Of course, all these sold already. She's including a lot of macrame and nautical knotting, which looks amazing.Everyone should consider what they already have in their bag of tricks that they can combine with this (and any other) project. Clearly she didn't need my tute to teach her anything! So there's fifteen of her hard-earned dollars down the drain...
That really is the question. Ideally you imagine what you might do with it before you get it. Or, look through inspiring jewelry (such as this pintrest collection) and think about what you have in your stash which could follow that pattern or ape those colors or something. Also, when you see interesting connections on line, you can take a minute to doodle them in an inspiration memo pad or just on your hand, or put that pic for later studying in an inspiration file you keep next to your keyboard or stapled to your forehead or whatever.Little by little you build up a repetoire of techniques as well as others you want to try, so when you go to your workspace and lay out all the odds and ends which you are lately interested in- next to your pad of doodles- something will pop out.
I don't know if you can see... so just in case I thought I'd show 50 examples. Well the reason is I just can't believe a jump ring won't come open at the slightest pressure. So I press them down to overlap, then twist to flip them so each end is putting a little pressure on the other. Did that make any sense? Ok, there's where a video would come in handy.
But I'm not saying this is the right way to do it! In fact, it certainly isn't according to everyone that talks like they know. But by not paying attention to anyone but me (which is to say, 'assuming I know more than the experts') I've found my own right and wrong way to do things. So nanny-nanny boo-boo.
