View Full Version : Just Introducing Myself

08-10-2004, 10:21 PM
Hello, all!

I'm new here, and just wanted to introduce myself. I can't believe that I just found Wet Canvas! :eek:

My name is Liz, and I live in Southern California. I make lampwork beads, and the finished jewelry. Actually, I used to be really into making jewelry about 10 years ago, and now am getting back into it. There are so many new things now! I love it! PMC?! I ordered myself some, and am going to play with that. It looks so yummy!!

Maybe I'll post some pictures when I get a bit more confident!

Ok, ok, enough chatter! We wanna' see the pictures! :evil:

Seriously (even tho I'm serious about the pics...;)), welcome to WAF! This is a great forum for just about any kind of wearable piece you can dream up. We have some ppl that do clothing design, lots of jewelry designers, I've seen great purses flying about hither and tither and don't even get me started on Li's silks!

Lots to see, and give a shout if you ever need anything! Enjoy!

Hey, Danielle!

I'm checking out your website. Gorgeous stuff!!! Now, that's the type of jewelry I really want to make! Lots of silver wire! And little charm-type things!

I have a wire bracelet that I made. I'll dig it out and post some pictures.

well hi there, liz, and welcome to the WAF! i just love this place, and i hope you will too. and yeah... we wanna see yer stuff!! c'mon, girl, show us the goods! :D

i took a class with kate mckinnon a week ago, and after seeing her fabulous eye candy with the pmc work she does, i'd really like to get into working with pmc. but for right now, i have to stay focused - too many distractions... so when you start mucking about with pmc, you absolutely must post pix here.

once again, welcome!!

Hi Liz and welcome to the forum, I'm sure you will enjoy it. There are often fun OT discussions on the Glass art forum too. Fiona

Hi! Welcome :)

Hi Liz - welcome to WC! I just wanted to say, don't be shy about posting pictures - we love eye candy of all kinds! And we are dying for some PMC pictures especially!!! I have a couple bags of the stuff and would love to make something with it but am afraid with all my distractions (namely my 3 year old) that it would dry out before I made something decent with it... but will get around to it soon I hope.

Have fun :)

Hello, Liz, welcome to WAF.

I'm with you on PMC; I took Kate's class, too, and her PMC work is so cool. Check her site at www.modernnymph.com (http://www.modernnymph.com) -- she's been working with huge Larry Brickman beads. Larry is a "dot guy," as he says; his warring states beads are TDF and they must weigh nearly a 1/4 pound each.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of you on the forum!

Hi Liz and welcome to Wearable Art. I'm glad you decided to join us.

There are 3 threads stickied at the top of the forum. The 'Forum Guidlines' (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=184411) give you an idea of how the forum is organized. We have one chat thread a day called 'Wear Its At' and we have one show and tell thread a day usually titled something like 'Show & Tell' or 'S & T'. both threads usually have the date as part of the title. There are also two threads with handy links, tutorials, suppliers and anything else someone thought would be useful, they are called 'Jewelry Links' (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=182831) and 'Fiber Arts Links' (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=182836). Please remember that all threads that are not about the creative process of producing wearable art go into the 'Wear Its At' thread.

Have fun exploring the forum. New ideas are only a click away.
