Well, here goes nothing!

I've always thought that blogging was for super geeks and intellectuals and here I am, blogging. I hope you enjoy this little adventure with me.

I love jewelry and have been making jewelry since high school. I started when I made a 3 inch glass teardrop into a light catcher by stringing it by beads. Then onto super simple beaded necklaces. I actually remember the first time I ever made something. I mean not just stringing color patterns but actually having and idea prior to starting and following that idea blindly and trying so hard to have the vision come true. Well it did and I still have that necklace. It's crude, not very wearable but damn is it beautiful. I think I just realized how much that piece actually means to me. WOW an epiphany!

I digress. I love jewelry of all kinds and I hope to showcase some of the very talented, creative and interesting people that also have the first piece of jewelry they made tucked away for safe keeping.

Here is a video of my idols. I have been following these guys for years. I first saw a piece of there jewelry on a lady in 1989 or so and feel in love with polymer clay cane work and have been following them every since. These 2 make we weep with inspiration of the process, creative release and of letting go of fear.
