    Default Hello! Excited to Be Here!

    Good Morning!

    Thank you for accepting me to the group! I'm just posting a quick hello before I go back to checking on my kids' homeschooling activities!

    My name is Sami, and I started learning to make jewellery about 10 years ago. I kicked off with silversmithing at the time. Then my daughter came along, and I haven't had much time to do anything for about 8 years! Now that both kids are starting school, I'm back to learn again. I started at the beginning of the year (a pseudo New Year's resolution) and (finally) opened my copy of Wire Jewelry Masterclass. I've been going through a lot of the projects and getting some practice with wire work, which I'm enjoying. It's nice to be able to fit it in at home, without worrying about sharp objects and chemicals being around the kids.

    I've also been sorting out some space at home for a workbench. It's outside in our shed, so away from the kids. I'm really looking forward to the kids going back to school and being able to spend some time outside in the workshop. It's just not appealing in the dark after they've gone to bed!

    I'm sure I'll be back again to bombard you all with questions. In the meantime, this is the latest pendant I have been working on

    Thank you again for letting me join the group!

    It's a familiar pattern, isn't it?

    (Decided I couldn't be bothered waiting for them to spam the forum for a change, so pushed the button)

    They either give a random answer on quite a few old posts to get their number up so they can post a link or their first post is to welcome another new member.
    I find a bit of spam baiting passes the time when you’re bored but then I live a sad life!

    I also tend to check IP addresses - there's certain locations are more common than others for spam.
