Oops, I'm out of order. I thought I had posted this. When I'm at shows I take along some Viking knit to work on as it's something I can do to pass the time without having to think about it, and it starts conversations with customers. After ending up with about five feet of silver, I switched to copper for obvious reasons. I finally got around to making something with it. This is just a chunky bangle using Greek Mykonos ceramic beads and some Bali style spacers. The pretty rose bronze end caps are from Heather Ferman.
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.
