A to Z – J is for Jewellery Making.

Jewellery making – 

I love crafting, I don’t have much time or patience for it these days but before R was born I would sit and make jewellery, I started out with simple earrings, they’re pretty easy to make…

Beads, head pins, tools and the part that goes into the ear, but I wanted more, and I developed a little addiction to beads! 

From then on I learnt how to knot a piece of elastic properly to prevent a bracelet from breaking to box knotting a shamballa bracelet which was all the rage a while back.

Around 2015 I got into metal stamping, I LOVE metal stamping, it’s the expensive end of the jewellery making but I love it! I have a little collection of blanks, fonts etc.. I got myself a metal polishing machine and had so much fun making things for my family and for myself.

I never sold any of it, never thought I was good enough but I loved doing it.
And honestly I have considered going back and doing it again, I just wish I had the time and the motivation to do so.

Until next time
