Today I am revisiting a necklace that in my opinion started my journey into art licensing.
It was a year and a half ago, and I was at the first Creative Connection Event. I decided to be a vendor after my sister suggested it to me. ( I am forever grateful for her advice, inspiration and support!)
It was a 5 day event and I had so much help from my friends and family!
I remember meeting Angela… She was super sweet. She bought this necklace from me. ( Sorry, the photo quality is poor). She came back the second day and bought another one!
I was so honored. I received an email a week and a half later titled “I Love Your Jewelry!” it turns out she is in product development for Silvestri, a division of Demdaco. She asked if I was interested in licensing my work! She wasn’t sure at that point how it would all work, but she believed in my art.
It is such a great feeling to be supported in that way.
I am so thankful to work with two AMAZING licensing companies. Without Angela (and Demdaco/Silvestri) seeing something in my work and taking a chance on me, I would not be where I am today. I am so very grateful!
So you see, I believe It all started eith this necklace!
(We were very sad to hear that there will not be a Creative Connection 2012… But there is no time to be sad!!! My friend Linda has created an amazing retreat based around the Junk Bonanza) called Live, Love, Junk… I am honored to teach a class with her during the retreat!
