This is blakdove
, from my new journal that I'll use to post my jewelry from now on. Not a selling journal or anything, but just someplace to post my jewelry.
Secondly, since there are still about 20 minutes left of this week, I thought I'd say one more thing before this week's topic is over. I have a weird bias with my beadweaving: I don't use needles. Rather, I have a spool of cheap 36 guage wire that I tear pieces from and twist them tight to make needles. I first started doing it when I learned to beadweave for the first time -- I kept either breaking or losing my needles, but didn't want to suspend my beading long enough to wait to get new ones, so I just started using wire and it stuck. Anyone else do that, or am I just weird?
Hello! Once I get around to it, I'll be posting my jewelry creations on here.
