I’ve been wanting to put up pics of some jewellery I managed to sell last year. These all feature the paper beads I’ve been making for a while combined with other materials such as wire, wooden beads, seed and plastic beads, plastic crystal beads, and nylon thread. One is even made using guitar string.

I sold all of these for the prices marked so made a little bit of extra money that week. I even got a few extra orders for certain designs so I sold a few more of those. The best thing about this exercise was trying new designs and finding new ways to use the materials I had on hand.

Shiny and new

A lot has happened since my last post… way back before Christmas last year. In short, I’ve finished up my year’s internship in Samoa and have returned home for an extended break because there was a very real need to spend quality time with my family while making sure the rest of the plan is falling into place.

There is much to say about my time in Samoa, so I’ll keep that for a separate post.

No job is too small

Some people think working with family is a bad idea. Maybe those people pick the wrong family to work with. Working with AL and Dzal hasn’t been the best in terms of pay or stability but it has been some kinda fun!

Admittedly I don’t do a hell of a lot. We do a lot of print work,┬ámostly publications and graphics, with the odd cool random thing thrown in, and that keeps Dzal really busy since he’s the graphics dude. But every now and then we get some jobs where I can do some photography or scripting or something else that I’ve been able to get into. And more rarely we get a lovely artsy-craftsy project that gets us all going.
