Mind Blowing Tips
What I love most about handmade crafts is the variety. There’s no such thing as one-size-fits-all, meaning there are endless possibilities for every person who tries their hand at making their own jewelry or home decor items. And that’s not even considering the types of jewelry or decor accessories, you can create either. Crafts like beads, woodworking, leather working, pottery, and jewelry are always popular because they are fun, eye-catching, and just make you feel good about yourself and your unique abilities.
I’ve been a big fan of woodworking since I was a child. At the time, woodworking was for boys. My dad was a carpenter and my mom was an aspiring painter. So they had to work double time because they couldn’t leave the house without bringing in one of their handcrafted creations. I think my mother was relieved when she found out I was into woodworking, too because she was so used to me going to the store and buying all her supplies.
As I grew up, my interest in handcrafted art started to deepen. I discovered that there were many different types of jewelry making and it seemed that the possibilities were endless. I still wasn’t aware of the fact that there were different kinds of jewelry making. All I really knew was that my mom made jewelry and I still loved it.
I was fortunate enough to grow up in a household that encouraging curiosity, innovation, and imagination. So, I guess it’s not surprising that I have a penchant for handcrafted items. I love anything that makes me go “wow.” If it’s beautiful to look at, that makes it even better. Crafts like jewelry making and woodworking are some of the most beautiful and creative kinds of handcrafts around today.
What I really enjoy is designing jewelry with metals like silver, gold, and copper. I have found that the metals bring out a different sort of beauty in the designs I create. When I make rings or bracelets with these materials, it creates a sense of beauty and richness in them that just isn’t seen in other types of jewelry. It seems to me that what the metals do is add depth and dimension to the designs.
If you ask me, I really like to work with silver or copper because they are so affordable and yet, so powerful. It’s amazing how the color of the metal can affect the appearance of jewelry making. Another thing that I really like about copper or silver is that it’s very versatile. You can use it for rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and so on. This allows me to be creative and let my imagination go wild when it comes to making jewelry.
I am very active and every day, I get up and move. Some days I’m up and down and some days I sit around the house doing nothing. One of the reasons why I love to make jewelry is that when I’m finished, it doesn’t feel like a work of art. With most jewelry making techniques, if you do it right, the jewelry will look perfect.
