Today, I thought it will like just another day of errands, bank, photo shoot for Wired Charms, chores, and updates on my other design stuff. I end up making it official for Wired Charms.
Since my mom is the officer of the local Tourism here, she had a meeting with DTI (Department of Trade & Industry) today, and since my bank is in the same building, I tagged along. Actually it is a nice way to promote Wired Charms too. Just stepping inside the office, I said why don’t make Wired Charms official already, since I am here. Very mixed emotions of excitement and skepticism.
The officers there notice my necklace that I was wearing. Of course, I am flattered and all, she even suggested me joining the trade fair next month already. I was in awe at first, being the talkative me, I replied that I was selling it online. I said my jewelries are not mass produce, it is one of a kind. I think she even likes the idea. That is a nice thought, really? Who would not like that? People appreciating your art and your creativity. Time will tell as they always say.
Then I saw a copy of the Directory of the Local Manufacturers of Rizal. I actually like how it looks, and how lively it is, unlike those other government documents I have seen before. Actually, I do really want a copy of it for reference, I am searching for local manufactures that I can collaborate or can make beads for me. To actually help and promote our local manufacturers too. I found really interesting and possible partners. For sure, I will blog about it.
It made me think…Can a hand-made beaded jewelry designer be listed there? without losing the passion and the love of creating. How great would that be? Nice motivational thought. I think in any fields of design that I do (jewelry, interior, graphics, events, & layout), I am more keen of expressing my art and passion for it. Thus the reason, it is not surprise for me if there are times it takes me so long to finish a design and I don’t mind how many revisions it would as long as it goes with my vision. It would be a surprise for me if I finish it so fast. Thank God for creative juices, keep it coming!!!
I think I really do enjoy making beaded jewelry or a hobby for me rather than think about it is a business. I am officially selling my art, of course! I am proud that someone is wearing what I created. It is just like me in interior design, when my client is happy on how my vision fits their lifestyle perfectly. I think that is the number one reason I am a designer by passion now. I like making people happy with what I do or create.
So far, I am bit surprise that I have been getting traffic into the site and the responses I get. I am ecstatic. Love the encouragement my friends!!! Thanks for the love and support. I got inspired with the other bloggers (my new found friends) on how honest, creative, amusing and entertaining their site is.
This time around I would rather take small steps, than exhaust myself on something, and end up with nothing. Keeping in mind, I would love to see the growth in my art, with Wired Charms, and as a designer by passion. Next step, is opening a shop in etsy and of course! keeping this site well updated.
