I am continually delighted and surprised by what my students create.
Today I taught a private lesson with my student, Sam. She had the blue roses and the crystals. We found the blue cathedral crystals, grey pearls and fairy pendant in my stock of supplies to complete this stunning necklace and earring set. She had something different in mind when she envisioned what she would do with the roses. She was happy with the results even though it wasn’t what she had thought she was going to make. Collaborating on this set together was a really pleasurable experience.
I am finding that I get more excited when I help others create jewelry than I do when I am making it on my own. It may be because I am a very social personality type. It may be because I like teaching people. It may be because I just love the results. It may be all those reasons and more. But, it doesn’t really matter why. It’s just so cool that I have the opportunity to teach and share my love of jewelry making. I am very grateful.
