i've done it. i gave into 'production jewelry'. at school we have a jewelry co-op and they always do a christmas sale. call it peer pressure, or my sudden love for fused (welded) silver wire, whatever the reason.... i gave in. i did it. i produced jewelry.
....and did fairly well. meaning i sold most of what i produced. that gives me a great feeling of satisfaction, but at the same time i can't help but feel like i whored my self to the masses.
