Well that went pretty well I think.
I had my workshop for Ramsey Crafters this morning.  I had everyone make a simple pendant with a spiral to hold the bead on the wire, a twisty vine bracelet and we finished up by just stringing beads on memory wire to make simple beaded bracelets.  Everyone managed to make something wearable which I think classes as a total win.

I’ve decided I’m going to use the pieces I made for a giveaway on my <a href=”https://www.facebook.com/chainmailkitten“>Facebook page</a>.  It has quite a few likes now so I thought it would be fun to try one of those “100 likes” things.  I wonder how long it will take to get the extra likes 🙂

Card making

That was a really fun morning.  Edna had done a fabulous job of putting together little kits so we could launch straight in to assembling our first cards.

This was mine.  I think it worked pretty well.  If only all bees had so many flowers to choose from!

Then we were let loose to experiment both with things Edna had prepared and with other bits and pieces the rest of us had brought along.

I came up with this design featuring blue tentacles and falling leaves.  I’m not sure what I’ll do with it, but I really like it 🙂

I definitely have to get working on what to do for next time, everyone seemed to like the idea of bracelets so I’ll start with those and see what we end up with.

Ramsey Crafters

It’s the first proper meeting of Ramsey Crafters today.  I hoping we get a few new faces coming along to join us and it’s not just the five of us who started the group, but even if it is it will be fun to get together and make something lovely.

Edna is going to show us some card making techniques today, I’ve made a few cards in the past but it’s not something I’m especially good at so I’m looking forward to learning a bit more about how it should be done.

It’s my turn for a demo next time, it’s going to be something jewellery related but I really haven’t decided quite what to do as yet.  I think I need to have a rummage through all my beads and findings and see what I have available.  It doesn’t want to be anything too tricky since we only have a couple of hours, but it does want to be something nice.   I’ll probably take along a load of random bits and pieces so people can have a play if they get finished quickly as well.
