My sister in law in the Uk has just taken up jewellery making as a hobby, and has been showing her efforts via Facebook. When I asked her if it was a hobby or was she planning on selling her creations, she had quite a lot done and all bagged up, she replied that she was planning to give some to my husband , her brother, next time he was over to see how they sold in France!!
Now we are artisans here and sell on markets amongst other places , so I can see where her mind was going. I have told her I can't sell jewellery as that isn't what we are inscribed. I have knocked her back mainly as I don't want to mix business and family (apart from working with my husband that is) I have pointed her in the direction of Etsy Uk to set up a boutique. But honestly is it me? Does the fact that we are Artisans d'Art make us fair game for every odd ball family member? and we have plenty of those believe me.
How I hate these dilemmas, this type of situation just makes me squirm. Dos anyone else find this type of situation difficult or am I just too diplomatic?
