New Blog!


There is a now a new blog, dedicated to learning!   With the exquisite help from the amazingly talented Karen Valentine, I am launching a new blog called e-workshops.

This fun blog will deliver new adventures for you, adding to your current knowledge about jewelry making, or if you are new, what a great place to jump in and discover this amazing world.

My plan is to offer a variety of kits, tutorials, videos and on line classes, both by me, and blogging friends.  I will also offer tips, freebies, and a host of other offerings.

It is just getting started, but go check it out and let me know what you think.  You can hop back to my other blog, Riki Jewelry, by clicking that button anytime.

Please spread the word, post the button, and tell everyone!

I'm working on a fun, muti-item giveaway, so stay tuned.

Please leave me a comment, and let me know what you think.

And how about what you would like to learn about, any specific methods or projects you are hoping to see on here?

Thanks everyone.
Many hugs,

A wonderful idea!!!! I love reading book reviews. I never buy a book about jewelry making unless I read a blog review first.

Also, I'm itching to learn more about all sorts of cold connections, and more indepth details about soldering. All the books I have say 'do this such and such' but they don't explain why this process works better than another, if that makes sense.

And faux bone...I'm intrigued.

Oh boy Riki, Can't wait to see what kinds of e-workshops you come up with. This is a great idea, especially for folks that don't live near you.

Riki, congratulations on your new workshop blog! What great news to find here today. Your new site is beautifully created - an amazing collaboration between you and Karen. For one, I think pouches like the beautiful one you made for my Bead Soup would be a fantastic workshop. And more soldering. You'll have many ready and waiting fans. :-)

Hooray, Riki,
This is wonderful. I would like to learn more about elements of design and color.
I am really pleased.Maybe I can get back into jewelry making.

YAY Riki! Congratulations on your new blog. It's beautifully laid out. As you know I took your rhinestone soldering video workshop and I learned techniques I had never been exposed to. I would like to learn more about soldering and working with metal to form bezels or cuffs. I do hope to join you and Diane in Pismo. I hope it doesn't fill before I sign up.

You are a genius! Can't wait to get inspired Riki. Ciao Rita

Hey sweetie!!! I so missed seeing you while in San Luis! And I wanted to meet Maddie! We must do that! I want the girls to play together!

I had such a great class with Diana & loved visiting with she, sweet Dennis & Susan! I know you are anxious to be back with them although you did have a busy summer. I posted your new blog on my sidebar so hope others will come & check you out. Also, hope you'll stop by & check out some of my posts about my trip to Cali!!!! Sandy & I had a blast! I get to see Diane in a couple of weeks. JUST LOVE IT!!! HUGS!

How exciting for you! I can't wait to see what you will be offering! I was wishing I could learn how to make the hinged cuff bracelet. I just noticed it is available on etsy! Awesome!

Karen Valentine said...

That is a great idea to take the jewelry making fraternity to the next level...I mean the beginners like me who can learn so much from the workshops.

Hello Riki,

I think it would be awesome if you also take jewelry making as part of your e-workshops. I would be glad to follow and support you in any case. I am also making jewelries and you can check mine too.
