After Christmas spurred on by my wonderful husband, I took the plunge to try my hand properly at jewellery making. I enjoyed a monthly jewellery workshop at Kristina’s last year (who are now online by the way!) and have most definitely caught the bug!
I’m still very much a novice but have to say I’m having a great time (which is what it’s all about) and find it very relaxing. I’ve had some lovely comments from friends who have spotted me wearing my makes and online and I have to tell you, it’s great for the self-esteem!
This necklace was my piece for the weekend. Sometimes I make bits and pieces then take it all apart, just for practice, however, this one I’m really pleased with so will bling up my school run on Monday with this.
I’ve also been working with wire loops and jump rings and my favourite blue beads at the mo. This is just more practice but I will make this into a bracelet for something a little different /lighter than a full beaded one.
My next makes should be interesting as Roy convinced me that it was a good idea to treat myself to some Wubbers looping pliers. If you know what these are you’ll appreciate why I’m looking forward to that delivery.
Are you into jewellery making? What was your latest make and do you have any top tips for this enthusiastic beginner?
