Eyes on the Prize :: Britta Ambauen

Sunday, August 18, 2013

Given that the prizes here at the BSP are shipped directly from our wonderful contributors, we are often missing the complete picture of sunshine. In an effort to keep our “Eyes on the Prize” we want to feature our amazing readers with their fantastic prizes! If you are a previous winner, please feel free to email krista(at)thebrightsideproject(dot)com with a photo and you can see yourself in lights! And let’s not forget: you’re all winners!

from reader Kate B:

I was chosen as the lucky winner of the Britta Ambauen Wrap Bangle back in March and I was thrilled. Not only is the jewelry just to my taste (silver, minimal), but Britta herself contacted me to tell me that she had chosen my answer because she too had taken a risk in leaving a position in advertising to pursue her dream of being a jewelry designer. Since I was considering leaving my own job to become a freelance graphic designer, hearing her story really gave me a lot of confidence. Since then we’ve emailed back and forth a few times and I’ve found her to be a wealth of wisdom and courage.

I love wearing the wrap bangle because it goes with so much and I love the story of it. I wore it the day I handed in my resignation, to remind me that other people who felt unfulfilled had also taken a leap and were living their dreams. I’ve worn it to client meetings as a freelance designer to give me that extra confidence, plus knowing it looks fabulous and artistic. I’ve worn it to two weddings because it just plain is beautiful!

I love participating in the Bright Side Project and getting a chance to answer provoking questions and hear about the paths of so many brave designers. I feel lucky every time I am chosen for some reason and am grateful for this interesting and passionate community with such great stories to tell. Thanks to those who run the giveaways and to the artists and business owners who donate the prizes!
