Bespokes jewellery

I haven't made jewellery for what feels like ages (and that's not counting the small beading project's I made at home because that's not really making jewellery now is it), but I just don't have the time with me working as many hours as possible & getting ready for my trip.

Adding in the normal hassles of live (cooking ,cleaning, sorting out bills) I just don't have the time!

And I'm starting to miss it something terrible, it appears I really can't go that long without making jewellery so I will just have to figure something out to be able to squeeze it in. Especially now when I need to make some extra money so anything I have time to make and sell would definitely help.

And working as much as I am is slowly melting my brain into this big pile of guu!

But on a happier note!
I have received a bespoke order on a ring! Will order stone today the when receiving it will work out material cost. That's because the customer in question is interested in having it in gold and I generally don't work in gold. This is for 2 reasons.
1: I prefer silver.
2: Gold is more expensive.

But if someone wants gold I will definitely look into it (because I can work in gold, that's not an issue).

Anyways once I've made it I will probably post some pictures. The customer made up the design herself so I hope it will turn out OK. :-)
Hopefully this will be start of me getting more time to make jewellery!

I like hand made jewellery. You can combine pleasure of making it with the beauty of the final, original piece.

I think that's the reason behind most art, the pleasure of creating & the final piece. It's the best feeling in the world to create something from scratch & then hand it over to someone else that appreciates the work behind it :-) Thou sometimes I find it hard to part from something I made.
