i heard blogger is user-friendly even for the computer illiterate

Hi everyone!

I (barely) started a blog over at myspace (add me! but I just couldn't increase the font size! I know it's supposed to be easy but I had copied the code from one of those free myspace code sites, and it is 3 pages long. I couldn't figure out where to change the font to make the darned blog font legible...

Enough of my woes. Bottom line: Blogger is supposed to be super user-friendly. Let me test it to its limits.

It is strangely liberating to write under a pseudonym. Well, it's not really a pseudonym because it's my line of jewellery. But still, I sort of am representing just one side of me, and I will be able to write freely about my crafting, and just that. I started a few "life" blogs, but somehow never really got into it. I think this will be different, this will be a way for me to share one side of me, a quieter side, with a world (or at least a few people...?) who will know me just for this side of me.

I'm excited! Let me tell you about me. I am a student by day and fledgling jewellery (or jewelry, depending on where you're from!!) designer by night. My line, pequitobun, is named after my sweet little holland lop bunny. I focus on vintage materials, and this was borne out of a need to create, and yet recycle.

How I work: I like to focus on one or two key eye-catching pieces, set them on my pink leopard print felt, pick out a bunch of other things that might look good with them, move them around and around and around until I am satisfied with the arrangement, add some chains, switch up the metals (I love copper right now), hang them up, set them down, step 10 feet back, and finally, I might be pleased and turn in for a good night's satisfied sleep. It's addictive.

I know most designers have a "look". But I can't. I thought about it, but I love so many styles, and creating new shapes, I love colours, I love to match and clash, I love different metals, patinas, lucite, glass.... so, I think it'll just have to be lots of things that I love. No "look".

Ok, till next time, my invisible audience. Please feel free to email me at with comments, and especially if you would like to sign up for my mailing list!
