  • Hello ...

    ... from a cold Edinburgh. Am new to the forum but have been having a look at some of the info before registering. Looks a great place for advice, looking forward to taking part.

    Like many others, I have a proper job but am wanting to look at ways to expand the creative side and reduce 'proper job' hours. I do a variety of crafts, started with card making and from there developed into picture framing and now onto jewellery. Have been making jewellery for a little under 2 years and do the occasional party. Have tried craft fairs with the cards, but not very successful.

    I got into chain maille at the latter end of last year. Attended some fantastic worshops and am now adicted to the little silver rings. Am in the process of arranging for a hallmark to be set up - which I'm quite excited about!!

    Looking forward to meeting new friends

    Sorry for the long-winded Hello ...

    HI

    Hi and welcome

    I am sure you will enjoy it here.

    I have done a small amount of chain maille and used a lot of the patterns you can find online.

    I know how addictive it can be

    Would love to see some photos of your jewellery sometime.
    Take care

      Hello Bev and to the forum. I don't have a 'proper job' since last Feb, just thought almost a year, time has flown and I am having fun. Would not work for anyone else again, times can be hard but you are in control not someone sitting on a stall telling you what to do. You have to be disciplined, hence why I am on this forum,lol , when I should be working. A few of us have this problem, very friendly here but keeps calling me back to the screen, so also addictive.

      Enjoy your time here.

                Hello Bev and welcome

                I agree with Caroline - this forum is definitely addictive.

                I too, gave up my well paid office job, as I had my daughter and I decided to carry on with my glass work and work around looking after my daughter full time. I absolutely love working from home and do not miss the 'office job'.

                Good luck with your crafts.
                Take care

                    "Cold" Edinburgh? Pah ! You know not what COLD is - try living in Banffshire....!

                    Good luck with the halllmarking, would love to see your work when you get the chance.
                    With love,
