Hello, everyone. I've taken last year off to rethink a few things. Then, life started happening. I had a pretty bad year and I'm still trying to get over it.
I dabbled a little with this and that in jewelry making. I've come to the conclusion that I really like making chain maille jewelry. It is so relaxing to sit down and watch something beautiful come together. I also played with copper wire. I like how it looks with stones and other stuff I throw at it.
I'll be getting some pictures of items I'm making for my next show. I hope to have my next show in March or April. It should be really interesting. I'm working on having an 'economic crisis' show to make my jewelry more affordable during these trying economic times. I've got a few ideas down solid. I've got a few more to think of. I'm trying out a few 'guy' items to see if they work.
Oh! I've got a commission for a man's necklace to go with an earring I made. I'll have pics of this soon as I'm nearly finished with it.
I've also talked to a few people who make jewelry, too. I need to get to know them a little better because they have interesting techniques.
I'll be back with you later.
Take care. Happy jewelry making!
