Favourite materials to work with and why

Favourite materials to work with.

This month the blog carnival from Jewelry Artisans Community is about our favourite materials and why we like to use them.

This is a hard question, my favourite materials to work with change all the time.
One day I work a lot with gemstomes, the other day it can be seed beads or just a bit of wire.
One day I’m in to wire wrapping and the other into bead weaving or working with leather cords.
I do love to change my materials every now and then or mix them together to see if that works and how far I can go.
I also like to try out some new items.

Now the Why?

Though I do work with copper, brass, bronze or black coloured metals I always go back to silver colours for my wire and findings.
Just say I’m a silver person.
Gold just doesn’t look right on me.
Maybe that’s why most of my jewelry are made in silver tones.

Charms and Findings


The colours of the beads and gemstones are various because I like most colours.
Except yellows, I do have a problem with yellow, so you won’t find many yellow stones or beads in my stash, but I do have a few like citrine of calcite.


I will add the links from our other JAC members when available,
so you can read what favourite matarials they have?

    It’s so hard to pick a favorite! Like you my favorites change, sometimes I’m in mood for wire, sometimes for beads. Isn’t it wonderful to have so many choices to pick from? 😀

      I have the same “luxery problem” I too love to have so many choices to pick from.
      I’m sorry you didn’t make it to join us this month, better luck next one. 🙂

    Wow, I’m amazed by the wonderful gemstones you have.
    I too love to work with gemstones and mainly silver coloured materials.

    Great post
