flashback to Jess LC circa 2001
August 10th, 2010     |    Business AdviceLife

Hi guys! I just want to pop in and say that Susie and I are still busy chipping away at the orders from last weekend – the response was so much bigger than expected and we are filling orders as quickly as possible.

In the meantime, my longtime friend, Krista, sent me some photos of “vintage” Jess LC jewelry from high school. Though not quite as ugly as my first piece of jewelry, these bracelets are still testaments to how much one can improve given nine years of moving forward and trying new things. Perfection is impossible, but even excellence takes time to achieve.

So please take this as a reminder that you will improve from wherever you are now, so far beyond your own expectations that you will surprise yourself. I know my 17 year-old self would not have been able to dream up anything I’ve done in the past three years. — And I hope that what I’m doing in three years is beyond any expectation I could have at this point in time.

  • As someone who is trying to get a small business of the ground I love reading your blog. This post is so encouraging – thank you for all that you share with us

  • My dear, these pieces are sweet. Nothing to be embarrassed about or anything of that sort. They are from a very youthful time – as well as a time when this sort of jewelry style was “in”. Your jewelry has grown as you have, and what you are saying about three years down the line… I am totally excited to see what amazing things you are making then, because your pieces now are stunning!!!

  • Shimmer

    thankyou so much for posting this!

    it’s great seeing that (eep! no offense!) you weren’t always as awesome as you are now 🙂

    I mean they’re nice enough, but definitely just average, whereas your stuff now is absolutely beautiful!

    It’s great to see how far you can come with time and dedication 🙂

  • It is so fun to see the progress that is made over time – thanks for sharing this encouraging look at your journey. 🙂

  • Very inspiring. It is wonderful to see how you have developed as an artist over time.
