Well here goes.
My journey into making jewellery seriously started several years ago when i realised i had to listen to the doctors advice.
After lots of making and sculpting using wood and metals my wrists were unable to take any more.
Arthritis was causing me a lot of pain and missed work days.
My answer was to turn to jewellery making, which had always been a occasional hobby.
Example of some of my work.
I love using copper and am hoping to get some silver making lessons this year.
I love using artisan components in all colours ,shapes and sizes.
I have no firm dislikes when it comes to beads and components, although there could always be a first time.
Vintage items are wonderful to work with as are all new beads.
I love most materials and would always have a go with new ones.
My work is very eclectic as are the materials i choose, although some would say i just can not decide on my favourite medium!
This collage of some of my work sums up my travels with jewellery making over the last couple of years.
I have never ventured into the mysteries of seed beading/weaving as i view the wonders of this art too magical for me!!
I love copper work and cutting,torching, hammering makes me feel like i still sculpt(just in miniature)
I find asymmetric work really hard although i do occasionally make pieces.
I am still finding my feet with blogging so your patience is appreciated and any constructive advice graciously received.
Ps trying to pop up side buttons asap.
