Back To The Beginning
I recently found a box filled with my jewelry making history! It's filled with hobby rubber, which my sister and I called "klippenmaakspul" (clip make stuff). We used to spend hours making earrings necklaces and hair clips with this stuff when I was little.
I love how everything was still in the battered old shoebox that my sister and I covered in random stickers.
Everything was still in there, even some half finished projects, like this (awful!!) hair clip. I am glad I can say that my jewelry making skills have improved somewhat ;)
The instruction booklets (incl. cheesy 80's pictures) were still there too. Maybe I should try to make some of this liquorice sometime?
It's great to see all this again. It really is what got me started with making jewelry, so in a way, it was the start of my future! How did you get started making the things you make?
