My workspace

Good morning all, it's rather cold here at the moment but the sun is shining and all is right with the world.
I though today I'd take you for a bit of a tour around my work area, these pictures were taken quite a while ago and it's by no means this tidy now. That's what comes of using things and buying more tools etc etc. Anyway, I hope you find this interesting
My beautiful work bench made by my wonderful husband for my birthday last year

In addition to the things shown above I have cabinets and shelves of beads findings etc. I originally included the pictures here but thought they'd bore you to tears.

The little white box under the desk lets me use all the tools that I've 'temporarily' borrowed from my husband. He bought them when he still lived in the US so we have to change the power used.

Here's a picture of the first thing I made at the bench, infact I think it's the first piece of jewellery I made solely out of metal. It's only really a practise piece for textures and no where near good enough to wear but you'll get the idea

I'll publish a few of my more inspired (if you can call them that) pieces over the next few weeks

Well that's all for today

At long last

Well at long last I've started working on my blog.

I've been a real slacker, with 2 babies it's pretty hard to find the time to make and list things on etsy let alone keep a blog up todate.

I've made myself a bit of a promise of late, to keep my etsy store stocked and uptodate and to work on marketing it. It's easy for me to sit on my behind and say sob sob poor old me I haven't sold anything but there's nothing I can do about it.

Well balderdash, of course there's something I can do. Market myself and my jewellery. I love making it and use every spare moment to make something new and pick up new skills so I should jolly well find some spare moments to sell it and that's what I'm doing!!

I've recently jointed an Etsy Street Team called etsymoms and they're really supported and have heaps of information so...............

Wish me luck, lets see if I can't sell something before the end of the month
Bye for now
