aww helena thats gorgeous it's so cheerful looking

Here are some earrings I made tonight, contrary to their appearance, they are actually silver coloured (damn that auto-enhance tool) just from a broken necklace.

and here is a necklace I made a while back, out of a piece of lace and a cloth flower, I then threaded some glass beads onto cotton and tied them through the middle, I usually tie it at the back with a white ribbon. (apologies for the bad picture, it's taken from a current picture of it)

I've just recently started making jewllery again (nothing I want to share just yet, but I will once it is all put together)

but I am wondering where I would aquire a bust to do work on? some of the designs I have dreamnt up require a shape to be held, especially while I am making it - suggestions? prices? anything would be appreciated, thanks!

I think the best thing to do would to google the type of thing you want, you might be able to find online shops or even just the price boundaries of busts... you could always look in craft/sewing shops in your area or (I'm not sure if they do this in america) advertisements in the local paper, if people have one's to sell etc, it's also likely you'd find something on ebay

soft, do you mean what you want to do for a living? or what you want to do with the pieces? I'm having a hard time figuring out at the moment exactly what I want to do with my passions in terms of a job.

I dunno what I wanna be when I grow up! (which is about..NOW)
