Don’t mean to bore you, but I’ve just figured out that, in looking for my tutorial files on Google Drive (where, happily, I discovered most of the tutorials that I had accumulated over the years, as I’ve previously mentioned), there’s a way to search for a particular file or kind of file. Nifty! It’s especially helpful since, for some odd reason, my tutorial files are not where I would have expected to find them and I can’t seem to always remember where they are hiding.
So, off I went, again in search of my Eni Oken tutorials. There they are! As I have mentioned in the past, Eni was my first teacher, and I have since learned that a lot of my e-friends have learned from her tutorials, as well. You can find Eni’s tutorials at https://enioken.com/ and https://www.etsy.com/shop/EniOken
After that, I went off to search again for Diane Karg Baron‘s tutorials. Found ’em! I got interested in reading about her, so I went to her website and found all sorts of goodies! You can find Diane’s tutorials at https://thetaoofwire.mykajabi.com/ She has some free ones, and the for-pay ones are very reasonably priced.
Then, I checked out Remy Heath‘s tutorials again. They’re there waiting for me! You can find her tutorials at http://www.studioheath.com/tutorials.php . While I was looking at the Remy files, I also discovered an assortment of ring tutorials from different artists that I will be exploring soon.
Meanwhile, I made a pile of bracelets for Christmas presents, and a couple of commissioned ones. Silly me! I forgot to take pictures. I need to make some more, and I have a necklace idea in my mind.
Oh, and I discovered dumortierite! It is so, so pretty! I was buying some lapis and moss agate beads, and, when the cashier put them in the bag with the dumortierite, it looked so much like the early morning ocean off the Outer Banks! I’ve been trying to capture that for so long…. maybe now I can figure out what to make now that I have the perfect colors.
