Here it is the first week of March and I find myself wondering where did February go? The month ended and I still had a million tasks still left to do. Life and work has been hectic and crazy and blessed. Sadly it all kept me from doing one of my most favorite things, creating and blogging. Hopefully I can get back in my routine and back on track soon. To start off, I have a quick jewelry tutorial to share with you.
I am so fascinated by art jewelry. Among my favorite pieces are those that incorporate embossed metal designs like those from the team at Vintaj. They absolutely blow my mind with their creativity. I have been using their books (linked below in the supplies section) and their blog as instruction for teaching myself more about making art jewelry. I recently made a pendant (shown above) that was born out of a mistake.
Earlier this week I sat down for a crafting night with Emma. Beading and art jewelry beads are one of her favorite crafts thanks to some lessons from my mom. I don’t consider myself a jewelry maker, but I am very fascinated with it, especially by inked metal designs like those from Vintaj. I have building up quite a stash of supplies and tools lately and have decided to teach myself jewelry making. Armed with a pair of really great instruction books from Vintaj (see the links in the supply section below) I set out to create. I shared a photo of my work in progress on Instagram / Facebook / Twitter and got several a few requests for jewelry tutorials. I will warn you, I am not an expert, but I will share what I discover along the way!
Happy Friday! I am not sure what happened, but along the way in sharing the projects I made for CHA in January, I got sidetracked. I still have a ton to share and am going to buckle down and get them posted. Today I have an embossed metal house numbers sign that features Vintaj.
