I know you're busy.
I see your posts!
I really do look and read them.
I'm busy too.
Growing children, work, aging parents, illness, duties, obligations, time management!
That's why when it comes to commissions I don't take many.
My life is the same.
Even when it's people I know, and they know what my life is like from the inside and they say 'no rush, no worries, whenever you can get to it is fine' that's not me.
I live by the adage of why put off for tomorrow what you can do today.
Yes I am a type A, fire, pita constitution.
I put pressure on myself.
Yet when a friend recommended her friend it felt right to tatk this commission.
We met, I showed her stones to choose from, she told me what she likes and hopes for.
She picked the stones from the tray.
I reassured her, did a quick sketch......except of the ring.
I don't sketch my rings, I let them flow in a very organic way.
But I heard what she liked!
These are her pieces, done in my style.
She trusted me.
I was excited to do the work.
Best of all, truly the best part of this commission is that the client has become a friend.
Does life get better than that?
I don't think so..
Take the time to smell the roses.
Take the time to welcome in a new friend.
Let your tribe of powerful people grow.
That is the richness of life.
Thank you Barry for trusting my vision, for being a powerful woman, for joining my tribe!
