how did your kids respond to this? You know, I love it when I love that quote. And when I put that up on Facebook, I'm Facebook friends with Janet Herdy, who some of your readers may know as the author of The Ethical Slut, a book that came out quite a while ago about polyamory. And and so my comment was, oh, my poor babies. And then and then her answer was, oh, mine too. So but actually, the interesting thing is so that's Stella Foster is a pen name. And the reason I chose a pen name is that I didn't want to embarrass my adult children any more than necessary, but they've actually been pretty cool about it. In fact, one of my daughters, who's a professional designer, designed the cover for Brilliant, Charming Bastard. So, yeah. I think that they I think that they they like the idea of empowering older women and that this is a way to do it. And after all, I have two sons and two daughters. My daughters are going to be older women at some point, too. So. So I think they get it surprisingly. Have they read your books? No. No, they. Don't. Not necessary. No, no, no. That's not for them. So what's next for you? What's coming down the pike? Well, I am in the middle of writing a book about creative retirement with a friend of mine, Stevie Jane Parks, who is a psychotherapist and an abstract painter. So she took up abstract painting after her former career was winding down. So. So we're we're in the middle of doing that. We're we're writing about lots of different topics, everything from housing to sexuality to creativity and play to just everything you can think of movement. And so that's great fun. And we're collecting anecdotes to include in that book from a lot of older women who've who've taken on new adventures after 60. So that's being fun. I also have decided that if I'm going to teach about romance, I'd better actually write a romance that actually is a romance. So, so in the in the in teaching this class, I've come up with an outline that I use as an example. And it's a, it's a, it's a vampire romance. So. So that can. Be pretty sexy, actually. Fun. There's already one out there. There's a there's a really good one out there called Forever 51. Oh, I don't know that. It's about a woman who becomes a vampire in the middle of menopause. So she's she's permanently in the throes of menopause. It's very fun to read. Oh, gosh. Now, you mentioned earlier that some some like if you really wanted to try and learn how to do this, you know, you certainly your book, Aphrodite's Pen is one way, but you also talked about writing groups. So I know you had some great groups out in California. Now you're in your new home in North Carolina. Are you finding other women that you can form a group with and write with? I'm. I'm involved in. So in North Carolina, we have this wonderful organization called the North Carolina Writers Network, which is a statewide organization there. They're like, you couldn't throw a rock without hitting a writer in North Carolina. There's so many. So I'm involved in the local chapter of that statewide organization. When I first got there, I walked in with a stack of Aphrodite's pen, which had just come out at that point, and I think they were somewhat taken aback by that. I bet they were. This California girl, what's up with her? But they've gotten used to me and I'm on the steering committee for that local organization now. So I think they've decided they can tolerate me, after all. But at this point, I would say a lot of. There's so much opportunity online to work with other writers all over the country. For example, I really recommend anybody who's interested in getting involved in writing to sign up with National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, which is based in the San Francisco Bay Area. People all over the country are writing first novels through NaNoWriMo. And actually, I have there are lots of local subgroups through NaNoWriMo, and there also are topically related groups. So for example, I have one on there for erotica writers. There are lots of opportunities no matter where you live. Yeah, the pandemic has changed things so much that doing things virtually is so much closer to the norm now than it was a couple of years ago. So true. That's so it's really, really opened up a lot of opportunities for for folks our age to do many things that we wouldn't have been able to do before. So how does that work? Well, yeah, but say I've never written before. Right? I write a blog, but I've never written a book. I've fantasized about it. But yeah, you know, I would like to want to creep in and sit in the very back row and like, don't ask me anything, let me just listen; harder to do on a virtual screen. But how does it work when you join a writing group? Well, a couple of things. One is, you know, there are books you can get that will just help you launch into writing from starting from zero. And my favorite and this is not about erotica, but my favorite book to to introduce people to writing in general is called Writing Open the Mind. It's by Andy Couturier, and it has all kinds of ideas and exercises for helping people look at writing as play and not judge themselves. And that's really key when you're when you're writing a first draft, when you're first getting involved in writing, to set aside your inner critic and be playful about your writing. So that's how I approach writing, teaching, writing. That's how I'm approaching the and me could write a bad romance because it doesn't matter if your first draft is bad, it's just play and it's fine. So that's, that's one thing. But yeah, I think it's important to find a safe. If you're going to find a writing group, it's important to find one that's a safe space where people are going to give you feedback that encourages you to keep going and not not nitpick. And. And when I when I run a writing group, I ask folks to give. The following kind of feedback. Listen to what the person is reading you and then write down the phrases that really grab you that seem really significant to you. Write down what you like and give the person that feedback that will help them to keep going. You know, I think I think those things are really significant. Yeah. Sometimes one or two phrases of compliments can take away some of that fear. So. