flattery will get you everywhere
when i first put my jewelry on the interweb, i was unsure how it would be received. sure, family and friends loved it and encouraged me to get out there, but it was still scary to ask total strangers if they liked my work.
just the act of putting myself out there has made me more confident about my jewelry, but compliments from strangers never hurt! the other day someone said to me that they like my jewelry because they rarely wear any jewelry. although it may not sound like a compliment to others, i thought it was a great because i strive to create everyday, not-too-fussy pieces. so i was really flattered!
then today, my upcycled red and aqua jewelry storage board was featured in the top picks on cosa verde‘s website! so cool. thanks everybody.
