First Paper Flower

I stayed up too late last night and watched a youtube video of Martha Stewart making paper flowers. I've been really into floral stuff since I joined etsy, so I was interested in trying it; perhaps get some resin or other coating and make tiny ones for necklaces. She was using all kinds of fancy supplies like crepe paper and floral tape and wrapped wire. I figured I could make a pretty decent one with the crappy supplies I already had.

I decided to practice with notebook paper:

Not as nice as Martha's, but I find it kind of charming. The notebook paper makes it look like something a junior high kid made for a crush... which I like for some reason. It's too big for jewelry, and I'm pretty sure anything significantly smaller would be a lot more difficult. Oh well. Kept me entertained for awhile.

First Post

Thanks for visiting my blog! I've had a livejournal account for a long time, but it's more of a personal journal. I wanted something I could use just show off my jewelry and give little updates for my friends and family. Blogger also appears to be the most popular choice for etsy users, and I'm hoping to meet some new people here.

My store is pretty small at the moment, but I hope to add more items as I create them. My newest creation was designed and assembled yesterday:

Thanks for looking! I hope to make more updates as I create more jewelry and do more interesting things.
