The One Reason I Looked Back

I used to dream about one day creating my own unique jewelry line. I used to bead with plastic Walmart beads and dream about soldering “the real stuff”. But I didn’t know how. So I sat and I dreamt. I wanted to play with fire. I wanted to melt things. I wanted to create unique stuff that I could only see in my head – no one else was making it.

I still dream that! But the one difference now is, I’ve since taught myself how to do those things. I stretched myself. I made mistakes. I burned my fingertips. I tried! I finally got the courage to jump in, both feet. No looking back!

In all honesty, I did look back, but for only one reason – the cost of my beginner’s supplies and tools. It was probably more than I should have spent. Knowing what I know now, there’s definitely some things I wouldn’t have wasted my precious hard earned money on.

I was a single mother at the time I started creating jewelry and I needed every single penny I earned from my 9-5. But I squirreled away a few dollars here and there and I finally had enough to buy some of the supplies for things I’d always wanted to try. I bought a small torch. I bought some silver. And some PMC. A very small package to start out! (I thought that stuff was pricey then, but now… !!)

Looking back 12 years ago, holy cow that seems like forever ago… I was so excited to get started. I’m still so excited when I get to work in my silver. When I started I was a single momma with a precious little son. Now I’m married with 3 more doll babies, all girls! I’m having the time of my life! Yet there’s so little time to create! I have to have a plan and every star has to align for momma to play in her silver. But when that happens, I’m free, my burdens are lifted when I light my torch. When I slice open a new pack of PMC… the possibilities are endless!

If by chance you feel how I felt when I started, excited but nervous to start and frankly a little lost. You’re not sure what you need, but you have a burning inside of you to create with silver… I can help point you to some great beginner tools and supplies, and give you some solid tips to get you started on a good footing.
