New Year Resolution - Update

I've been making jewellery for a long time, since I was in school in fact. Back then, it was friendship bracelets in colourful cottons and patterns. The whole scope of jewellery making has changed so much thanks to the Internet, now you can order any kind of bead you like from anywhere in the world...amazing!

I've concentrated so much on trying to build a career over the last few years and to be honest, I'm just about there. But ever more lately I feel myself almost yearning for time to make jewellery. My dream to live in a tiny cottage by the sea with my daughter, making a living from designing and selling my jewellery takes up a large part of my thinking time. So, at New Year, at my favourite place by the sea, I lit a magic lantern on the beach and let it float up high into the sky while making my resolution to spend more time in my dreams.

What have I done so far?

1. Launched this blog
2. Entered two challenges and one competition
3. Made more jewellery in 11 weeks than I did in the whole of last year
4. Arranged to take an introductory class in making glass beads
5. Ordered my first art beads!
6. Chatted to lots of new friends all over the world who all love jewellery and design as much as I do

Hooray for dreams!

  1. Hooray for dreams indeed! I too dream of living by the sea and making jewellery and (for me) singing for a living all the time (rather than doing so much teaching of it....*sigh*). Good luck with fulfilling your dreams Deb!
