Winter is almost over. THANK GOD!
This is the season when I am most heavily into swapbot. I have noticed a trend over the years that from about January through March I am swapping like mad. It truly gets me through the darkest days of winter.
Since we moved, my welder and kiln are sitting unused. The new place doesn't have the wiring capabilities that the old place had (there is actually fuses in the garage), so I'm stuck doing inside stuff. I haven't done a lot with beading and I got a swap partner this time that said in her profile that bracelets are her thing...and purple...and butterflies. So, I thought I would try my hand at some jewelry making.
To be honest, I really don't make very much jewelry, but I enjoy it. Maybe it's because it seems like everyone makes it. I think there are more jewelry artisans on Etsy than any other artist. I just don't see the market in it. Makes for a nice gift though huh?
