In completing an application to join an on-line group of jewelry artists, I was asked what does the word “artisan” mean to me.
“When I see the word "artisan" I think original, elite individuals who approach their craft from an artistic point of view. A person who can express art in such a way that their audience can only say "WOW"!”
I was honest in my own definition of the word but wondered if I fall into this category. Then I proceeded to look over my designs, through pictures and such and it dawned on me in looking at my jewelry that I am all over the place in terms of design. Usually each designer/ creator has his or her own style. Their voice can be heard when you see their creations. Honestly, I don’t have my own distinct voice. I dibble and dabble in some of everything and its time for my individual voice to be heard.
So, I’m going to be doing a bit of research on myself and see what I come up with, of course, I will keep you updated on my discoveries.
This is going to be so much fun because after that I really have to figure out how to work this camera that really has too many features for me but it was a gift so that I could take professional pictures of my jewelry. And I’m half way there with that…
