I have been making and designing jewellery for as long as I can remember, I made tiaras and have taught myself beading and wire work and moved fairly recently into Precious Metal Clay. I love to make a wide range of lovelies and have done quite well across fairs, at work and now am delving into the strange and complicated world of the Internet, with my Folksy shop.
I have become rather frustrated that I can't do some of the things I want to do and so I decided what I really lacked was some of the basics that I missed out on by teaching myself and being quite specific in what I wanted to learn.
So back to school I go. Hopefully I will be able to realise some of those designs I have worked on but can't quite bring to
fruition because of lack of skills.
I have always believed it is never to late to learn and had the best time, when I did my Art degree which I achieved in my 40th year and then my Post Grad in teaching the following
year. But I have become lazy and I miss learning new skills and developing my creativity, so I am really looking forward to my new challenge.
Watch this space and I will let you know how it goes....wish me luck
