Do I have the skills?

Over the year I have been lucky enough to find out about some very wonderful jewellery artist, I have mentioned earlier Iza and Eni but there are a few more I would like to mention. Slowly but surely I am hoping to try all there wonderful tutorials to help increase my skills and techniques.

So the most recent tutorial I have tried is Celtic Coiled Bezel Pendant by Perri Jackson. A wonderful tutorial although I think I still need alot more practise on my wire work skills. This is my creation on the left. There are a few things different then they should be but all in all I am very happy with my creation. I have another of hers to try, beaded caps and will post when done. Be sure to check out her tutorials at ShaktipajDesigns .

The other people I will talk about in the near future is Corra and her wonderful designs and tutorials and lastly is Bobbi some more gorgeous designs and tutorials. I am sure there is more artist's to discover but for now I hope to learn and grow from them.

What a year, what a ride

Well what a wonderful year 2008 was. I discovered chainmaille, wire wrapping, wonderful new beading buddies and exciting forums. A short time ago I posted that I had decided to start selling my jewellery. Since then I have had a friend/beautician show interest in stocking some, a boutique currently considering and two pieces already sold I am sooooooo excited.

I have also just started creating a website, which currently very basic but i will endeavour to work on it this year. I will soon post the link.

With such a great year last year and so many things in the works already I say BRING ON 2009.

I am looking forward to learning, learning, making, learning and now selling.

Thanks for Reading
