We all have those moments where we go "What the heck was I thinking?" Right?
Upon reviewing all of my jewelry creations, I have had several of those moments. I know that my harshest critic has always been myself and I have taken some time to reflect upon the things I have been making. I have sold/traded 9 items at this point in my store since July which for me I think is awesome. I was super proud of those items. But I've been looking at the things that have been listed since August (especially my earrings) and wondering why I even posted them on Etsy! I don't like them any more. And I feel like if I don't like then I can't sell them. Am I crazy?
So, I've deactivated several of my listings. I'm going to revamp some pieces and relist them. My creative design juices are flowing again after having designer's block (instead of writer's block, haha). I can't wait to show them to everyone. Meanwhile, in the last 2 days I have made nearly 7 new pairs of earrings and they are totally amazing. My plan is to photograph them tomorrow so I can list them tomorrow night.
Reflections are tough, but it's going to make me a better jewelry designer!
