Do you Zoom? If you are telecommuting during this global pandemic, you have likely had a meeting or two with your coworkers on Zoom. Zoom is a way to meet up online and discuss business. But, you can also use this technology to stay connected and network. We have been staging meet ups. We are discussing jewelry. We are making jewelry and having fun. Zoom allows us to show you multiple jewelry designers at the same time. It is a jewelry experience with multiple hosts and perspectives. We think you are going to have a lot of fun watching our meet ups. Make sure you check them out live on Facebook. We value your input during our live shows and can answer any questions you have.
Zoom is a video conferencing tool. Users can opt to share video or avoid it. It is perfect for an office meeting that needs to include a lot of people. And it is great for intimate gatherings of communities that have shared interests. Since a good deal of us are staying quarantined and avoiding the public, we figured Zoom would allow us to stay connected and share our lives, even during this time of social distancing.
Zoom Jewelry Making Parties And Meet Ups
COVID-19 does not have to mean abandoning your pastimes. With Zoom, you can watch a jewelry meet up without leaving the house. It might not be as fun as a make and take at your local bead store, but it is a fun way to discuss beading with your fellow crafters from the safety of your own home. Zoom has allowed us to make jewelry with each other and discuss shop with people that love making jewelry. Join us for a look at our beading parties!
Our Zoom parties are viewable for our friends and community, but don't worry, we are not asking you to join the Zoom app. We are simply using the platform to share a new interview style format with you. We air our Zoom meet ups live on our Facebook page. If you join us live, you can pick our brain and share your jewelry tips with other viewers. If you miss the live show, you can find the video on our Facebook videos. We also post replays on our YouTube channel. YouTube is a great way to check out our videos if you do not use Facebook (we know not everybody enjoys Facebook).
