If you click here, you'll be able to read my article on the Collective Creatives blog about how I came to create jewelry for a living.
When I looked at my given topic this month and saw it labeled as, “The Journey”, I thought of several ways the article could go. I thought, WHICH journey? The journey I take each day when I sit to design? The journey that it takes to find my creative self in the midst of a chaotic day? Or the journey I took to get to this point in my life, where I make pretty things for a living?
I thought it might be interesting to try the latter — how I ended up where I am now, where I have the absolute joy of actually making a living making jewelry. It’s a strange, convoluted journey, with lots of twists, turns, and almosts, and it will tell you a little more about me, and in the end, why my jewelry is so eclectic, and doesn’t adhere to one given style.
