Finished items

After aIgot all that good stuff at the Bead Show earlier this year, i've FINALLY turned them into something - YAY!

After a looooong abcense (apologies), Stalker is back! Mainly becaue i've lost my job. Again. And can now afford the time to actually sit down and work at Stalker to try and bring some cash in.

And the delightful Jazzy Elizabet has featured one of Stalker's new items on her awesome blog: http://www.hivennn.blogspot.com/ She had over 1 million hits since April this year which i think we can all agree is pretty bloody awesome! And how cool does the skull bead necklace look?! Pretty awesome!

In my last post i promised a pic of the 'studio' at home, so here it is:

I think we can all agree that myself and Sam are not the tidiest of people! lol! Still, a workroom isn't supposed to be tidy so i feel no shame! Ha!Ha!

I'm such a slacker.....

Haven't posted in here for MONTHS - i'm such a slacker!! I will do better, i promise!

Getting some new beads this week and I WILL sit down and start making stuff again. Life has been throwing stuff at me left, right and centre so haven't had time to actually sit down and make anything. In fact, the work room as become a bomb site (pics to follow later) and I really must sort it out!

The Big Bead Show!!

Stalker went to http://www.ashdown.co.uk/LIBRARY/Thebigbeadshow/2007/index.asp
on saturday and it was goooood!! A bit over run with post-menopausal women all elbowing each other and shoving to to get the best spot at the all the stalls. Crazy!

Got some good stuff though. I'll post pictures later.

Bleurgh!!! :(

Ill, ill, ill........ :( Sore through, bad back, dodgy shoulder - will it never end?! I should be tucked up in bed with Danny's Girls of The Playboy Mansion boxset and a hot chocolate. Instead, I am within the dull grey walls of the office, desperately fighting for my job so I'm not made redundant :( I need more people to buy my stuff so I can get out of here!!

On a different note, have been considering a SAGE eving course. I could earn £200 a day as a freelance SAGE person. It would fund Stalker better than this job does and it would mean I could work less hours a week and work more on Stalker.

Still mulling it over.......

The Things to Do List

So, yesterday my brain went a bit mental and started thinking about all the tings I need to do to get Stalker going and making it work. Before I go totally mad, i thought i'd write them all down!!

  • Apply for a stall at the Truman Brewery - DONE!!!
  • Buy domain name of Stalker
  • Get Website sorted
  • Get a list of craft fairs for this year and see about stands at them all
  • Start asking local businesses about sale or return goods to see how it goes - DONE!!
  • Get more stuff listed online until I can afford a website too - DOING NOW!!
  • Look into part-time college courses in Silversmithing, clothes making and leather crafting
  • Spread the Stalker word online, in shop windows, ANYTHING
  • Trawl the charity shops for good, second hand jewellery for re-working
  • Get the hell out of working in an office before my brain compeletely turns to mush!!!

FINALLY got round to taking some photos of some of my finished jewellery:

These are earrings made with hallmarked sterling silver ear hooks, heart shaped glass foil beads and tibetan silver angel wings

Bead Examples

Just thought I'd add some examples of the beads I use. These are just a few of the beads I use at the moment. Most of them are glass crackle beads.

I like working with the crackle beads as they are multiple colours, not just one. They catch the light really well too.

I use alot of Tibetan Silver as well. In a way I prefer it to Sterling Silver. It's a slightly darker colour than the usual silver colour, but it give certain pieces of my jewellery a more tribal look.
