Kriss Eglite tells her story about how to be a pioneer at something you have not done before.
“I think it is not just jewellery making, but whenever you take a leap into something new it is scary. Basically, you jump with your head or for the more levelheaded person feet first into the unknown water – and that takes courage, determination and resilience. At the beginning, it is definitely putting yourself out there, which in turn makes you more vulnerable – because people will react and sometimes the reactions are supportive and other times they are not. I guess at first that is the biggest challenge - to take feedback but keep focusing on your own inner voice as well.”
