Jewelry-Making 101

Step 1.
Drop a bunch of beads on the floor. If you don’t drop at least one thing on the floor, it won’t be a very productive day.

Step 2.
Draft a design by laying materials out on your desk. Take it apart because it’s terrible. Draft another design. Take it apart because it’s terrible. Draft another design. Approve it and start making it. Get halfway through then take it apart because it’s terrible.

Step 3.
When piece is complete, sit back and admire it for at least one hour. Sigh with satisfaction.

Step 4.
Go to the craft store to replenish your stock of supplies. Write a list so you don’t go over your budget. Discover a sale. Throw out your list. Buy twice as much as you planned.

Step 5.
Repeat steps 1-4 until you’ve made enough pieces to open a shop on Etsy. Harass your friends to buy your stuff and leave 5-star reviews.

Step 6.
Sit back and admire your shop several times a day. Check stats every hour.

Step 7.
Repeat steps 1-6 until you find a new creative interest.

And that’s how you do it! Wasn’t that easy?
