Pt 1. Jewelry Making with Beads, Stones and Crystals

Freshwater pearl in red, lapis lazuli, rose quarts, amethyst
Some Czech crystals
Even more Czech crystals but smaller

I decided to enter into the foray of doing hand-made/hand-crafted goods that does not involve doing any form of typing. It needed to be small, compact, easy to travel with, something that I could make and then keep. Also something inexpensive. I decided to get started with jewelry making when I came across a profile of a designer, artist and jewelry workshop organizer. Had a look at her studio/home office for supplies (spent a good 60 minutes just talking about jewelry making!) and came home with some materials to get started with including a few starter tools.

I was quiet happy with the trip and result. First I need to do a few practice rounds with the bendable wire before I get started with the materials. I have in mind to do at least one ring and a bracelet.
