And here's how I started crafting:
About 5 years ago, I stumbled quite by accident upon an evening silversmithing class, which was taking place at the college I was teaching Foreign Languages at the time. I joined, and never looked back... I have been making jewellery ever since.
The class was a revelation for me: I never really 'crafted' before, and I found making things with my hands immensely enjoyable, and my brain, which totally craved learning new skills (instead of teaching them!!), was swimming in pure bliss, in a kinesthetic environment...I threw myself into it, made tons of mistakes, enjoyed then the 'making' more than the 'designing', now the opposite, and I always wanted to know more, make more, change styles...So I taught myself wire wrapping and beading techniques, recently tried chainmaille, and plan to explore PMC in the near future... I'm sure, one day, my craft will come together... :D
Here are a few of my creations...