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Well, this has been this has been really interesting. You know, I have I have read and watched more erotica this past week or so, getting ready for this show then probably ever. And it's really been interesting, though, Stella. It has helped. It has opened my eyes and acceptance in a lot of ways and. Yeah, yeah. Fun, yeah. You know, Maggie Kuhn, who founded the Gray Panthers had this motto, Learning and sex until rigor mortis. Keep learning. Keep having sex. That's the best advice ever. Well, before we went on, we talked about possibly you gifting a couple of downloads of your book, your newest book to some of our listeners. Do you want to tell people how you do it? And I will share your email address. Sure, I'm happy to do that. So the first three folks who write to me at Stella@StellaFosse.com, be happy to send you an E-copy of Brilliant, Charming Bastard. So just, just get on there and write to me. The book will come from book club and it may go into your spam or junk folder. So if you don't see the book in the next day or two, please check your spam and junk folders. Make sure that it's not hiding there. And if that doesn't work, write to me again and let me know and I'll we'll sort it out. So, okay, so it's the first three people. So you can't wait. We have more than that. We have a bunch of people watching so it's good. Yeah. It's Stella@StellaFosse "Fosse" .com. So drop her a note right now. Yeah. Get started on. Brilliant, charming bastard. Yeah. And I hope that lots of folks will sign up for the blogs and emails and also look look for the resources tab on the website. Because, again, we have lots of movies, shows and books that talk about the positives around your sexuality from a fictional standpoint. And also I have I have some of Joan Price's books up there as Resources to. Awesome. Thank you for what you're doing, Stella. Well, it's fun. It's a fun revolution. I like to. It's a fun revelation. So I always ask my guests for two or three takeaways. Okay, so what would you like to leave the audience with? All right. The first is one of the things we've been talking about this whole time, and that is read books and watch movies that show the possibilities of this part of life. It's easy to find the negative stuff, but if we're going to reprogram ourselves and look at the bright side, it's important to find those those books and movies and shows. And I'd say Caroline Arnold's new memoir, 51st Dates After 50, would be a great place to start. That sounds like fun. The second thing is find ways to build creativity into your life. Whatever works for you, whether that's cooking or painting or writing and and find people who enjoy the same thing you do so you can reinforce each other. Share, share information and resources and successes. And as I said earlier, National Novel Writing Month is a great free way to get involved if writing is a way that you want to be creative. The third thing is enjoy your body. Your body is a good gift. And you know, I took up weightlifting in my sixties. It's marvelous. Talk about helping you feel powerful. Go swimming, buy a vibrator. I mean, look at Joan Price's recommendations and and find something that works for you. And again, remember what Maggie KUHN said, learning and sex until rigor mortis. Great advice. Thank you, Maggie KUHN. Maggie, if you read her autobiography, she certainly took her own advice. All right. So we've been I've been sharing Stella's website information again. You can email her at Stella@StellaFosse.com So hopefully you get lots and lots of emails and questions and check out the resource page like she said. Absolutely. Join our walk to End Alzheimer's. Yes. The link for that is act.alz.org/goto/HeyBoomer and join the team, contribute to try and end this awful disease. You know, it's certainly our parents or us could be looking at that at some point. We don't want to! Connect with me about the What's Next coaching program, the six week group coaching program at HeyBoomer.biz/coaching. I'd love to talk to you 20 minutes. 20 minutes. That could change your life and really give you some insights into what's next for you. So check that out. This guest has been amazing. Well, thank you. Yes. And thank you for having me. Thank you for joining us. It's such an interesting conversation. And I want to tell you about my guest for next week. Her name is Minette Norman and we're calling the show Jumping Off into the Great Unknown. So both Minette and I have done this more than once, and we are going to share our stories and our experiences together. We talked about kind of interviewing each other, so that should be an interesting experiment. Minette's LinkedIn Profile says she helps leaders cultivate inclusive teams. She's a keynote speaker, a psychological safety certified practitioner and an upcoming author. And I thought, how cool is that? That she claimed it before her books out there. I am an upcoming author, so I thought that was pretty cool. And like Stella modeled for us today and like we all strive for "live with passion, live with relevance, and live with courage". My name is Wendy Green, and this has been Hey, Boomer.

