End of Summer - JAC September Challenge






End Of Summer – JAC September Challenge


For September the Jewelry Artisans Community challenge was to make something that represents the End of Summer.
I am a tad bit behind with writing my posts about the challenges we have for the Jewelry Artisans Community and I will try to write 2 post in this week.
For september we reveived the image above as a guideline to create a jewelry piece.
I think we all succeeded very well, and even Caroline from the Crafty Chimp had some time to join us that month.
I will no longer keep you in suspense, here are all .....(continue reading at the link below)

JAC - October Blog Carnival





JAC - October Blog Carnival

 

For October we were supposed to write an article for the monthly blog carnival.
We completely forgot to choose a theme for this months entry and we just remembered it when the month was good as over.


I forgot about the blog hop because I was working on the photo’s for my galleries and I had a show on the 16th, so in the week before I was sorting out all the pieces I wanted to bring and getting ready for the show. In the week after .................

Tools - JAC September Blog Carnival







Tools – 

JAC September Blog Carnival


This post is for the blog carnival (blog hop) at the Jewelry Artisans Community and it’s all about tools, the ones I have, the ones I use a lot, the ones I made myself or my hubby and those that are still on my wishlist.
I have a lot of tools that I bought and I still haven’t used them.
I bought a few drawplates years ago to draw wire trough to get different shaped wires.
I think I used them once or twice. So far I counted 3 bench vises, tons of pliers, a jewelers saw, a loom, a torch and so on.

Bead Store Experiences - August 2016 Blog Carnival



Bead Store Experiences – August 2016 Blog Carnival


This post is for the blog carnival at the Jewelry Artisans Community and it’s all about our experiences with bead stores.

We have a lovely craft store in one the surrounding villages but I don’t go there much anymore.
I did go there almost every week before I discovered the internet
They carry a comprehensive variaty of beads and findings but the things I mostly look for is either not in their stock or way to expensive.
I do love to go to small bead stores though, when ever ................

Zip it up - JAC June / July Challenge.





Zip it up – JAC June / July Challenge.


Cat told us that she’s more of a zipper girl than a button girl. So, in honor of Cat, our challenge for this round is to create a jewelry design using zippers or something zipper related in our design.
So once again the challenge for the  Jewelry Artisans Community was set.
This time it was “Zip it up
It was a good thing we had extra time for this challenge because I realy needed it.
Not for the creation itself, I needed the time to come with a design for it.
One of the problems we ran into was that most of us didn’t have any zippers.
