Ask And Be Prepared To Receive Your Dreams: Heather Montgomery's jewelry

Dream goal status: Jewelry in a retail space . . .  CHECK!

While supporting my husband with his own dream at his first art exhibition and sale this past Saturday at Haus Fortuna, and exclusive retail shop in Petaluma, California,  I remembered the number 1 rule of a jewelry artist:

Always wear your jewelry designs.

I chose a recent fairly complex design piece to wear Saturday.

It paid off big-time.

While speaking to the store manager, Jodi, I casually mentioned that I did jewelry design while ogling all their gorgeous baubles with Italian Murano Glass beads.

Later in the afternoon, she asked if I made the necklace I was wearing.

Once I said yes, she made sure I spoke with Karla, Haus Fortuna’s lovely owner, to get the low down on my jewelry.

Little did I know they had been looking for jewelry designers for a while.

And, they wished a jewelry designer would actually follow up.



And I almost didn’t say a word.

I always joke that half of getting business is to answer to phone.

Now I will have to say the other half is to ask.

Will I be spending the majority of my weekend fixing my inventory sheet, and tying tiny strings to hang tags for my necklaces and earrings?

You betcha.

And I’ll be loving every minute of it.
