|16" byzantine sterling silver chain|
I may have never been introduced to London until high school when it might not have had the impact it had on me as a little girl, if it weren't for this unexpected birthday gift.
I've been hooked on adventure ever since. So I'm unpacking some jewelry making supplies this morning and a little slip of paper falls out. It's one of those cutesy things store owners do to be memorable so you will want to go back there.
So what should be on the paper but this quote from Jack London: "You can't wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club." Hello, I've been doing this all my life. Following a creative career path, I have been a journalist, editor, magazine owner, travel writer, website developer, gallery owner, and now I'm into handcrafting jewelry. The creative lifestyle may not always be a lucrative one, but by jeepers, you are going to have fun, learn a lot and meet interesting people.
I just completed a byzantine sterling silver neck chain. A friend of mine said I must have a lot of patience, "no, that's not me, I have no patience."
Then she replied, "Determination."
"Yes, that's it, determination."
