I have been making jewelry for about 4 years. Mostly just with beads. I haven't gotten into anything any heavier. I have been struggling with my weight for about 6 years and figured it's time to get off my duff and do something about here I am. Mon, 20 Aug 2012 22:00:57 EST New & happy I found this team Hi. My name is SharJoy, In live in Western NY. I am just getting into jewelry making and my goal is to go to arts & craft shows with my jewelry to make some money. However, I know it will take a while to get good at it. <BR> <BR> I want to learn all I can about jewelry making and develop friendships with people who make jewelry. Most important, I need support losing weight. I am struggling right now. So here I am. Mon, 6 Aug 2012 07:34:01 EST Daily Chat Yes, I'm starting daily chat, because I don't like seeing "Inactive Team" when I come here. So, that will kill it for now. But yeah, come on folks, jump on in! Sat, 24 Dec 2011 12:56:27 EST Motivational Quotations My favorite motivational quotation is a Chinese proverb... <BR> <BR> Be not afraid of growing slowly; Be afraid of standing still. <BR> <BR> So true in so many aspects of life. A slow journey forward is still a journey forward. <BR> <BR> What quotation gets you right in the heart? <BR> Sun, 5 Jun 2011 03:28:19 EST June Challenge!!

I just finished out my semester at Columbia College Chicago, so I am a little behind. I'm studying photography there, but I just took a semester in jewelry for non-majors. I was so excited that the soldering torch was the first thing we got to learn about! :D I was so upset when the semester ended. I'm going to start building a collection of tools soon though, so I can keep on wo... Mon, 16 May 2011 17:11:23 EST A little about me! Hi, I'm Susie. I'm very new to jewelry making, starting with metal clay. Last year I watched a high school friend post daily pictures of her projects via facebook and decided it was time for me to get off my booty and give it a try. I've always been interested but either never found the time or the right classes. <BR> <BR> Luckily I found a PMC beginner class in a city only an hour away. I've only made a few pieces but I do lots of research. DH and I own our business and went thru a major ch... Mon, 16 May 2011 16:51:49 EST Just what I was looking for! I am very happy to see that there is a metalworking team. I've been making jewelry for about 5 years, mostly with wire and beads. For Christmas my husband signed me up for a metal working class and I simply fell in love. I'm currently in the process of setting up my workshop in the garage and making plans for selling the beauties I make. Good times, eh? <BR> <BR> As for the weight loss, I'm getting back with the program after a 6 month hiatus. Some bad juju hit last fall and kind of sen... Thu, 21 Apr 2011 16:20:02 EST dabbling w/ stuff I'm new to this team. I love love faceted gem stones but most of them are for looking at. I buy mixed parcels and then identify them by eye and then with different testing methods. I inherited my Great Uncles jewlry making tools as a teen. And started classes in fabrication and spin casting. I mainly work with silver but, have worked gold a few times. I have lapidary tools but have only used them to grind and polish inlay. I have kept very little of any jewelry I've made. I also have my... Wed, 9 Feb 2011 00:38:43 EST New here and to jewelry making Hi Nicole here from Utah! <BR> <BR> I just started making jewelry this past spring. I needed a hobby to get me through a stressful time and I absolutely love it! <BR> <BR> I have read that some of you order your stuf from Fire Mtn...I love their catalog and website! <BR> <BR> I mostly make necklaces, bracelets, ear rings, bookmarks and key chains so far. I am starting to learn more about wire working and would love to get into metal smithing...been looking for a class. <BR> <BR> We have... Mon, 24 Jan 2011 09:10:50 EST Just getting started on all fronts So glad to see this team. I am just getting started in my interest in making jewelry and would love to learn more. I just decided to give Spark another try in the New Year after a long break. Looking forward to losing some weight and making some jewelry. Thu, 13 Jan 2011 16:07:43 EST Completed projects The wide silver cuff bracelet featured on the top of our SparkTeam Page was the first piece of jewelry I silversmithed. I'm very proud of it. I'm in the process of learning various types of metalsmithing and chainmail jewelry. It's relaxing and takes me away from the everyday stresses. What do you make? Sun, 25 Apr 2010 12:47:25 EST
