So I know I’ve been a bit distant recently (well, these past few months!) but I felt that I needed to take some space and sort myself out as it were. To cut a long story short, since starting my menopausal treatment, I have been all over the place. The positive though is that I’m not on a new HRT and I’m feeling positive, well and a little bit more ‘with it’! But lets not concentrate on that, I’ll be publishing a whole post about my experiences soon, once I know how to put it all into words…
What I do want to talk about though, is MAKING!
So, I’ve always been a creative person. I have a degree in photography, I love to paint, I can crochet, I used to be a dancer…all that sort of stuff. Well I recently decided to give jewellery making a go and I LOVE it. I haven’t made much stuff yet, more like getting the components and putting them together to create a final item, but I’ve decided to open an Etsy store and I’ve even sold some pieces! I’m so happy!
I’ve found that traditionally, when I start a new hobby, if it goes wrong within a day or two, I give up. But I’ve decided to not let that happen. Part of that plan was to create the Etsy shop. I’ve also enrolled myself on a jewellery silver smithing course (I start tonight!). I’m super excited and I can’t wait to get going on making pieces. I feel that starting a course is giving me some sort of purpose, and I feel like I’m going to be able to work on my skills and hone my energy into something new.

So please stay tuned as I’m going to start documenting my journey, hopefully it’ll be a success!
