Are you ready to make better art?


Once you've mastered the basics of design and technique, it's usually pretty natural to want to move on and start creating really show-stopping one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry.  This doesn't mean that if you start out as a bead stringer that you must necessarily move on to bead weaving or some other "more difficult" technique.  Rather, what I'm getting at is that eventually you will probably want to start doing something that really sets your jewelry apart from the thousands of other people who are making jewelry.

So how do you do that?  One obvious way is to create your own findings and components, make your own beads, charms, or pendants, or to develop some other sort of twist that you become known for.  There are so many different ways to add value to your work that I began to collect some posts written by artists who are much much smarter than I am when it comes to this topic.
