Why can't a person like to make items using *all* those methods?
I've found that even people who I've considered friends see nothing wrong with saying things such as "I hate that beaded sh*t" straight to my face. I've been told that PMC artists have "brought down the quality of silver jewelry". And, my favorite was when I was told that making PMC jewelry "doesn't require any skill".
What have you experienced as a jewelry designer? Or, if you are a person who buys handmade jewelry, do you have strong feelings about certain types of jewelry and why?
