“what to do with?”

Description from Mommykat Bubbly Chick: at my last show, i saw a few women who live in my neighborhood. They were talking to one another and I overheard one of them comment that my jewelry isn't feminine enough. Ouch.

    It sounds like a little jealousy mixed with some low self esteem on thrir part. Remember that not all women are comfident enough to wear jewery that may stand out bold and make a statement. they just rely on a plain string of pearls. If and when you see these women again,just think of them as a plain string of pearls. greet them kindly and move on with your creative self girl. You’ve got too much to offer the world.

    Don’t worry about them. You can’t please very one. You have your own style and it works for you. Be confident in what you do well and enjoy. It’s not really about others but about what fulfills you. You can’t excell at something you aren’t comfortable with. Have fun and keep on beading your way.

    My darling Chicky, what do they know … no imagination … they don’t realize that not everyone likes cookie-cutter jewelry. If all the big celebrities started sporting your pieces (if only … that’d be so awesome, huh!) they’d probably think they were awesome. Don’t worry WE (your fellow Chicks) know just how lovely and fantabulous your pieces are! :D

    Lorrie,I have to ditto all the remarks that have been made. Do your own thing, it is you that you really and truly have to please. You do fantabulous work and don’t let anybody tell you any different. Keep up the good work.

    Lorrie, To each his own! If everyone in this worldhad the same ideas and tastes, what a boring place this would be! I love your designs! What you like & feel good about is all that matters! Keep ‘em coming!

    I tell you that those ladies were only speaking of THEIR preferences. I have a tendancy to make alot of feminine pieces so I have to make myself create some not so much…..these sell too….everybody has their own likes….if you are selling your pieces than you know what you are doing is giving people choices. FORGET THOSE RUDE WOMEN they should have made their comments out of your ear shot!

    Ditto, ditto, ditto to all the above statements! You just be yourself and true to YOUR art!
    A friend once told me 50% of people will agree with you only 50% of the time. It put things into perspective for me. You can’t please everyone!!!
    It’s just too bad that those ladies thought they needed to insult you into being an artist within their limited vision.
    Stay true to you Bubbly Chick! The Chicks are behind you!!!

    Don’t worry about it too much Lorrie! People will be people and you will never be able to please everybody. Just keep doing the things that you like and you will be fine. Don’t let others put you down!

    Chicky ChaCha says:

    I agree with so many of the Chickies Lorrie. Creativity is something that is inspired within and don’t let anyone take that from you–that is YOUR gift. Could be jealousy, could be just wanting to put someone else lower to make themselves feel good, gossiping, etc. We love you here in the Garden and this is our safe place. :) Your work is wonderful! Kill em with kindness and make them something and give it to them. HEH HEH!

    I might add that their use of the word “feminine” in such a narrow and judgmental sense gives me a bit of a giggle. Half the world’s population is feminine- are all 3+ billion of us supposed to like the same things? To me, those sort of rigid gender identity comments speak of insecurity. God makes all kinds o’ chicks!

    Oh, thanks everyone very much for the support! It was just a little saddening, because I knew thesee women & I will always try to go out of my way to be kind. But I do not think I would want to make jewelry anymore if it was all boring & the same. Chicky Hugs to all!

    Lorrie, never let anyone take away your joy! And that is what creativity is…joy!
    I agree with what everyone else has already said…it’s true, you cannot please everyone, so just please YOU! We love you & your artistry!

    Hey people will be people and if they had the same talent they would be happy .That just the way people is. Just keep rolling out your jewelry and not to let obnoxious people get you down!!

    Atomic Toad says:

    Feminine ENOUGH??? What does that mean, exactly? Everyone’s boat floats differently, and they’re entitled to like or not like whatever. But it is painful to overhear such an inane comment made in such a gossipy manner. Stay true to yourself. Your fans will find you.

    Lorrie, hang in there kid, I agree with the other chickies…do your own thing and those with something other than 3rd class will appreciate it. ;)
