My whole life I have had what I like to think of as an entrepreneur spirit. My first enterprise was the babysitting business which I did from the age of 11 to 17. I later moved on to making and selling hemp jewelry. In college I continued to sell the jewelry, but added recording demo albums for poor local bands to my list of side work. I have had to quit the hemp thing because of joint pain, but have added mobile DJing, photography, and graphice design to the list a several years back.
I have been trying for the last year and a half to support myself by working for myself, but I have hit a dead end. I have not given up, but I am not making it enough to support myself and my soon to be 12 year old son. I am faced with the choice that lots of us unfortunately are, which is to have to find so crap job to pay the bills and budget all my free time into art and my side projects. I am not going to let it defeat me, but I am a little pissed about having to go back to that.
Anyway, the reason for the cameo REmix is because recently I bid on some wholesale jewelry making supplies on ebay. I wanted to design some jewelry for myself because I collect cameos. I bid on items from the US, UK, and China. I used the extra to design more jewelry to sell for exrat income. This is my little poster I designed. I took the pricing and info off because I am not trying to sell it here on HR. I just wanted to tell my little story and dream of being my own boss. Also because designing the jewelry was like doing a remix. Taking different pieces and putting them together.
