    I do. I used to sell it, but found it was quite a thankless task. Now I just do it as a hobby. I would really like to try resin jewellery and precious metal clay jewellery, but it would be difficult in my flat so I will have to wait until I move.

    Yep, hae made it for over 20 years, now moving away from jewellery and making other beaded items (pens, flowers etc) so that I have something different.

    The majority of jewellery that I make these days is either chainmaille or woven stuff.
  • I make some for myself - just basic stuff.

    I love using beads for home decorations and make some bits of jewellery, mostly for presents. SallyUK was trying to start a thread further down, maybe the two threads could be merged and we could have one for chattering in? I love seeing what others are making and sharing ideas.

    This is one present I made.

    I make all sorts of bits - been busy today with this:

    Made from the end of a manky old cake slice... I'm really pleased wtih how it turned out. It will go nicely with my fork bracelet (made by my brother in law years ago)...

    Finished this at the weekend.

    just a few odd bits and bobs that I want to keep hold of, popped onto a charm bracelet... I used to sell leather bags and accessories, so have a massive stash - might have to do something to get it down to a more manageable level...

  • I do, and now it's also my business. Not great money but fun to do :)

    As you know I have merged some threads already for that, but can also merge this one in too, but, it will jumble the posts up. Would you like me to take out the last couple of big posts here and then lock this thread so you can all chat on the one (then I can learn off you lot ;) )?
