My name is Jo and I have 3 boys - age 7 and 4 (twins). I am a stay at home mum but increasingly filling my time with Jewellery making. I'm finding it very hard to find the time to get any jewellery made with the boys running around and being glued to the computer wading through all the different sites that are out there!
It's half-term and I'm at my parents in Cheshire for some much needed respite. I'm going on a course tomorrow to learn how to make beaded tassels at a place called The Bead Trail at Blakemere Craft Centre in Cheshire. I love going on courses and have been on quite a few recently; I learnt how to do Fingerprint Jewellery at the Dulwich School of Jewellery . I really enjoyed working with Precious Metal Clay and a whole new world of possibilities had opened up to me! I plan to do even more courses there when I get time.
I also have few courses lined up with Jean Power, editor of Bead Magazine. One course is learning Chain Maille and the other is Viking Weave. Her courses are great fun and really informative - I'm lucky enough to have been on two already. I'll let you know how I get on.
Will post a few pictures when I return home as I'm on my new laptop and it is bare!
Well slowly I am catching up with everyone else in blogging, twittering, facebooking, Flickr etc etc. How does anyone find time to Create???? I have so much to learn!
