Fingernails

Ok, so I am going to have to give up any hope of ever being able to grow fingernails long. They just get in the way and mark up your clay. I was a midwife for years and could not have long fingernails then either.

Have you given up anything for your art (well, besides time and money)? Let me know. I am sure there are people out there who have given up much more than long fingernails. LOL

So here is my first blog! or should I be twittering

Not so strong in the techno area. I am starting this blog to document my discovery and growth in the jewelry making field. I have been making jewelry now for about 9 months. First with just little cheap plastic beads, making earrings out of premade french hook wires. Then moved on to a bit more expensive beads, then to doing some wire wrapping, then on to making my own beads with polymer clay.

I am excited about my growth and somewhat daunted by the ever expansive world of handcrafted jewelry. I had no idea about this other world when I first started. I just was bored one day and my son had left his beads at my house. I have now turned this innocent beggining into a couple hundred dollar a month habit. But my husband is happy as it is keeping me out of other trouble. LOL

So, here starts the documentation of my adventure.
