I’m a bit nervous about my first post here  My previous post was just a hello so you can’t really count that.  This is going to be a real, world changing post.  Or, come to think of it, it may not :)

I suppose you can’t really call my last post a post  It was just me saying hello and that was all so this is…my first post.  Perhaps I should write something fantastic.  Makes waves.  Makes you re think your whole perception of the world.

However, I don’t think I can do that.  Sorry to disappoint you but that could be in the next post.  I have to say that this article is, on the other hand, something I’ve noticed.  You go around and see loads of jewellery for adult women - there are shops full of it!  But women is only around 50% of the population and when you look out for jewellery for men, there’s hardly any compared to the amount there is for ladies.

However, it’s even more of an eye opener when you see the lack of choice for children.  If you are lucky enough to find some pieces for kids and look closely, the quality is not as good and almost like pieces of toys.

This is on the high street, though.

Online it’s a little better - there is at least places where you can buy stylish jewellery to give to your girl or boy.  And I do think that designers are realising that children actually want more than just beads on pieces of string - kids know what is good!

When it comes to the actual pieces in the jewellery, it’s thankfully not just cut down and shrunk womens jewellery.  They seem to understand that *shock* kids are different to adults and like different things!  Things that children enjoy.

I’m just hoping that high street shops will start to understand that just because people are young, doesn’t mean they are happy with tacky, low quality choices of jewellery.

Am I living in cloud cuckoo land?

Thanks for reading my rant - it’s appreciated.  I have a topic in mind for my next posting - and it’s not ranting on about children’s jewellery :)

Hello and many thanks for coming in to browse my first post in my brand new blog site.

I am delighted to own a spot that I can easily put down my opinions, strategies, inspiration and also just regular ideas!  Gone are the days of pen and paper for ones journal - today it is all electronic, baby!

So, who am I?  Well, I am a student in design and I also specialize in jewelry designing particularly in silver which I think is a very breathtaking, tactile material.

My idea would be to own a place where I am allowed to put info down and then store it for later use.  I often browse about the web and discover spots that hold awesome material which inspire me.  Now I am going to be storing the information and knowledge on these pages so we could get back to it later rather than lose it like I have before *cough*

I’m glad you came to look at the blog.  Any tips for me?  Let me know!  I’m always interested in new sites and eager to talk to other, similar people.

Thanks and all the best, M.

All the best, M.
