So I put together this necklace yesterday and was thinking of a name for it and the name "The Black Rock" popped into my brain. Still can't believe how completely fitting it is! Or I may just be a complete fangirl
Being a rather avid jewellery maker myself, I know the pain that comes with finding out that you've got bulky excesses of certain kinds of beads or findings or jewellery supplies in general. What about a swap where fellow beaders/jewellery makers offer what excess jewellery supplies they have so that everyone can get rid of what they have too much of in exchange for something different? This would probably be an ongoing type of swap.
So I tried to make my first batch of resin the other day and it's hardened and everything, but not cured properly... AKA still mildly sticky.. and it won't dry properly because of the humidity in the air right now. It's basically humid all year round when I live so.. any suggestions on how to make the resin cure fully so its not sticky? If not, what kind of varnish/enamel spray would be the best to use to seal it and where can I get it online or otherwise?
Just wondering.. would anyone know where to get some spray-on varnish or enamel sealer for resin work? In christchurch or any nation-wide brands? I'm having some problems getting my resin to cure properly..
I just started up my website selling jewellery about 2 months ago and I've gotten a few sales, but not as many as I'd like. Is there anything that I should improve on? Or anything that I should clarify? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated
Well, I don't actually live in Christchurch, but I study there, so everytime I'm there its hell trying to find shops which sell charms, much less charms that I'm looking for... does anyone know where to get these charms in christchurch or where I can get them online? Preferably a new zealand site...
HELP! I bought these absolutely gorgeous Swarovski crystal beads the other time, but they come with an odd bead casing and I'm not really sure how to use them at all. Can someone tell me what exactly they're for? The four little grooves are holes in the metal casing...
