This past weekend I had a booth at the West Michigan Bead Expo, the show that my friend Robin Mamo and I organize. It was the first time I’ve had a chance to show off my hollows, my Lake Superior stone jewelry and the stone dot beads I’ve told you about in past posts. I was really tickled with the response I received!
It is so rewarding to find out that the new ideas popping around in your head are actually good. It’s one thing to show a new technique to your friends and family… they almost always love what you create! But to have people you don’t know tell you they love your work is such a validating experience. That’s what happened on Saturday. The beads I’ve been making recently went over well. They liked me… they really liked me!!
It doesn’t get much better than that… so I think I’ll keep wandering down this new path I’ve found. Want to come with me?
