Benelux network has grown significantly. Into my role as a teacher within the EU network if I have welcomed a lot of women – and some men - in my studio for certified training level 1, level 2 and New Mokume-Gane. Additionally followed some fellow instructors under my guidance supplement programs, including UV Resin, Gold and
These colleagues were all triggered at any time, either through the internet, a trade fair, etc. Because, after all, how much fun it is to design your own jewelry? Or to create on commission a piece of jewelry for your customers? And possibly you’ll manage to provide enough successful workshops, so that good mouth - to - mouth publicity takes care of a large customer base.
Each ACS instructor starts with this target.
Some have a driving entrepreneurial spirit and climb quickly and successfully. Yet others work in stages to their success. And then there's a group of colleagues who are affected by personal circumstances, phases of life that doesn’t allow them to build their carefully considered choice. At least, not immediately since obtaining the certificates.
One of these ladies is Sylvia Groot. 3 years ago she attended the certified training. This was followed by several turbulent years. And now she’s about to get started with Metal Clay again. Before that, she again invoked my help and today she has taken a "refresher course", in which I have answered all her questions and explained various techniques. Her specific request was to re-create a pendant with a natural stone and it certainly succeeded!
Dear Sylvia, I want to thank you for the wonderful day and I hope this has been sufficient to process your creative mind, in your own way, into beautiful jewelry. Every success for the future!
