I didn't plan on it it just sort of happened. I was working a show or flea market each week for about 50 shows a year. It was a tough schedule and as time went on it was really wearing me down. I loved making jewelry and did not want to give it up and then all of a sudden people wanted to learn my wire sculpting method and it just went from there.
When you go from artist to teacher it is different and you do feel like you are giving part of you away but there are so many other benefits to make up for it.
#1. The financial rewards can be very good during good economy or bad.
#2. The people you teach and help turn there art to a small business and it is a blessing more precious then money.
#3. If you stick in there as you go you are moving forward so you never really have the chance to give it all away.
#4. I think before you teach you need some wire time where you make all the mistakes in the world. Then you can teach others how not to make the mistakes you made and it all get's better for everyone. It is a beautiful art and it really needs to be recognized as that much more.
