From Mannheim, Germany to New York City, USA
With the founding of Evolving You Art Design in 2014, I have fulfilled my dream of creating something meaningful and valuable – for others, for myself. Since I’m working to translate personal milestones and stories of my customers into silver treasures, my life feels so much more valuable and even more precious than before.
While I feel the passion and the happiness I need to be the best I can, I also ask myself ‘Where do I want to go from here?’. ‘Is there a way, to multiply the value I create with one piece for one customer at the time?’, ‘How can I surpass the boundaries of my business and life?’
Coming from an entirely different professional background, I often lack the confidence to go out there and present myself as a designer, as a brand. Although I bring a lot of experience from other paths I’ve walked before my new career, I’m hesitant to take the next step. I feel how my mindset that I’m ‘just’ a one-woman-show and a single mom keeps me playing small. How could I ever compare myself with the famous designers and big brands!
Though, to create my own collection which is sold worldwide is one of my biggest dreams. Being connected, sending energy through real treasures would be awesome! The ‘how’ is still very foggy and at the moment, I don’t know where to start and to whom I can turn to for professional advice in the jewelry industry.
Everything I do as a jewelry designer grows from the interaction with people, with my customers, friends and peers. The professional collaboration is very limited though and I would love to work more with like minded experts to grow, work and walk confidently in my ‘designer shoes’.
Lately, I’ve been inspired by Tracy and Robin from the Flourish & Thrive Academy in New York with their great video tutorials, blog entries and educational writings. With the chance opening for a spot in their Laying the Foundation course I see the fantastic opportunity to get the knowledge and insights I need to establish my brand in a sustainable way and to grow successfully beyond any border! I see the blessing in the online course because I could even attend from Germany. For this, I’m applying for the scholarship to lay the foundation of working internationally from now on.
