Jeweler, Precious Stone / Metal Worker Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Jeweler, Precious Stone / Metal Worker in Hanover:
"For Love, Not Money."
If you wish to have fulfillment and appreciation for your work, go into being an owner/operator of your work. This can be done either as a designer/contractor, or store owner. Be in contact with the people who will be wearing what you make if possible - they are the ones who will appreciate your work the most. Working for someone else can be rewarding if they truly appreciate what you do and show it well. Often you will wind up in a back room with no contact with the outside world or ever hear about it when "ya done good", only when "ya F#@*ed up", even when you follow the directions given. All in all, I still love what I do and can't imagine doing too many other things.
