The Beginning

Well, you asked for it, and here it is. The official, Amber Dawn Jewelry blog. I so appreciate you coming by, and I hope you will be back for more.

I thought I would start off by giving you a peek into the "studio", also known as my kitchen table. Being that we currently live in a very small house, this is where the magic happens.
Normally, well, sometimes, all of this mess is contained in a 3 drawer container that stands in the dining room/kitchen area, but when it comes out, WATCH OUT!
Currently, I keep my finished jewelry individually packed in small ziplock baggies, and all together in a plastic Wal-Mart sack. I really hope this changes soon, but I haven't had any genius idea come to me with a better way.
I recently received a box of goodies from my aunt. It's a mixture of old jewelry that doesn't get worn, and some things that are broken, but fixable, or reusable.
Nothing makes me feel better about myself than to create a piece of jewelry from something that was once loved and worn by someone. This is a new project for me, but I can't wait to get started. Watch for these things in upcoming pieces.
And lastly, my personal "porn". Haha. I could spend hours flipping through these magazines and catalogs. They have everything a jewelry maker could ever want. Every kind of bead, finding, and even the lastest styles. They always spark my creative brain cell (yep, I believe there is only one).
I think that's it for today. Now you should add me to your Blogger, your Reader, your Facebook and definitely "heart" me on Etsy.  :)
