  • A change of direction for me

    Well, after spending the past 4 years or so accumulating what seems to be the entire world's supply of beads, and then becoming increasingly frustrated with trying to sell the jewellery made out of said beads, I've decided a big change is in order.

    I'm now only working in polymer clay, which is a medium I love, and I find making my own beads sooo satisfying. Not only can I make jewellery, I've had quite a few enquiries from people who want to buy beads from me too

    If you want to keep updated with my switch from glass beaded jewellery to polymer clay, check out my FB page www.facebook.com/ladyluckjewellery

    There'll be another announcement of a new craft venture there soon too!!!

    I think it's becoming increasingly common for those of us who have been making beaded jewellery to move into a more "niche" area, if that makes sense. No offence at all intended to anyone who makes beaded jewellery - it's still one of my loves! - but with so many people now giving it a go, there is a need to make what you do a bit more individual. That's why chainmaille has struck such a chord with me - not a massive number of people over here doing it yet, so I have a chance to build my knowledge and my skills, plus I am completely addicted!!

    So good luck with your new direction, and I hope it takes you on an exciting journey!!

      I think as good business owners we have to move with the times to grow and survive, making your own beads is more creative so good for you

                    Thanks for all of the good wishes everyone!!! I just need to get my butt into gear & tidy up my work area so I can get making in clay again, at the moment it looks like a bomb has gone off & scattered beads everywhere!!!
