I have been really busy with kids and jewelry commitments, with a mild funk thrown in the mix. So I apologize for not checking in on all the lovely blogs that feel like home to me. There don't seem to be enough hours in the day and something had to give. So I put blogging and housework aside for a while. But I am back :-) And during the week, I will start visiting all you lovely ladies (and guy) again.
I was vending at a festival this weekend. And what sold the most was.....Rocks! Never underestimate simplicity.
I make jewelry to sell and to give away. I think some pieces are meant to be free. But I also make jewelry that I like to make and I do not worry what others suggest anymore ("more color" "make it for petite people" "make it for bigger people" "your prices are too high" "your prices are too low". You know. You've heard it too. And surprisingly enough, I heard none of that at this show...maybe they said it but I just didn't hear it because I chose not to hear it. Or maybe they legitimately did not say it. I am not sure. Either way, I didn't have to defend myself, so all was good.)
Simple. Understandable. Accessible. A focal point or a rhythm to the piece. That is what works for me.
Tell us a bit about your style and what makes a good piece for you.
And a very fond farewell to my favorite rock necklace of the year that came off the shores of Lake Michigan one year ago this month...Life certainly is a Circle.
