SAYING GOODBYE TO YOUR PIECE
(re-posted from earlier this year)
I remember one of the first times I had to say Good-Bye to my piece, and it hit me hard. I had one of my pieces accepted as a Semi-Finalist entry for Swarovski’s Be Naturally Inspired Design Contest 2008.
The week I had to ship my piece to Swarovski — a piece I had worked on over 100 hours to make, that from concept to fruition has been many, many months, and a lot of trial and error. And they were going to keep it. I would not see it again.
I have to tell you, I got a little separation anxiety. Which made me think that this raises a good discussion question.
How do you say Good-Bye to your pieces?
I’ve sold a lot of pieces. Each one is special. I always give a name to each piece. Each piece has its own story. It’s own inspiration. And all of a sudden, its gone. Someone else has it.
So how do you say Good-Bye to your pieces?
Please share your thoughts.
