What a year it has been! 2011 began with me thinking about 'doing' something more with my jewellery, (just because I was never going to wear everything that I was making). I applied to attend some markets, with lots of encouragement from some friends, thanks Sonia, Keri and Majane!
I have learnt about writing applications and taking photos (I am terrible ~ thanks Keri for the wonderful photos you have taken for me). I am still struggling with the whole pricing and 'selling myself' thing but I guess it is a gradual learning process and one I need to keep working on.
The type of jewellery I make has changed and evolved and I hope will continue to do so. I still love doing all sorts of different techniques but I really love working with silver, piercing, forging, soldering, and forming and of course working with glass. I have found that combining these things with the use of gemstones has been a wonderful transition.
Hmmm..what do I make though? Well the basic pieces such as necklaces, rings and bracelets have been added to. My work now includes, lanyards, rings, hat/scarf pins, bag charms, key rings, bookmarks, wine charms and glasses chains.
Oh there is so much to cover from 2011 that I think I might add to it in another post!
Have a good night all and I will catch up with you in the morning with next 5 daily gratitudes! :)
