    March 14, 2014 admin

    It’s been a while since I had set to my Kumihimo disc. You see I’ve been in a crochet kind of a mood lately, but when I saw these snake closures (just search Ebay for “snake toggle clasp” – these suckers come direct from China and take about a month to receive)  I knew I…

  • Easy Swinging Jump Ring Earrings Tutorial

    March 11, 2014 admin

    I’m not one of those people who knows everything there is to know about jewelry making. In fact, I know quite little. Imagine, if you will, going into the bead store and trying to show what you want with the shape of your hands and words like “thingamabob”. It ain’t fun but it’s what I…

    Today we’re going to make a big, beaded bobble ring! I don’t wear too many rings, probably because my fingers are pretty fat. But when cheap costume jewelry rings became all the rage, including those expandable rings, my collection grew by tons. Not only would I pick up one or two myself but my nephews…

    August 16, 2013 admin

    When I was a kid we often went to a Germanfest. And for some reason, when I was in high school,  there was a belly dancer troupe that performed on this itty bitty wood stage. Now I’m pretty sure that bratwurst and beer have nothing in common belly dancing beside the fact that they all…
