I have been making jewellery from almost a year or so .I have been trying various things to make my jewelery more attractive ..In this process ,I learnt that by joining a few beads doesn't make jewelery stand out . There are some more things that we need to take care of before we make any stuff ..
1. Design : This is the most important part .A good design clearly stands out .Unique and distinctive design make it really attractive.
2. Color combination : Well ,this is what adds the little extra wow! factor to the handmade jewellery .A good color combination makes pieces really very appealing
3. Bead combination : One will be surprised when one tries makes jewellery with a perfect combination of different types of beads .Try combining pearls with glass or crystal bicones .You will be amazed with the look .This combination has been my favourite.
4. Extras : Ofcourse ,this is not mandatory to make the jewelery ,but if you add some metal spacer beads,bead caps , crystal rondelles etc definetly makes the jewelery really really attractive
Hope these tips are usefull .Try it and enjoy making jewelery ..I do love to make more and more of it !

I am a full time working mom .Running around every day ,busy with my work , busy with kids ,busy with house hold work .I never noticed how the time flew past .My baby was a cute ,as little as I can ever imagine .Just yesterday she was tiny little baby ,today I see her to a be 5 yr old girl .
Just like all moms ,I too became too busy with my day to day work ,I did not notice my little angel grow up .I was amazed to see my kiddo to be speaking , and running and doing things all by herself .I feel so guilty of not spending much time with her .
I know it was all in my hands ,to manage my time .My mistake I totally admit . I really wish I could turn the time behind a little and see my kid do things which passed away in a blink of an eye.
I wish I could get more time in a day ,to spend some time with people who form the most important part of my world.
I wish God had created days with more hours than just 24 hrs .. may be he too was a bit busy !!!..

I have been making only earrings and cards .I wanted to make something different for a change .
So I did this bracelet out of fresh water pearls . After quite a few attempts , I could get a good picture like this one
The speciality of this bracelet is that I have used crystal studded toggle clasps. I found that exclusive toggle clasps online .It was amazing find .That makes this bracelet more more attractive.
I have made a few more and still in process of getting a good picture of them.When I do get good pics ..I will share it here

I went to shop to buy a few beads from a local shop and I did see this person who made very nice ear shapes using the beadwires .Thought of making one too .. so immediately grabbed a gold wire from a shop nearby and started to make some shapes ..
I did not realise how hard it is .. The tension of wire was quite tough to make shapes ..
After a few days and weeks of practice ..I could create these pair of earring using the shapes
What do you guys think ??Not bad ..is it ?
hmm I say this came out good

I am Divvi , a working mom having some passion for art and craft . This is my one of my initial blogs .I just want to share about how I discovered the world of creative artisans - whom I call creators .
I must thank my good friend at work .She was the first one to introduce me to the art of making jewellery . She took me to a near by bead shop here in Melbourne. She showed me things - how to create new earrings.. I just addicted to it at once .
I started to research online and tried to learn as much as I can .I have found so many creative artists online .Their extensive talent is really amazing.Their imagination is just beyond description .They are so many inspiring artists around the world which I was never aware of .
They have just inspired me to have a small window where I can too show off my creations.
As a result of which ,I have opened my small online store where I have put up creations
http://Divvi.artfire.com is my online store.
Thanks to all those inspiring artists ..You guys are just wonderful!!
