Me? A Tutorial Writer...hhhmmm

I got some very exciting news the other day. I had posted pictures of some of my jewelry at an great web site "Jewelry" It is a place where artists and people interested in jewelry can share ideas, individual lessons, post pictures, write articles, etc. I was thrilled when I started getting compliments and votes from other members to turn some of my pieces into step by step tutorials. I did apply for teacher status and was accepted !!! Whew, wow, ok... a little bit of panic setting in. I have never done anything like this. I have been working on one tutorial for a ring for a few days now...It is a design of mine that was published several years ago as a step by step tutorial in the "Wire Artist Jeweller"magazine. ( and yes, I did spell it right ) I was the feature artist in that Nov 2004 issue. The magazine was instrumental in bringing wire art to the people...before this it was mostly well guarded secrets. I do have to give more credit to writers and editors, there is a lot that go into something like this. Things I never thought of like layout, lighting, and writing ...oh my!! So far things are comming along and I am feeling a little more comfortable with the process. I am hoping to be able to submit tomorrow. And after it has been checked over we will see just how well I really did..gulp. here is a pic of the ring and a link to my profile page and you can also get to the site itself from there if you would like to check it out. 35% off sale at my Etsy and Artfire shops.
