Thoughts on the First Sale

When you work in a creative field, especially something so personal as making jewellery, every piece has a part of your heart in it, some more so than others.

Friends and family keep saying "you should sell your jewellery", however to put your creation out into the public domain is sometimes like standing naked in the street. Will someone like it, will everyone hate it, are your friends and family wrong and only being kind?

To have someone select your piece from all the other beautiful jewellery made by many talented designers is a heady experience!

First there is the excitement of the actual sale, and then there is the warm feeling of connection to the buyer. You wonder what they are like and where they live and what it was that made them decide that your piece whispered to them and to make it part of their life.

And so my very first sale - Fly by Night is off to France!
Thank you so much Isabelle, I hope my creation from my hands and heart gives you ongoing delight.

Fly by Night

A polymer clay focal with a little owl, agate rounds, wrapped wire spacers, czech glass beads, vintaj chain.

Forever Young

Since it is my grand daughters birthday, I have made her a bit of 'baby-bling' in the form of a cute little bracelet.
A little 'sweet bird of youth' charm, swarovski crystal and vintaj chain.
Happy Birthday Abby!
