The purpose of this blog was to promote my jewelry. What jewelry? The jewelry I design in my head all the time, what did you think I was talking about?
I really enjoy making jewelry but I don't particularly enjoy photographing it or trying to sell it. But sometimes the smallest thing sends me skittering off in a new direction and doggone it if I'm not going to be fabulous at it - again, in my mind.
Today I was trying to catch up on my blog reading and I read this post, over at The Beading Gem's Journal. Pearl writes the most interesting posts, links to awesome tutorials and introduces readers to new techniques and trends all the time. I particularly enjoy some of the articles she writes about the history of gems and jewlry. She makes it so interesting!
I tried chain maille after reading something on her blog. After I read that post on her blog today, and watched the tutorials - off I was for literally 2 hours scouring the internet for a starter metal stamping kit. 2 hours I really should have been spending doing laundry, cleaning my house, and maybe wrapping presents.
Finally I managed to convince myself this is a gift for myself I need to wait till after Christmas to buy (probably because it's too early in the day to be shopping on Ambien). But just wait - I'll be terrific at it, you'll see!
