Reality check

Two weeks into the New Year and how is 2011 treating you so far? Don't know about you but Ive stopped making resolutions in recent years. Now I tend to look at what I want out of life instead. A good place to start is to stop beating myself up over things I can't change. Sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day to accomplish everything. Do what you can and don't forget to make time for yourself.

Part of making time for myself lately is experimenting with metal. This hammered brass disk with freshwater pearl dangle is part of a charm chain I created recently. You can see the rest of the necklace and some other new pieces on BUY BLING.

For me, the stamped message is a good reminder of how to look at the rest of the year -- and life.

Have a good one.

You have to start somewhere

Q. When does a hobby stop being a hobby?
A. When you no longer continue the activity for pure enjoyment.

That being said, I’m a hobbyist who enjoys creating. My current interest is mostly jewellery – glass beads, metal, natural stone and minerals. I get a kick learning a technique or working with a medium I haven’t tried before. The problem is what do I do with all the items I’ve made. My solution is this blog.

I’d rather see the bracelets, necklaces et al find a home with someone who will enjoy wearing them as much as I did making them. If I can cover my costs as well, then I can afford to keep trying new projects without going broke. Sounds good in theory. Hope it works.

Look forward to hearing from you by email if you see something you like or have questions.
