I'm Back

Hi everyone.  It has been awhile since the last post.  Things have pretty much settled down now and I will try to post more often.  Some folks have already heard that statement before.

Want to take a moment to welcome new members to the blog.  Thanks for your interest.

The big news at the moment id after months of waiting, a tutorial I authored has finally been published at a site called Wubber's University.  The site has loads of free tutorials covering all sorts of jewelry making techniques,

I will warn anyone interested that the site has had its troubles getting set up and you may experience some problems.  You have to go thru the log in process and in the past that has been problematical. But they are working diligently trying to make it user friendly.  I have been in communication with the powers that be there and they have taken notice of my displeasure.

I think I posted a similar photo of these Faux Bone leaves before.  This will be the next tutorial I will do for Wubber's U, once I'm sure the site is user friendly.  These are very easy to do.  I am changing the procedure for doing these and similar for the tutorial.  The coloring is as usual, done with alcohol inks.  These two shown and others I've done are long gone, sold!  These have pin backs attached, while others have bails or jump rings for necklaces,  Smaller sizes have ear wires attached.  The decoration on the above are Swarovski half drilled pearls.  They are GLUED on wire posts.  Oh my, I've said the bad word!  I have to remember political correctness and say Industrial Adhesive Medium! LOL!  Anyway, I'm changing the application method and using a different type of IAM.

All for now.  Leave a comment, if you like, or dislike for that matter.  I know it is a hassle to jump thru the hoops to leave a comment, but it can't be helped.  Bye!
