I’m constantly looking for inspirations from either the world around me or things I see on the internet.Books and magazines also provide inspiration and help in learning new techniques.
I’m by no means any kind of expert, very much a dabbling beginner. I make stuff when I’m well enough to do so as a therapeutic hobby mostly. Though being able to make things for friends as gifts is lovely too!
Pinterest can be like searching on wikipedia in a way as you find something, you look at the website, then it spirals from there. A great time sink! and great fun too!!
I use springpad too to save bookmarks from my phone. Often I’ll be unable to sleep so will find things on my phone to come back to later. Whether I will is an entirely different matter, but I prefer to bookmark/pin/spring such things so I can if I so desire later.
Springpad for jewellery
If you wish to have your blog/tutorial linked to here please comment and I’ll happily take a look :)
Finally none of my items would be possible without the websites I get beads and supplies from :) the main one being madcowbeads.com they provide great service and great prices:)
