I get asked a lot whether I wear my own beads or jewelry. I don’t, really. I much prefer to collect and wear things that other people have made.
I know, I know… it’s great advertising to wear your own work. I hear that many people even sell things right off of their bodies when they are out and about!
But for me, I just get so much more joy out of expressing my individuality through my very lovingly curated jewelry collection – purchased from many wonderful artists over the years.
I’ve thought about this at length, and the best way I can explain it is as follows: think of someone who plays/sings music. If they kicked back in a chair to listen to some tunes, would they choose their own music, or someone else’s?
If you were going to eat a delicious meal, would you want to eat your own cooking, or order something special in a restaurant you haven’t tried before?
I could go on, but I won’t.
