I hope you had a good ''Pasaka'' (my boss keeps saying that in every call he has had this morning). i spent mine in K.U supporting my best friend at Chess and Machakos :) it was interesting and i learned so much that i would need a full post to just talk about it.
Today's post i just wanted to tell a short story about how i started. I basically credit a lot of all the business i have started to the online search and results i have made on Google and YouTube, especially YouTube. I started with Ksh. 2000, yeah it was about that and i bought tools to start with that was Ksh. 450 and a few bags of beads and other jewelry requirements as i saw on YouTube like earring hooks.
This probably were my first, i actually used an old Cowrie shell Necklace my dad bought me that my friend had pulled and kinda destroyed but i kept all the beads that i collected and the sead beads i really can't remember if i bought or recycled from an old piece.
|Cowrie shells and seed beads|
on the far right i just remembered i bought those sea blue beads at a local shop and they were so few.
I also tried to be creative, it didn't work out as i wanted but at least i tried,
|I used two t shirts left overs from a previous craft activity|
....and also had successful trials, be informed, i sold most of this pieces and more, you can view Here...
|I used my mum's old Earrings that she had stopped wearing, it was a spoiled pair actually.|
|bought those red beads|
|this design was trending at the time so yes, i got one design right.|
and orders came in for this, some wanting them as long and others shorter.
|one of the bangle designs i did.|
I look back and am humbled by everyone that supported me from the start because believe you me i made a profit out of this shady pieces that right now probably belong in a bin.
so i didn't stop there, i actually made a lot so i will show you a few as you can look them up Here... or Here... and Here...
|this was inspired by an earring my boyfriend (then) had bought me and i pulled it off!|
|notice the colorless shambala beads, they were so trendy then|
|This was not a bad one, right?|
Thank you so much for stopping by...
