- into an unfamiliar, round hole and honest to god, switching the way you think can cause great fatigue, frustration and that dreaded F word FEAR! I'm old enough to know that all of those things are needed if you want to get out of your comfort zone.
What is that place of comfort for me? "Oh that's pretty :) Maybe someone will like it."
That's been really good for me for the last few years because every time I created something I learned so much of the nuts and bolts of the craftsmanship of my jewelry.
Place of discomfort? "I'm building a business." A business is something that will help sustain my life as I want to live it. With that goal comes planning jewelry that can be produced in a timely fashion, designs that will appeal to a larger market, and an artist who can have a day off every now and then. Wouldn't that be lovely?
I started my journey into jewelry making in 2005 while I was working in the Berkshires in Massachusetts, an area inundated with amazing artisans. I started with glass, which led to silver, which led to inlay, which led to joy.
