The one where it all begins....

Step 1: Set up blog

Step 2: Write something witty and exciting to attract the masses.

Write something.

So, I guess I should begin by introducing myself! My name's Karen, and I am just learning the art of making jewellery. It all began when I was out shopping in a town near to where I live, and spotted a bead shop. I was mesmerized by all of the colours, shapes and sizes of the beads, but I decided that I just didn't have time for another hobby.


I couldn't sleep, thinking about the beads. A few days later, I went back to the town and picked up some supplies. It was a long time before I was brave enough to actually make something, but it turned out pretty well! Several purchases later, and I had the beginning of a brand new obsession, which has now spiraled into a huge obsession, so much so that all of my jewellery making stuff has taken over the laundry room!

My aim for this blog is to chat about jewellery making, share some of my creations and perhaps even share some tips - if I ever become skilled enough to be giving advice! I hope to engage with many other crafters, not just jewellery makers but anyone who likes to make things, so don't be shy! Leave a comment, because half of the fun of blogging is making new friends! :D
