I decided that since Andrew was kind enough to make me a moderator I would tell everyone a little about myself.
I am an ADDICT....lol...addicted to learning, not drugs or alcohol. If something attracts my eye on the net, I have to find a way to make it. Now, that doesn't mean I spend my time copying what someone else makes, just that I have to figure out the concept behind it and design my own piece. I don't sell my work simply because that would mean I would have to make more than one piece, which I usually don't.
Right now I am working my way through chain maille designs. I have done a byzantine bracelet, and some Japanese weave earrings, some mobius flowers, and a 4 in 1 scalloped bracelet. I learned a celtic weave, but after making a couple of parts, I realized I didn't like it. There are others that I learned, but can't remember the names of.
I also bead dolls, and bead jewelry. I want to learn how to wire wrap a pendant properly, but haven't gotten to that yet.
Painting, drawing, crocheting, knitting, and anything that, as I said before, strikes my eye I have done. Of course all that I have mentioned are things that are self taught.
This is me and if you want more knowledge...my website is http://gammiebrat.blogspot.com/
Gammie, cause this is what my 6 grandchildren call me and brat, cause that's what I am.
I look forward to being active on this forum and getting to know everyone,
