Do you feel passionately about making jewelry? Are you in love with this amazing field? And does it show when you talk about your work?
I have the good fortune of talking with jewelry makers all over the world on a regular basis, and it’s always inspiring to hear how fired up so many of you are about making jewelry!
That passion is not only essential for doing inspired work, but it’s also an important tool.
The presence or absence of that passion can be a huge indicator for all kinds of things.
For example, if you don’t feel energized about working on a piece that day, you might not be as focused as you need to be.
Or if you’re dreading an upcoming show or other selling event, it may mean your heart isn’t in it. And if you’re heart isn’t in it, your head won’t likely be, either.
When you feel that energy and excitement for making and selling your beautiful handmade jewelry, that’s a sign that you’re making the right things!
Use your love of your art to drive all the things you do.
When that passion and your creative talents are in alignment, you can achieve anything you want.
If you haven’t felt the love for making jewelry in a while, here’s a tip: Think back to the very first piece you made. Imagine yourself right back in that moment – think about where you were, what you were doing, what the materials felt like and more.
That moment was gift. Give that gift back to yourself right now.
