Every once in a while I get the urge to make something out of teeny wire and beads. So I delved into my gemstone stash and that's what I did this weekend. (I know--I have to get a life.) After this I'm ready to go back to something big and chunky. Beer quartz briolettes with mystic quartz and iolite rondelles.
I started my jewelry making journey in 2006 and it quickly took over my spare room and spread out into the living room. I was able to retire from my civil service job in August 2008 and I'm now able to focus on it full time.
