Well, it was actually Patrik’s idea to write this post, he even had to persuade me – a little bit.
Many of you know that I’ve been rather busy for the last few months. Being creative and very much enjoying what I did, naturally.
What had started as sort of a playful attempt, suddenly became a more serious thing. My bracelets and necklaces were unexpectedly more and more popular amongst our friends and families. It didn’t take long and their friends and families also wanted to own a piece. Orders started to come in, with special color requests…..
It was such a big surprise for me and I was overwhelmed, about their interest in my jewellery. Not to mention my slowly growing success!
These days, my creations are displayed in a fashion boutique, a nearby tattoo studio and “our” Harley dealer! Isn’t that awesome?
Someone even suggested that I should participate in an exhibition, which will take place in December….It’s called “Koffermarkt” here, and apparently known as “trunk show” in the USA (that’s what Google says).
Well, that was a bit of a worrying idea and I needed to be pushed a little, at least to seriously think about it. I mean, was I good enough? Was I ready for this next (big) step?
But on the other hand, what could I loose? The exhibition is not a big one and only one day. Not even the costs are high.
And you know what? As fate would have it, my parents had an antique suitcase on their loft. An absolutely beautiful piece, in beige leather which looks like new! I guess that was me, running out of excuses, right?!
Anyway, meanwhile I signed up and bought some deco stuff in order to present my bracelets and necklaces in a suitable environment.
I reckon, the following weeks won’t be boring, as I’ll have enough to do with producing and building up a small stock.
And I must admit, since I decided to participate, I do look forward to this event. Who knows what the future has in store for me?
A few impressions, voilà!
