I started making jewellery about 5 years ago because I had managed to hoard loads of seed beads after buying my eldest daughter a loom one xmas . This is when I started looking at lots of different types of beads including glass and magnetic beads I found out that the magnetic ones came in a variety of colours which I had never seen before so I started making magnetic jewellery along with lots of varieties of jewellery. I started at the Country market about 3 years ago and realised that there was lots of other crafts that I was interested in this is when I started to show an interest in Encaustic Art (wax Painting with an iron) I had had the set for at least 4 years and taken it out of the box a few times but realised I could use it to make a start on some card designs this lead to putting the designs on notebooks coasters and framing the larger pieces I have always loved photography so for one of my big birthdays was bought a nikon D40x well this started the idea of taking great photos and putting these designs also onto cards etc. I have done a lot of travelling in and around Europe so a lot of the pictures I take are on my travels.
Unfortunately I dropped the camera on holiday so didnt take any pictures for about 6 months but I was fortunate to get The D80 for christmas this year so will be back in the game again I love taking pictures but wouls love to have more knowledge about my camera its quite complicated
