Getting Craftier.

I have decided to try my hand at making some (very) basic jewellery, I have just bought a 600 piece started kit from eBay for £5.00. I know that the quality may not be very good but I need to start somewhere and this kit looks like it will do the job perfectly.

I have really gotten into jewellery in the last 18 months. So much so that I no longer see a plain black t-shirt, I see a blank canvas to introduce colour through a necklace! I would love to wear something that I had made.

I also really hope to be able to give my mum and sisters a little something that I have crafted at Christmas time. I love personal gifts that have greater thought value than cost!

I now just have to wait for the kit to get here - I will let you know how I am getting on when it gets here!

Enjoy! I've been learning more and more over the last twelve months. This weekend I'm taking a fused silver bracelet making class.
