New arrivals...

Just received my delivery of beautiful glass pearl beads from www.madcowbeads.com. Itching to get to work using them in some pieces of jewellery I have in mind. I think that they would make really pretty bracelets and necklaces used in a chainmaille shaggy loop. Combined with some metal charms they would look really effective. Sadly the kids are still on their Christmas holidays so no time during the day and too tired in the evening. May just have to sit and watch some tv whilst consuming the last of the Christmas choccies and cake....

And so it begins.....

So, it's the beginning of the new year and the beginning of joyero. Time to get my website up and running!  Having never had a website or a blog before this is all very alien to me. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it soon and before I know it it will be second nature.

Where do I start? This blog and website has started from a hobby and a love of sparky and shiney beads. As I have two young children spare time is a luxury and finding time to make jewellery isn't always a luxury I have but I spend most evenings surrounded by beads and findings. I am now trying to take it to the next level and turn this hobby into a small business. I suppose I should stop writing this blog and start getting on with it...
