One of my very favorite things about participating as an artist at festivals and shows has got to be the people I meet and the connections I make. It gives me such joy to have someone walk into my jewelry booth wearing a piece of my jewelry that they purchased at a previous show! It lets me know that what I do and how I choose to spend my time means something to someone - such a simple thing as handmade jewelry gives others happiness and makes their journey on this earth more pleasant.
At a show I did recently I had the extreme pleasure of watching a young couple pick out a gift for his mother for Mother's Day - this was two months before Mother's Day. I would have loved to have video taped their search for exactly the right gift of handmade jewelry for this most important woman. When they finally settled on a dainty sterling silver necklace with a heart stamped on it, they were so happy and completely satisfied that they had found the perfect gift.
How lucky am I? I get to be a part of all sorts of wonderful and warm interactions among people - it's just doesn't get any better than that!
