My First Jewellery Class

Well, yesterday was my first 'official' class. Some of the teachers at school put their names down to attend and I had six ladies. While teaching is what I do all the time and I'd had some girls come to learn at home from me, I hadn't done this officially yet. I organised packs for them to choose from. They had a choice of 3 colours. They also had a choice of two bracelets to make with these beads; easy, medium and difficult. They were all really pleased with what they had made. Most chose the medium bracelet.

I have my name down to teach a class during the holidays. On Friday I find out if there is enough interest for it to go ahead. I hope so, as that would be with people who have never met me before and would spread my possible clientel.

New Banner

Well, I asked Anne, another Australian etsy-er to retouch my banner for me. She did it in minutes and it looks so much better. Finally a banner I'm not ashamed of. Check it out.

If you click over to my etsy store you'll see it in its full glory. I'll have to work out a way to use this on the website. Still waiting on that manual by the way.

Anne also did the avator for ClayGraphia (see link) and touched up the banner there too because the original was all fuzzy.

I have been putting together some wonderful pieces in the last couple of days. A lovely Lapis Lazuli necklace. I wish I had a camera to take a pic. I'm finally coming up with some ideas on how to use all my beads and stones that I've had for over a year.

If only I would sell.....
