This month, two boutiques I sell my jewelry in are closing, which sucks, but that is the risk of having a b&m business. I'm just happy I was able to be a part of them. Time to move on!
Recently I was approached with an opportunity to sell at a gallery and I'm jumping on it. This is different for me and it's pushing me to step outside of my comfort zone a little in my work but I need to challenge and push myself if I want to see any results.
There is not much time as the deadline to submit everything for opening day is fast approaching. I use to work really well under deadlines in the corporate world but now I'm sweating.
One of the challenges I'm facing is I don't have much money to stock up on supplies so I'm working with what I have. It's almost like being in the "Chopped" kitchen but for jewelry.
You can only use these materials, make something fabulous!
I came up with nine items that are ready for shipping and I will keep my fingers crossed. This is a real test in my confidence because there is a small voice in my head saying "Who are you kidding??" Since this is a gallery and not a regular clothing boutique, I am putting this extra pressure on myself.
I can't wait to share more about this once it's up and running but like a lot of people, I don't want to spill the beans too early because I still believe in jinxing things.
