Today is the first day of my website "justlookpretty.com" and my blog being live on the internet.
My website is a work in progress...still learning about how to set up all this stuff. My blog is going to be my way of communicating to my followers...sharing my progress and keeping you up to date on my website. I am in a learning mode especially about photos on the web and how to make them look as real as the real product. I have not mastered that yet, but working on it. I will introduce my jewelry on my blog by posting pictures of my pieces as I complete them. I hope to improve on my photos as I get closer to putting my items up for sale.
My plan is to use my blog to introduce my jewelry...offer Specials and surprises. My desire is to inspire you with anticipation and excitement of what will be coming in the future.
I do crafts...I love to make all kinds of stuff. But my passion is " designing and making jewelry". I hope my blog helps me introduce you to a fun journey in Gemstones. I create and design all my jewely. I started doing jewelry in September 2008. I took classes to learn how to make all kinds of jewelry and became inspired with all that is availalbe to be creative and express oneself. I started buying Gemstones in 2008 at a store called Bali Bead in Rockwall.
Bali Bead has been in business for over 20 years and carries the very best of Gemstones and Beads. I went totally crazy buying beads...OMG...over the years I have created an inventory of many "one of a kind" beads. My goal is to someday have a website where I can display and sell my handmade jewelry.
Over the past few years I have made a lot of pieces mostly for myself and family. As I wore my pieces to work I would get requests for some of my jewelry. I created some very elegant custom pieces and sold four necklaces to a co-worker...who absolutely loves my jewelry. Very satisfying to know someone is enjoying something that you designed and made.
My Blog...Heyjude...is the introduction to my Website "Just Look Pretty" my Website is devoted to Handmade Jewelry. I also plan to add my 2 cents worth on what I think helps you to "Just Look Pretty"!
About me...I am a Yankee by Birth Texan by Choice. I have traveled to many places but lived in Texas for over 30 years and love it here. I am fortunate to have all my family in Texas too. I have nine grandchildren so it is extra special that they all live in Texas.
I love crafts...of all kinds. I started doing crafts back in the 80's when we didn't have the internet or digital cameras. As a child, I wanted to be a fashion designer, so being creative comes naturally.
