I have actually been trying to write this post for about a week. I finally choose this gorgeous pendant of Jeannie's to work with for this months Echo Creative Club.
I really love working with Jeannie's creations. They challenge me each time but I find a love and inspirational spark in each and every piece. Here are some of her newest fun creations I so wish I could get my hands on.
Honestly this has been one heck of a year so far and we are only in March. January was so full of ups and new experiences I had to struggle just to keep up. February was full of challenges that I was just short of giving up on but with the amazing support of my friends I have pushed through and thought I had come out on he other side but then I ended up with yet another round of infections that literally had me in bed for the end of February and beginning of March. I did so much whining I even got sick of myself. So I will not be continuing with the whining for all of you. LOL
So what had me struggling to get this posted? So many things have been going through my mind. Maybe it is age or maybe some self doubt creeping in but I was looking at my creations with an extremely critical eye. Am I stuck in a rut or am I looking at my signature style? I love working with my seeds and how they fall together in so many beaded chains. I love working with artisan beads and making pendants to match the beaded chains but is the combination boring?
|What do you think? Too predicable?|
Do I want to really get serious about selling my work or do I want to keep it a hobby? If I sell how do I part with the pieces that I create if I truly love them? If I serious about selling how do I price my pieces with the artisianship in mind but still get sales. Who do I market to?
See so much is running through my head and frankly this is the best of the 6 posts I have tried to write with all this in mind. LOL
I hope this finds you all well and I do have things to celebrate with you all when the time comes.
Hugs and Blessings
