The story of Pamela Bellesen’s wholesale jewelry line and metalworking studio called Wide Mouth Frog Designs can be an inspiration for other makers and artisans. Metal is her passion, but she also had to take care of the business side of things.
Ms Bellesen realized that being a savvy business person was as important as being a creator. A wholesale trade show and meeting with a sales rep was what it took for things to really change for her business. What I learned from her is how important it is to wear both the artist hat and the business hat.
