Went to jewelry class again this week and it was so much fun. 3 hours really fly by when you're enjoying yourself! Did I tell you all that almost everyone in my class is way older than me? I guess older ladies have more time on their hands. Except for one girl, I think she's still in high school and her mother enroll her in the class. Most students are regulars and they sign up so that they can use the tools and machines for their jewelry projects.So I guess it's like paying a studio fee to work there.
This week the instructor introdcued blades and saws into the process! I haven't tried it out yet since I was busy working on my ring. I did work with the flaming torch all by myself though!! O___O Less intimidated by it this week. I'm working on a silver ring that spells out 'love' with wire. Everyone came to look at it and kept complimenting my work. One older lady said I must have done this before, and I laughed and said yes I've worked with wire before, it was all self-taught though.
The next day I went out and got more jewelry making supplies and spent hours crafting that night ^___^ I've been making jewelry since I was a little girl, but it's the first time I'm taken an official jewelry making class. I think you truly love something when working on it doesn't feel like work at all! I spend hours thinking and drawing up designs on new things to make, and cannot wait get my hands on materials so I can start creating! I can craft for hours and not get bored.
I hope that you all have a chance to find your passion and find something that you truly love to do!
