Jewelled Web - April 2014 - Link Love

April 2014 Jewelled web link love

Another quiet month in blog-land - in terms of posts, and also being on the net in general (bad reception, slow web connections...) but I've still found a few items that I think are worth sharing. And, look at the photo... sun! Hope you've had some sunshine this last month, of all kinds.

Enjoy the links.

Here's a few ~jewellery links~

Thoughts on reticulating silver...

And an experiment in fusing fine silver and argentium

And some words about silver tarnish and whether it's good or bad... or both...

I do love seeing what people can make from 'waste' silver (and gold)...

Great tutorial on how to make moulds/molds for polymer clay jewellery using seeds and flowers.

Speaking of polymer clay, love this grinning cat earring - makes me smile!

And some ~non-jewellery links~

Informative and helpful post on Folksy about photographing your crafts, with equally helpful before and after photos.

Great collection of DIY goodies to make or just dream of making...

I've only just found this blog, Three Beautiful Things, but love its simplicity, honesty and reminders of not only the beauty around us everyday, but that we need to remember to notice and be grateful for it...

How blogging can change a life.

Hope you had a good April, and an even better May.