What you'll learn in this episode: Why art jewelry is a way to reflect current times How Annette is trying to create an art jewelry gallery in Copenhagen Why people often don't understand art jewelry, even in cultures with a tradition of goldsmithing, art and design Why Americans are more willing to wear large statement pieces About Annette Dam Annette Dam is educated from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts in Norway in 1999 and has since worked conceptually and exhibition-oriented. Annette Dam's works have been exhibited at exhibitions in Denmark as well as internationally. In 2015 she was selected for the World Craft Council's European Prize for Applied Arts in Belgium. Annette Dam received the prestigious Skt. Loye award from the Kjøbenhavns Guldsmedelaug. Additional Resources: Website Instagram Klimt02 Photos available on TheJewelryJourney.com Transcript: For Danish artist-jeweler Annette Dam, the appeal of art jewelry lies in the challenge of making it. How do you turn an idea or feeling into a wearable piece of art? That's the question she asks before starting any piece. She joined the Jewelry Journey Podcast to talk about her upcoming exhibitions and projects; how people from different cultures approach art jewelry; and why she wants to help the Danish art jewelry scene thrive. Read the episode transcript here. Sharon: Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Jewelry Journey Podcast. This is the second part of a two-part episode. If you haven't heard part one, please go to TheJewelryJourney.com. Today my guest is artist-jeweler Annette Dam, speaking to us from Denmark. Welcome back.    You used the word concrete, which is exactly the word I used when I was making notes. I thought, “Oh my god, that's a real challenge.” You say that what you're doing is a little bit like a riddle. You're trying to make something concrete that you're visualizing in your mind, but you want to make it real. That must be very difficult.   Annette: It is sometimes, but for me it's also where a lot of my drive is. It's where I get challenged. I get very frustrated and say, “I don't know. How do I do this?” but that is what I think is exciting. I must like it even though I get so frustrated. I think it's very hard sometimes.   For instance, I had an exhibition a while ago called “When Complexity Moved In.” It was about getting older. When you get older and more experienced and more knowledgeable, you're able to see things from many different perspectives. You can see other peoples' reactions and you can see their points. You may not agree, but you can still see their view, and it's not black and white anymore. A lot of friends who are the same age as me have the same feeling. Life doesn't get easier. Even though you may know a lot more, you get more experienced, it seems like it's getting even more complex. All the grey, all the nuances, you get aware of them. How do I translate that feeling into jewelry? That is a real challenge.   Sharon: Yes, it sounds like it. It sounds like a brain twister.   Annette: Yes, it is, but that's where a lot of my energy comes from, this riddle that I have to solve to get it into a material. I make jewelry that, at least in my opinion, is somewhat wearable. Some might disagree. So, there's also a functional side to it, and I want it all to work together. Then you have a lot of ideas, and it's also about subtracting so it doesn't get confusing. That's a lot of elements in that creative process, but that's the one that drives me.   Sharon: That's interesting. I could see how you have to streamline things and say, “O.K., I have a lot of ideas, but they can't all go into this one piece.”   Annette: No.   Sharon: I was intrigued by your—I'm looking for the name of it, the silversmithing program.   Annette: Yeah.   Sharon: Tell us about that.   Annette: I can say that whenever I start a new project, I always want to learn something new, not only in terms of investigating an issue, but also technical skills when I want to investigate a material. I want to challenge myself a little bit in that department as well. There's always a part of me trying out new thinking, being a beginner at something within the project.    In this case, it has a title called “Trespassing.” It's about gender. It's about the balance between femininity and masculinity and power structures and stuff like that. It's things we talk about these days. It's also a way for me to educate myself within this area. I have two children, two daughters that are 18 and 20. They live in this, but I have to more actively educate myself in these gender themes. It's very interesting.    