Yesterday I wrote about some criticism that I received from a fellow jewelry maker about writing jewelry tutorials and giving away "trade secrets".
I want to thank everyone for the wonderful support I received from you. Wow. You guys rock!
Why do I write tutorials? I guess I like to share. Sometimes it's taken a long time to figure out how to do a certain technique and I've learned it through trial and error. I'm proud when I finally master it, and I want to share. Perhaps in doing so, people won't have to make the same mistakes I made.
AND it give me a great feeling when someone finds my work inspiring and my tutorials useful.
So I want to share with you an e-mail I got a couple of days ago. Jozie took the time to write this wonderful message to me, which made my day. THIS is the reason I write tutorials.
I got a follow-up message from her that she just listed her first pair of wire earrings. Please go check them out at her shop, Jewelry by Jozie.
