Now that shows are pretty much done for the year it's time to get caught up on my blog. I recently had a class with a fun group of gals from the Owosso Country Cub who wanted to learn to make a viking knit bangle. It was not just viking knit, it was double viking knit. In spite of some struggles I assured them that, even if it looked like a train wreck, the magic would happen when we got out the drawplate. I always love seeing how students react when they see the results of pulling the chain through the drawplate. As you can see, every single bracelet turned out beautifully.
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.
