Hi! 🙂 I’m relatively new to blogging (specially one that doesn’t involve charity work) and a newbie in the jewellery making world so I thought it could be a good idea to learn and develop those two fields together.
I’ve always found jewellery making quite interesting but it wasn’t until fairly recently that I started looking around, buying some materials and actually making pieces myself.
While I am still raw in the “business”, I’m very happy to notice that my little developing passion hasn’t gone away (specially after the lovely, long and addictive trips to Hobby Craft and pounds given away).
I have to confess that between my full-time office job and busy lifestyle it can be quite challenging to find the time to focus on a hobby that demands this level of brain-work and, more than anything, patience! But it’s a great getaway to the stress that builds up so easily!
Last year, I went for my first creation: very simple, easy to make earrings that actually caught some of my friends attention. Here they are:
The compliments I got were a huge boost so I went off and tried some more:
Eventually, I had a jewellery class to help me kick start on necklaces and bracelets and this was the result:
Before I noticed, my friends were asking me to create some jewellery pieces for them. It felt great as I did my best to try and personalise as much as they wanted. Here are some of the results:

Alice in Wonderland themed earrings
In the meantime, I’ve been onto my creations, on and off, due to such a busy schedule but I am very tempted to schedule time during the week so I can develop this new hobby. I have to say I am really enjoying this!
I will post more of my past pieces as well as the new ones once I’m blogging again…
Thank you for reading! 🙂
