As I am learning and making jewellery I will be writing up my experiences and notes from the jewellery making courses I attend and my own experiences.

Wire wrapping and sea glass are my passion.

Writing up my notes, for me, is a great way to really learn - and with my notes online I can always access them! Courses I have been on, and will be writing about, include: - An Introduction to Silver Metal Clay - Making Jewellery - Jewellery Summer School - - Introduction to Beading - Wirework - Wirework Insects.
