jewellery design to making step by step process













I have decided its time to grow up and produce a more serious blog, so I thought id blog on my work as I do seem to spend an inordinate amount of time on it. my magnus opus is to do some projects and show the design process through to the manufacturing process, and illustrate it with photos to show the transition, I may also do this with some paintings too, a bit ambitious but I think a worthy idea.

Ipad app for blogs

Apologies for random rant with poor spelling, I attribute that to children having my iPad and publishing blog before I had chance to edit. Any suggestions on best app foR blogging on iPad . http://www.gillcordiner.com

website design and help

well time has come to do a website .. i have been making jewellery for a year almost and the time had come to get my ass ingear and start selling, as my money is no bottomless pit,
so i thought id get a quote as one does,, $1000 thereabouts,, ouch thats on top of everything else i spent, tools metal stones etc etc etc,, so i hummed and hawed and hummed,,,,,
so my pal karen aka State of the Art
your one-stop art shop

PO Box 227, Kalamunda, WA 6076  sorry plug for karen,, but thats how you do all this on line malarky its getting your name everywhere by hook or by crook
so she did her own,, so me thinks karen did it by jove ill do it
webbuilding sites,, well there are plenty she used bounce.com.au my friend and webdesigner guy told me try wix. they have a more crwative interface,, whatever that means,, so thats where i went

things not to do publish befor your ready
consider your name
choose colour scheme stick to it
one font one size
dont get too funky with it
 find a pro to help
i traded a necklace for his wife for xmas for a few hours help, but 99% i did my self
its reeasonably easy and cheap, ive pspent 120 dollars for the year
so i did it
hard bits,, well photos, they are difficult and time consuming,, the listings are easy enough
blurb,, well i aint scared to chat so ok,, but get this no spell check aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh
