How good are you at what you do?
It would be pretty miraculous if you could make a living selling jewelry like the earrings pictured above. Do you make something that wows your audience? Famous artists and designers all have a certain appeal (or family name) and have mastered thier skills. They set themselves apart from the DIY crowd by being fantastic at thier jobs.
Master your craft, get really good at what you love to do and give your everything to it. I have made a lot of really bad books in my time, wobbly, floppy, and just plain idiotic designs. But bookbinding is something I love. It is something I really wanted to be good at and so I kept at it. Over time my books got stronger, my ideas got better and I started making things that people were excited to buy.
Let your love for your craft consume you and it will show in your finished products. To quote a wise etsy seller Spazspun
"Learn your craft. Learn it to the point where you can let your instincts take over. Learn all the rules and then break them with abandon! Believe in yourself and your uniqueness."
So beautifully put that it had to be repeated
