February 20, 2015


It was a crazy day and definitely spending time with Tanya, Beta & Circe's Circle was a highlight! Such an interesting topic, such a dynamic discussion! 


It was so great to spend time today listening to the wisdom of Jamie and Tanya. I feel filled with insight, actions and ideas. And a cheering section if I ever make it on Jeopardy!


From left to right:

  1. Made with my hands and some tools
  2. Made with tools
  3. Made with a special shaping tool and embellished because it was so much prettier. 
A lot of wire-workers can just shape stuff with their fingers but no way, not for me. I just don't have the dexterity. Tools for the win! I'm getting there… Still feels very amateurish but I'm learning.

Shannon, that was like the perfect moment you captured!!! I love it and had such a great time yesterday and yes, you could totally do Jeopardy and we'll be there cheering you on.

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

Yay! I'm so glad you both enjoyed and got a lot out of the call! It was a great experience. And lol, yes, absolutely you will have raving fans on Jeopardy!! And wow, that's a great picture of Tanya!

Suzie, it's so inspiring to see your jewellery. You have really thrown yourself in with a passion. You're doing awesome!

Shannon said...

Oh you got such a great picture of the Beta call Jamie! I am so impressed, it really capture the spirit of the day :)

omg Suzie, it's like you are using the scientific method for jewelery making! Maybe I'm just obsessed with that method these days. I love seeing the different jewelry through the different methods, and it sounds like you are really finding your feet which is the most important thing. Tools for the win!

Suzie Ridler said...

The call was absolutely amazing and I think everyone adored it!

Thank you and OMG Shannon, I hadn't thought about it but yet, the scientific method for jewellery, that works. Thank you, so glad you're like seeing my trials and tribulations of jewellery-making.

It's also so much like poetry too which always surprises me. When I make it, I feel like I am materializing a poem.

Suzie, I've been meaning to say that I got a big "zing" the last time you mentioned the relationship between beading and poetry. I think there's some magic there to pursue!

Suzie Ridler said...

Me too Jamie! I make the realization but then am not sure where to put it but I'm glad you felt the energy of that too. :)
