March has been a busy month in the 'real' world, but less busy for me virtually, hence my shocking lack of posts. I am pleased to report my jewellery-making muscles have been exercised though, and with the normal result of satisfaction and frustration... I was also fortunate enough to wander through a daffodil field, when the sun was shining - and warm! Photographic proof of the former, at least, above. And I've still made time for a nosy around the net ...
Amazing bangle, just love this, and a beautiful ring.
Texture ideas for metal clay (and polymer too). They're everywhere! So much info here I've not yet read it all...
Photos and photos and photos of stunning wooden jewellery.
I love how simple and effective these earring cards are.
A photo of a cat's paws can inspire some very nice jewellery indeed... how playing with colour can work.
Simple guide to ageing copper - both ways smell though... and more on copper, how to create head pins. And some info on soldering with copper solder paste here too.
Quirky recreated vintage jewellery.
And some ~other links~
I love these trompe l'oeil pillow covers.
Great hints on product photography here and a simple idea for backgrounds here too.
Ever fancied learning more about printing, and being inspired as well? Check this out.
Enough audio books to keep anyone happy - 550 free to download and stream
I love the colours of this simple painted bouquet.
Something to read and think about...
Beautiful, creamy and so relaxing just looking at these images...
Hope your March was good, and your April even better.
