It''s time for another ride on the merry-go-round! Jump on and join a group of 8 artists/crafts-women as they link around the world and tell you a little about their lives in art and craft.
This month: How to care for your art - information for buyers.
My jewellery is mainly made out of silver plated and artistic wire. To enjoy it for as long as possible, it needs to be kept wrapped in tissue paper and/or sealed plastic bag, in a dry place, away from dust and humidity. The stones will not budge but the wire won't like getting wet, so avoid washing dishes and the likes while wearing it. Handmade jewellery is always a little more fragile, despite my taking huge care and many hours to make sure that all wire ends are secure, it is not as strong as machine made jewellery. Be aware, but ENJOY!!!
Here's a little extra bit, directly related to last month merry post, which was about trying something new... I dived into fabric and sewing, and managed to finish a piece I LOVE... And it's all thanks to this wonderful group of thought provoking, super friendly and supportive ladies!!! A huge thank you to you all, especially to Ruth, our guru!! :)
So here's my take on wire-wrapping and fabric:
Last but not least: I am already not very good at all at blogging... I apologise in advance, as I have a feeling it might get worse lol: We are expecting our first baby at the end of January, and he is already mushing up my brain!! So don't expect too much from me for a few months lol!!!:)
Thanks for reading! ;)