I started out doing these neckpieces that are a balance between a necktie and a traditional pearl necklace. It's a long process where I also have to deselect something to make it clearer. Where is the balance? How long should the tie be compared to the necklace before it's a necklace and not a tie? What does it really say? Does it say what I want it to say? That was a small beginning of it, but I had the chance to go to this very experienced, very good silversmith Carsten From Andersen. It was also something I got a grant for through the Danish Arts Foundation. I hadn't done a lot of silversmithing, and that's a hard technique. I had a little bit of teaching of it in school in Norway, but it has to be in your body in a way to actually do it. So, he's teaching me. I'm starting out doing these—are they called puff sleeves? Like the one Sleeping Beauty was wearing. It's clothes and a shoulder piece.   Sharon: In silver?   Annette: It's in silver, yeah. I'm a big silver fan. It also has references to and elements of the parade uniforms the military wears. It's morphing into a different plane with the balance between something innocent and very feminine and something very powerful and demonstrating military power. How can I make an interesting balance between that? I'm also making—what is it called? Like a jock strap.   Sharon: Yeah, a jock strap.   Annette: Combining that with a garter belt. It's a way for me to explore. So, I'm doing this project and learning this new technique. Part of the project will be shown at a small gallery Portabel, owned by Camilla Luin, in Norway in September. The first step in that project will be shown there and then we'll see where it goes.    Sharon: How long is this silversmithing program?   Annette: It's just him and I deciding. When I think I've done enough and when I'm finished with what we talked about. We're still not there, but it's really interesting.   Sharon: It sounds like it.   Annette: He's a great guy and he's so good at it. I'm so impressed.   Sharon: I can give you a lot of credit for wanting to embark on something like that. I like it when people explain things to me, when someone takes me on a tour of an art gallery and I say, “Oh yeah, now I see it, O.K.” I saw your neckpiece with the pearls and the tie. I saw it online, and now that you've explained it, I go, “Oh yeah, I get it. That's really interesting.”   Annette: Yeah, it combined those very traditional, classical, masculine, feminine accessories, and then combining them and seeing how it works out.   Sharon: That's really interesting. You say you like to exhibit things. Why is that? Why are exhibitions important to you?   Annette: I don't know. I think the pieces that I do, they relate to a topic, and it feels like I have this conversation doing it. I have conversations with myself, maybe with colleagues, family. But then to see it through someone else's eyes when the audience comes, those discussions are really valuable to me. I gain a lot from them, so I like to exhibit. I like to make bigger pieces. I know they are not production work, where I will not sell 10 of them, or thousands of them, but I still like to do them. I like to have this conversation between myself and the audience and the gallerist and whoever is there. It's very giving for me.    Sharon: You mentioned the question marks in people not exactly understanding when you say artist-jeweler. Did they understand it more in Norway or is it just in general?   Annette: A little bit more, actually. Yeah, they do. They have an art tradition. It's a recent culture for doing craft in general. In my opinion, it's more valued there. They appreciate it more. It was a good place to study. They didn't question me as much.    Sharon: They didn't say, “What are you talking about?”   Annette: I get questioned a lot in Denmark, but not necessarily other places.   Sharon: Interesting.   Annette: Isn't it?   Sharon: Yes. I know that at one point you lived in the States, in California, I think. Did you do your crafts—   Annette: No, my husband is from California. I have never lived there.    Sharon: O.K. I was wondering if you were doing art jewelry. Have you tried exhibiting here?   Annette: No, I'm represented by Charon Kransen, among others.   Sharon: By whom? Oh, Charon Kransen.   Annette: I've been traveling a lot doing exhibitions in the States, but I never worked there or lived there. I find that the American audience, they are braver in a way. They appreciate some of my bigger works that I would never sell in Denmark. As you know, there are a lot of collectors in the U.S. We don't have collectors in Denmark yet. We're working on it, but they're just braver in wearing extravagant jewelry in the US. They don't mind having those conversations. I think if they wear a big piece that has a lot to say, they know they're going to be questioned and they will have a conversation. I don't know if the Danes don't really want that, but the Americans, they don't mind it. They like it, right?   