First Time Blogger

Hi -

I'm Susan. This is all new to me, as I've never blogged before and am hesitant about what I'm doing, somewhat computer challenged until I do something for the first time and then I'm comfortable with it. This is also the first time that I've ever done a beading journal, which I find I'm really enjoying. I was right on time with my Sept, Oct, and Nov entries, but Dec got away from me with other things I had to do. I create jewelry, and actually each piece of my journal is a brooch. I had a jewelry party in my home for holiday gifts, and getting ready for that took a lot of time. Then, I had gotten some orders from the party and had to fill those. These aren't excuses, just an explanation. Finally, it's Jan and I'm half way through my Dec piece with great ideas for the Jan one. My pieces can  been seen on my web site http://www.mermaidsjewelz.com/gallery . Go to the last album on the page and click on it. 

A lot of my jewelry is actually bead embroidery but I've always called it sculptural beading. This is also the first time that I'm actually doing different embroidery stitch patterns. If you look at my jewelry, you'll see what I mean. 

Well. That's all for now.

Well, there are a lot of new bloggers in the project and I am one. Its a great way to express your thoughts.

Your jewelry and your BJP are wonderful. I'm stuck for something else to say. I just love them!

Congratulations and welcome to blogging, Susan!!!!! You did a great job posting... I hope we'll hear from you often.

Your three pins (brooches) are scrumptious! I especially love all the colors, textures and different elements in each one! That's an art, y'know, to put so many different things in one small pin, yet have it look pleasing and unified. You are doing it really successfully!!!!
