A common fear amongst jewelry designers and makers is the fear of rejection!
Can you relate?
Your art and design is a very personal thing and it’s easy to take “no” personally because you feel it in the depths of your soul.
There is a great saying that I just love: “Life’s Rejection is God’s Protection”
Now whether you are religious or not, the principle holds true: rejection is a tool that we can use to not only protect ourselves but to learn from!
As a young designer myself, I was terrified to reach out to stores and clients at the time for fear that they might say ‘NO!' But I quickly realized that if I didn’t ask for the sale, I wasn’t going to get it.
So I put myself out there and got a lot of NO’s at first, but eventually, the NO’s turned into YES!
Instead of wallowing in my sorrows, I did whatever I could to learn from the NO’s and improve as a designer.
