Are there any craft fairs or markets being held in your area where you could see about a stall, or maybe book one in readiness for any Christmas fayres, markets etc :cup1: :cup1: :cup1:

Hi gizmo72, don't know how much jewellery you have made but if you use facebook have you though about creating your own page for the things you have made, and sharing your page on some of the selling pages in your area?

Hi, you could try a local shop, such sd a hairdresser. What materials do you use? I'm interested because I make jewellery too. I string beads but my favorite technique is bead weaving, on and off loom. I've done a local Christmas craft fair and didn't sell much although I did get a commission out of it! You could also host a jewellery party at home and get friends and family round for wine and nibbles, or whatever, and display your work. Most of my commissions come about because someone sees me wearing a piece and wants one too. Give it a go and good luck!
There are these three things that remain: faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is LOVE.

If you do bead loom weaving do you need any free seed beads? Have a pile of them I'll nver use and happy to give away. I used to make a variety of jewellery years ago before my finger joints gave up the ghost due to Duputyres Contracture. Have so many crafting components stashed from years ago in this house. They were originally sent to me by a friend in America , but seem to be fairly standard sizing. Can dig them out if you'd want them.

Hi Zappa,
I'd love them if you're sure. Do you do any other kind of craft? I'm just thinking maybe I could give you something in exchange? Its really kind of you :-D

Hi Bandj,

Sorry I didn't see your post. for some reason I don't get notified when a thread is updated , so lose track of my postings. I've given up all crafts now ,several fingers I can't bend at all. I'll look them out for you and get back to you for an address. Our house is still pretty full of my previous hobby materials so thanks for your kind offer but no exchange needed. Just pleased for them to be used rather than stashed in the back of a cupboard for no reason.

Be in touch shortly

Hello lovely people

Wow - I didn't think they'd be many of us jewellery makers here! I've been making my own for about 8 years although I haven't touched my beads or tools for about a year now - I'm too tired! I need to get back into it as at the moment I just sleep - work, sleep - work.

:sleep:
