Carmi Cimicata is a mixed- media artist from Canada whose journey in the art world has included working with all kinds of materials, but once she found resin, that is when her journey became a trip she now shares on-line through various web outlets. She has a personal weblog called Carmi's Art/Life World
, maintains the Resin Crafts weblog
, and writes for the John Bead Blog
. Rather than taking the direction of selling her finished art and jewelry pieces, Carmi has instead taken a different direction as she teaches others as well as provides information about making art, most especially resin jewelry. She has been able to combine her teaching, web, and resin skills and developed her own unique professional designing path. In this interview, she explains how she did this, and, I think, gives all of us a great deal to think about when it comes to creating a jewelry designing career.
