"So, do you still make jewelry?"
and how offputting it is to so many people.
I get asked that as well but it doesn't bother me. (most of the time). For starters, I can go a month without making anything due to this crazy busy lovely life I lead so I suppose its a valid question.
And also, it's a perfect opportunity to say:
"Why YES, I do! Let me show you some recent pieces I've made.."
See what I did there! LOL
I think we always have a choice in how we accept the words of others. I'm not suggesting it's always easy to swallow, and the Lord knows I am not perfect at it, but I am getting better. If we practice not assigning ill intent, if we cultivate that thoughtfulness, we nurture it into a habit. And how much more beautiful is life when we can go about it with positivity rather than negativity. Negativity is SO draining and probably pretty toxic to our bodies.
I am preparing for an upcoming show and have a few new pieces that I hope to develop into a line with different variations. These will be a more casual and 'easy to wear' line than some of my work has been thus far. Here are a few starter pieces:
|Sterling silver and carnelian by DoxalloStudio|
|Sterling silver and turquoise by Doxallo Studio|
Anyone else gearing up for a summer show? If so, are you enjoying the process or stressing over how much you have to do yet?
