Q&A with BeadedJewelry

Nicole H asked:
This is extremely beautiful ! Good work, I am just setting up my studio now, I hope my jewelry will look at least 1/2 as beautiful as yours. I am a nurse with very little time, and studying for my master in psychotherapy. I am close to 50, I should be thinking of retirement, but here I am going back to school when my love is making jewelry. Go figure. Can you make a living out of this? Life would be so much easier an pleasing. Anyways I just wanted to tell you that I love what you do. You are a true artist. Congrats! Nicole ( my email is nicky_h_@hotmail.com)

Hi Nicole -- what a love comment! Thank you so much for taking the time to write it out. :) As far as making a living at this, I know some people do (although not I for various reasons). Part of that is how much money you need per month, factoring in things like insurance, taxes, etc. But yes, I made a decent amount when I was actively selling. Now I do more teaching. :) Best wishes on your studio and going back to school!!!!!!!
