Made a Ring!

I just made my first Ring and I can`t express my high fly feelings for it!

14k gold filled with a smooth stunning Labradorite!

I know my technique could be better, but I am so motivated to learn more!

I Love Labradorite and as this is my first Ring, I guess I will keep it forever :)

I feel so much full of joy, motivation and happiness!
Do you know that feeling if you discover something NEW?
And you get exited all over?

Preparing for a Design Market!

Actually I wanted to work on my Jewelry Today, but then I realized, that as long as I have no Idea how I will showcase my Jewelry at the Design Market coming up in September, I had to do that first!

So I started running trough the House getting all my Pieces together.
All my Jewelry stands where nicely packed from my last Fair and I had to unpack them all...

As I am sharing my Stand with a wonderful Etsy Friend to lower the costs, I had to reorganize the hole showcase New, as I have not so much Space as usually.

I know it looks a bit poor with out the Jewelry hanging all over, but I am looking forward to do so and I have the feeling with will look good :) Only the Tiger Lili Stand I am not shore, maybe I leave it at Home, hmm what do you think?

I am very glade I found a way how to manage with the small space and that now I do have a Idea on how I want to showcase everything. Really have to say that calms me :)

So now I can start concentrate my self on filling all those Beautiful Stands :)
The ones of you that also do Markets and Fairs, are you also so nervous and in a rush before everything is prepared?
And the ones of you that do no Fairs, do you like to go to Markets and Fairs to discover New unique Pieces?

Behind Handmade!

I think People sometimes have no Idea how much Work stands behind Handmade.
I can`t offer you a making off,
but I like to share my steps till a Piece is finish.

Rock Crystal point braided Leather Sterling Silver Necklace!
1. Besides having all the tools to do a new Piece it all starts with organizing all the Materials, some online, some of special Shops, some on Gemstone Fairs!

2. Creating a new Jewelry Piece in my mind or draw it, then make it :)

3. Calculate the Price and then wait for the right light to take Photos. Sometimes I take soooo many till I feel I finally got the good ones...

4. listing them Online, or bringing them down Town where there is a Shop selling my Jewelry, or organizing Fairs and Markets or private Events.

5. When it sells, packing all nicely :)

6. Then bringing it to the Post Office and do all the end Calculation!
So there are really many steps in to Handmade that we can`t see when we look at a Design.
I did keep myself short here, there are even more smaller steps included.
What do you think about Handmade?
