it all started...

with some beads and a jewelry making class at the local YMCA.

I actually do not wear jewelry, but I am totally fascinated by all the colours, textures and possibilities that jewelry making offers. When I get new "stuff", I just have to look at it and touch it a hundret times before I actually can decide what I will make out of it. Do not laugh, but I actually have beads, paper and fabric that I have kept for years and did not use it because I just like it too much and am afraid that I cannot buy it again. I know it is weird!

My first tries of jewelry making were not always a success. They fell apart after ten minuets or did not look so great. BUT - practice makesit better. Today my creations do not break after ten minutes anymore:)

Some of the first creations...
In the next posts I will show some newer stuff and as I make new projects, I will try to share some of my experiences about materials, tools and techniques.
