I’m Susan Pridham and I am 50 percent owner of Orenda and 100 percent owner of Blue Ruth Jewelry, which we sell here at Orenda.
I try to schedule some bench time to make sure that I’m making jewelry and trying to keep up with my stock but then there’s also just the daily routine of the store, customer service, getting orders in, pricing them, cleaning up and merchandising.

We also sit down with the chef and find out what we’d like to have for that day.READ
