Missing the mark...

I don’t always get it right. Sometimes I just don’t love what I’ve created. Sometimes I have to throw in the towel...

Last week I had my first rejection. It was a really challenging set of ears & I just couldn’t hit the mark. To say I was devastated is an understatement, I sat and sobbed as I spoke to my customer. Sometimes you set a bar so high for yourself, that it’s just impossible to reach. I’m not an artist in the traditional sense, I can’t really draw, I really struggle to get my ideas in my head across to people. But trying to get someone else’s vision and put it onto a 3.5” ear is a whole other ball game! It made me realise that I can say no.

If I feel I can’t portray the idea, “No” is the correct answer. Going forward, I will be so much

more cautious about what commissions I take on. I want to make each set of ears to the absolute best of my ability, and I can only do that if I’m c

ompletely honest with my customers. The end game for me is always how my customers feel about my ears, so I wanted to share this set with you. Another set that I struggled with, but my customer loved! They held a special meaning for them & knowing they loved them made me so so happy! That’s what it’s all about!
