    Thumbs up Lucy

    I am totally into Jewellery Maker at the moment - new addiction!



    I never liked Lucy on the Gems channels but OMG she is superb on JM. Really really lovely. To me, she's like the Angeline equivalent on Gems ie she can sell me anything! Consequently, I'm now surrounded by beads, thread, wire, boxes, kits .......................

    I've made 3 necklaces and 1 bracelet (in a week), shopped till I've dropped and have sore fingers and eyes! My wire work with a gizmo is "interesting" and I've yet to perfect the technique but I'm dreaming about beading/threading/wiring etc.

    My name is Meeshoo and Lucy has made me an addict!

    These are smashing Meesh, and without intent to patronise - well done! There's no turning back now you know, no doubt you can see now why I love this programme so much and still have not tired of it. I have to say that Carol get's my first vote every time, but Lucy is a really tight second. She drove me crackers on Gems, but this channel seems to be exactly right for her and I think she's played a major role in making it what it is. If it weren't for the blimmin' "what is it", "potato" (which seems to be gradually disappearing) they'd probably be head-to-head. What I like about Carol is first that she is totally crackers in the right way, always the same - full of beans and naturally funny, doesn't rely on the "in" TV programmes for her vocabulary and is never moody (I'm not for one minute saying that Lucy is either of the latter two).

    I only have a couple of whinges about JM and that's the endless "Chinese jade" - they must know by now what it is and to be honest always should have. I refuse to sell mine as "jade" as I know Brits expect nephrite when buying jade. I have to say "probably quartzite (a very lowly mineral) but not certain" and sell it as I would man-made, i.e. no claims as to what it is. I don't think calling it "Chinese jade" (people who don't watch JM will expect this to be nephrite from China) is anywhere good enough for sales in Britain. Another is findings - horrendously expensive, and generally unimaginitive, so no sale. Lastly, "shell" pearl, I really can't call these natural. Powdered shell reconstituted, reformed and dyed in a factory. Small things in the grand scheme and which I'm happy to accept given how much pleasure I get from the channel in general. xxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Arge I agree about the "Chinese Jade" and "shell" pearl but at least they put it in quote marks or tell you it's reconstituted. I have no intention of selling mine on so this isn't a worry for me but I understand your concerns.

    BTW I like Carol marginally better on this channel BUT she talks so fast that things get lost and even my little 'un commented on her speed! What I find absolutely patronising is a certain presenter (neither of the two mentioned here) constantly using what I can only describe as TOWIE language.

    Overall though I do like this channel but I can see unless you sell your creations, it'll become a very expensive hobby!

    I've just finished my first wirework necklace. I really enjoyed this but cut the beading thread too short so had to add some jump rings to make it fit! lol!
