Branching out!

I've decided to get new materials to make other types of jewellery with.

Besides Hama beads I'm going to be working with polymer clay to make little kawaii style imitation food charms to put on necklaces and charm bracelets.

I'll also be making computer game-inspired charms too (pacman charm bracelet complete with ghosts and fruit that you can munch in the game will probably be first up!)

Baby steps.

I just placed my first wholesale order for jewellery supplies.

All I'm wondering now is: since when did "jewellery" become "jewelry", I don't like it when that happens to words. Poor yoghurt lost its 'H' now too.

In other news:
I think I might need to find out postage and packaging prices and really get this Etsy store up and running!

Right, short and sweet.

New ideas. One request, one just me:

Request: Lightning bolt.

Two things that are awesome!!

Read the title!! Here they are!

1. I made my first actual real proper full-on sales. Since the first one I gave was a freebie and the second was a present I've not actually technically sold any of my necklaces. But tonight I sold not one, not two, but THREE necklaces to my friends. SMUG.

2. This one is even better, a friend of a friend tonight came into the pub and apparently pointed in my direction and went "is that 'Pixelate My Face'?" How cool is that!

Anyway, before sleep tonight I'll hopefully be posting some new ideas up and an attempt at a lightning bolt which I think is pretty sweet looking.

DUN... DUN.... DUN!!!

You know how in movies when someone realises something or sees something shocking it sometimes does this thing where it zooms in on it in stages, each accompanied by a massive drum strike? Is that a terrible description of it? Yes.

Anyway, I had one of these realisations last night just before I was about to fall asleep, it went something like this:




See that?? SEE THAT??? BLACK BEADS!!

I had a whole bunch of them all along! 

So that's allowed me to make a lil ole happy Pacman and a Boss Key. Photos to be up on the Facebook shortly.
