Existence For The Jewelry Designer Is Befuddling

Existence for the jewelry designer is befuddling.

Making jewelry is such a happy endeavor.  But is the designer always happy?   It is so scary, risky, fraught with anxiety, difficult to decide, sometimes impossible to fully visualize.    Yes, you answer to yourself and your own sense of aesthetics and construction.   But yet, you make things for other people to wear, perhaps to buy, perhaps to display, perhaps to comment and evaluate and criticize and tear to shreds.    Or ‘like’ it on some level.

Befuddling.   Yes, indeed….
