    Hi Everyone I'm Jools and I love making stuff. I have an Etsy shop where I sell my craft and illustration items. I also draw and paint. I love trying out new craft and art techniques and applying by artwork to craft items and jewellery. Love to chat about ways of working with shrink plastic , if there's anyone here who uses it. Photos of some stuff I make. Jools x

    Help for Final Year Project

    Dear All, I am a current student at Nottingham Trent University working of my final year piece. I am a part time crafter and enjoy making jewellery in my spare time, however I have noticed that it is really hard to find specialised craft furniture in the current market. Crafting is definitely on the boom and there are many people that love to craft from home but don't have the space or equipment. Currently from my primary research I have realised that the current furniture offered doesn't include much storage or adjustable working space. Could you possibly answer the questions below to help me understand the workspaces of a full time crafter and a hobby crafter? If there is anything that you feel I have missed and haven't asked please do not hesitate to comment. Please share around as the more crafters who answer the better my research will be and the more practical the final product will be. Thank you and best wishes.

  17. Hello! I've recently starting running silversmithing workshops from my kitchen in SW London, helping people to make silver name tag necklaces. The first one was a great success, I was really pleased with the students' results. I've now got two more days booked in because people have said that they want to do them, but not sure how to go about filling the other slots. Any suggestions? This is a blog post about the first one: Wonderful workshop!

    Hello I'm new to this forum, and wanted to share some of my recent creations. I have had lots of fun creating cute beaded bookmarks. I love combining beads, charms and small polymer clay creations to make unique bookmarks. I've attached photos as thumbnails. Let me know what you think Kay xx
  19. Hello everyone! We are delighted to announce the winner of Make & Sell Jewellery's forum challenge for issue 58, the main theme of which was Valentine's Day. This romantic holiday inspired some beautiful entries and we've really enjoyed seeing them all. And the winner is Diane's Designs, who wowed us all with her lovely Venetian-style mask. Created after attending a wirework mask course by Rosanna who works as a bundle designer for Jewellery Maker, Diane says, "I think the intrigue of a mask fits well with the Valentine romance theme." Fashioned from pink and antique bronze wire, she then adorned her creation with genuine pearls for that final feminine touch. Congratulations Diane - don't forget to email your full name and address to melissa@aceville.co.uk so we can send out your prize. We are also launching a new type of challenge to all you designers out there. Show us your latest creations on the forum, or on our Facebook page and each month we'll select our favourite to win a prize. It can be inspired by the projects in Make & Sell Jewellery or your own unique design, so grab your tools and get making. Happy beading! Melissa Hyland Deputy Editor

  21. Hello everyone, It's time to announce the winner of the Make & Sell Jewellery forum challenge for issue 57 (January '14), which had the New Year as its main theme. Christmas can be a hectic time that doesn't leave a lot of spare time for beading, so we'd like to thank everyone who were able to send in their entries. There were some lovely glitzy designs, perfect for any party, and the winner is maillemanz with her gorgeous Shooting Star necklace. "I have wire wrapped lots of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystals with ball pins and added silver-plated chains to make this focal pendant. This can slide onto a cord with the sturdy jump ring at the back," she explains. We love the bright colours and the tail of trailing chains - well done, your beady goodie bag will be in the post soon. Don't forget, you can still enter our latest forum challenge for issue 58 (February '14), which is based around Valentine's Day, the perfect opportunity to create some romantic designs. You'll find it here at http://www.homecraftforums.com/topic/49955-make-sell-jewellery-issue-58-forum-challenge-closes-at-530pm-on-3rd-february-2014/ Happy beading! Melissa Hyland Deputy Editor

  24. Hello everyone, The forum challenge for issue 56 of Make & Sell Jewellery ended yesterday, and we are delighted to announce our new winner! The theme for this issue was Christmas and inspired some beautifully festive and glitzy entries. After much debating, we were finally able to make a decision - so it's congratulations to paperkate for her gorgeous necklace and matching bracelet. Created for herself to wear at a Christmas concert she is performing in, this beautiful set was created with gold and silver chain maille rings that are faceted all the way around. These were linked together to form chunky sparkling ropes and a smoky teardrop pendant adds the final touch to the necklace. So well done paperkate, and don't forget to email your full name and address to melissa@aceville.co.uk so we can send out your prize. We'd also like to thank everyone else who entered and to remind you that the new forum challenge for issue 57 - our New Year issue - is now open. Send in your entries to http://www.homecraftforums.com/topic/49841-make-sell-jewellery-issue-57-forum-challenge-closes-at-530pm-on-2nd-january-2014/. Have a lovely Christmas and happy beading!
