The Pleasure of Sharing

For the last few days, Jenny and I have shared our jewellery making hobby.  We’ve both been working on various projects, though for different reasons.  Most of what Jenny has made will be used for Christmas presents.  Mine, however, are simply a result of the pleasure I derive from making things!  It’s been rather magical though, both of us sat here surrounded by beads, findings and such, each enjoying the company of the other and sharing the trials and triumphs.

Obviously, as Jenny’s works are for gifts, I don’t want to risk them being seen so I’ll just display some of the pieces I’ve made:


Looking to Christmas

Well, I’ve definitely gotten hooked on jewellery making 😉. Today I ordered Christmas presents for both Jenny and myself 😄. Placed the order with, for a chasing hammer and steel block (Jenny’s) and a small tool set (mine – shame they only do pink 😝). I also ordered a bead mat and bead tray for myself (though Jenny will probably take them for wrapping with the tool set!). While I was at it, I also ordered a set of gemstone strands that had somehow survived being price slashed! Sodalite and jasper – beautiful set.

I really need to build up my stash of gemstones. I’ve very few left, mostly peridot chips. Of course, it would be so much easier to get a good size stash if I could afford to buy more – at the moment, I’m usually using up the few gemstones I’ve bought in no time at all 😄

That’s all for now. Hopefully the next post will be of more interest!
