I didn’t wear much jewelry when I was younger; I kinda grew into it. Later, when I started looking at how jewelry is made (that’s the geeky side of me showing itself), hand-made jewelry caught my interest. I first became fascinated with paper jewelry, which I learned about when I was researching papier mâché. Then, since I’m also into crocheting, I came across wire crochet. After trying that, there was no looking back. There’s just such a variety of jewelry and so many techniques of jewelry making present now — so much to learn and get inspiration from. Creating jewelry from beads, charms and wire has become, if not my obsession, at least a source of relaxation and happiness. I don’t own fancy equipment yet, and will probably not do so for a long, long time, but making do with what one has is a fun challenge in itself! 😉
And now, I’ve created this blog to jot down my experiments and mishaps, and the results thereof, in jewelry making.
