Being an artist is a challenge. You are creating from within for all the world to see….. and critique. I guess you learn to build up some thick skin and keep a firm upper lip. It is great to hear compliments and praise from your family and friends. But much better to hear compliments from experts in your field! So much better!!
I was asked to present several necklaces that I designed and made in the Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine recently. So proud to be recognized for interesting design and technique. The article features two necklaces that represent an Old World design. I love the rustic nature of Old World designs with lovely complimentary colors.
I can not tell you how exciting it is to see your designs in print! Wishing you excitement and joy for your “work” whatever that might be for you.
