- First and foremost - Denise Worden, photographer extraordinaire. See her work at www.imagine-foto.com. Denise applied her fabulous creativity in designing some of the photos, and then spent many hours beyond what she got paid for to produce the beautiful pictures that grace Blue Heron Jewelry.
By the way, Denise didn't do all the pictures. Hers are the pretty ones - headers, About page pics, and the classy product pictures. The yucky ones are mine, so don't blame her.
- I'll also give lots of credit to Weebly.com, even though I don't know a soul there. I researched a lot of hosting sites before I chose one. I am very happy with Weebly. Setup is easy, and they have lots of videos and how-tos for those areas that weren't intuitive to me.
Future Blog Posts
Check back frequently (wish I could say weekly, but I'm not sure if I'm disciplined enough to write every week) to learn about different aspects of jewelry making: tools and other equipment, gemstones, METALS, finishing techniques, new technology, etc.
As you might notice from my "resume" listed in the upper right corner under Author, I have been involved in many different types of work throughout my life. I'm now 65 years old, and there has never been an endeavor that has stimulated my excitement as much as making art from metal and rocks, using crude hammers and torches to create delicate and beautiful jewelry. If my eyesight will just hold up, I'll be doing this "work" at least another 35 years.
Thanks again, and check the store often for new products. All this writing and "webbing" has got me itching to make something!