Sharon: That's interesting, because I know the pieces you have online, and from what I've seen, I don't consider your pieces really big. They're not small, but they're not huge. It's not like wearing a pectoral.    Annette: I totally agree. My jewelry is not that out there. They're not that weird, but that's a way to come for Danish wares.   Sharon: Do you see the market growing there for art jewelry?   Annette: No.   Sharon: No?   Annette: No, but I see it growing in other places, in other countries.   Sharon: In Scandinavia?   Annette: Throughout the world in general it's growing. I'm very pleased, but not in Denmark.   Sharon: Interesting. I'm surprised to hear that.   Annette We have a long tradition of making jewelry, so it concerns that we don't have an education for art jewelery at a higher level anymore. If you want to be educated within art jewelry, you have to go abroad nowadays.    Sharon: What happened to the school?   Annette: It got closed down. They kind of made a school at this art academy, but they exchanged it for accessories, and that's not art jewelry. They kind of diminished that specific field within the accessory thing.   Sharon: It seems like there's a market in Canada. You're working on a project, the Nordic Bridges, in your exhibit in Toronto. Tell us about that.   Annette: Yeah, I was very pleased to get invited to this exhibition called Animal, Vegetable, Mineral. I was invited by Melanie Egan. She's a curator at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto. In the year 2022, there's this project called the Nordic Bridges, which is a collaboration between the Nordic countries and Canada. The Harbourfront Centre is leading this project. There are exhibitions, venues with literature, film, dance, performance, gastronomy as well, all taking place at different places in Canada. It's a huge project. This is a part of it, this jewelry exhibition where there's one artist from each of the Nordic countries and I think six from Canada. I like the title.    Sharon: What does it mean?   Annette: It's a guessing game. I don't know. Do you have it in the U.S., a guessing game where the first question, at least in Canada, is animal, vegetable or mineral? In Denmark, it would be—how do I translate it? Is it living in the water, on earth or is it flying? You have to guess an animal in Denmark, but in Canada, I guess it's a little bit different. But this is the game, and that's the ...

Media is all around us - movies, music, tv, online videos, reels, TikToks, and more. And, there are as many parenting strategies around media as there are types of media. How do we safeguard our kids around media in today's culture? Spoiler Alert: We aren't going to talk about what to watch per se, but rather how to watch.  In this episode I'll talk about what it could look like for us to raise not just haphazard watchers but discerning media consumers. Of course, we should exercise wisdom with what our kids watch and listen to, but also, as moms we're in the business of teaching men to fish.  Let's teach our kids to become discerning viewers. I'll give you some handlebars to foster discussions about movies or TV with your kids and to get them thinking about what they're watching too. “We want our children to know the one good story so well that when they see Luke Skywalker, Harry Potter, Frodo, Anne of Green Gables, Ariel, and Sleeping Beauty they can recognize the strands of truth and deception in them.” (Karalee Reinke, in Ep 27).  “O Discerning Spirit,  Who alone judges all things rightly,  Now be present in my mind and active In my imagination as I prepare to engage  With the claims and questions of diverse cultures Incarnated in the stories that people tell.”  A Liturgy Before Consuming Media, Every Moment Holy by Douglas McKelvey Links Mentioned:   Feeding the Mouth That Bites You  by Kenneth Wilgus, PhD  VidAngel Filtering Service Related Episodes: Family Movie Moms :: Amanda White [Ep 27] Annie, Into the Woods, & Night at the Museum 3 :: Family Movie Moms [Ep 53] Summer Movie Edition :: (Inside Out, Tomorrowland) :: Family Movie  Moms [Ep 79] Mockingjay & Big Hero 6 :: Family Movie Moms [Ep 49] How to Train a Dragon 2 :: Family Movie Moms [Ep 31]  Movie Discussion Guides Meet the Robinsons :: Family Movie Discussion Guide Big Hero 6 :: Family Movie Discussion Guide Family Movie Discussion Guide : “Cars” (Pride & Humility of Lightning McQueen) “The LEGO Movie” Family Discussion Guide Frozen :: Family Movie Discussion Guide Using God's Story to Analyze Movies Dolphin Tale 2 :: Family Movie Discussion Guide (& Review)  Featured Sponsors:  Caraway - Visit Carawayhome.com/DMA to take advantage of this limited time offer for 10% off your next purchase.  GladSkin -  Gladskin is offering listeners 15% off plus free shipping on your first order at gladskin.com/DMA.  Ladder - Go to LadderLife.com/dma today to see if you're instantly approved.
