Instagram Stories: Access to the Latest adaptive reuse Tin Jewelry Creations
"If you've followed me here or IG or FB for any length of time, you probably know that I make new jewelry every day. What you may not know is that I'm also a proponent that everyone make something every day. It doesn't matter what it is--a little collage, a short poem, a journal entry, some fresh pasta for dinner, a new riff on your guitar. Whatever your thing is, do it on a daily basis. Not only is it the best way to get better at something, it's a form of meditative practice. Also, it's just damn good for your brain. What's not good for your brain (at least not my brain) is all the other stuff that goes along with the business of making things. Don't get me wrong, I can do it, but that's not the sweet spot for me. What I love is to create a cool piece of jewelry and then release it to the world to see it find a home with someone who loves wearing it.
Why Instagram Stories?
To that end, I'm realizing that Instagram Stories might be a way to shorten that me-to-you process. It occurred to me to utilize the feature to post the pieces I make each day to give my followers not only first access, but at collector prices. True, my pieces are pretty affordable, so we're not talking piles of cash, but it's definitely enough to pay for that coffee and breakfast taco you picked up on your way to work today.
