I joined Steemit last year in September. My first post was like most of us an introduction. After my introduction, I posted about an Indonesia layer cake "Spekkoek" which took me few hours to make it. A very delicious cake :-). For all that work I received 4 cents..... So I decided not to continue because I thought I was just wasting my time for 4 cents. My hus-
band (@tarekadam) kept telling me how much he earned after every post in the hope I would continue. But I refused to listen to him. But I also didn't know what to post about.
Three months ago I gave it another try and I suddenly had a brilliant idea :-D
I wanted to make Steemit jewellery! So I told my husband about my idea. He wasn't really enthusiastic about the idea. But I asked him if he could print out my design. I told him how I want it to look and how big. So he printed out for me.
I was a bit nervous posting it, since Steemit is not Facebook where you share with people you know in real life. With Steemit, you haven't met or seen most of the people. But I was surprised that there were people upvoting my steemit earrings :-). On top of that I received so many nice comments and @ramta, who upvoted me and commented, wanted to buy my Steemit earrings :-). He lives in Norway, So I sent the earrings to him. I am not sure if he received them. @ramta, if you read this, I would like to know if you received the earrings? I hope you did.
After the first earrings I wanted to make another pair of earrings but this time more extravagant earrings. I asked my husband again, if he could print out another pair of Steemit earrings again. He asked me: "Are you sure? I'm not sure if it would be something, again with steemit logo." But I refused to listen to him :-D.
After 2 pair of earrings I wanted to make Steemit bracelets in combination with a golden chain. So, I asked my husband again, but this time he refused to make them for me :-(. He wanted me to learn 3D designing myself. So I will not disturb him with my 3d steemit ideas :-D. First I was angry, because I was not interested in 3D designing at all! I even did not understand why he bought a 3D printer. I told him he is wasting his money.
I kept forcing him to printing my designs for me, but it didn't work :-D. So I had to learn the 3D program Fusion 360 myself. He taught me some basic things like Extrude, Offset and how to import to Cura, a program that you need when you want to print out the design(s). But of course I had many many many questions besides Extrude and Offset. He refused to help me! Can you imagine? I tell you, I was pissed! He said I have to figure it out myself because he figured everything out himself by learning from Youtube and Google. So I was first forced to learn Fusion 360. Later on, I enjoyed 3D designing. I guess I have to thank him, because if he would help me all the time, I would not be this far with 3D designing. This was my first time I designed(same design, but selfmade) and printed out myself. :-)
The second bracelet I made, was more masculine.
I was watching a Bollywood movie "Devdas" and I suddenly was inspired by the beautiful hand jewellery. So I quickly opened Fusion 360 and printed out the same round Steemit logo and a ring in black and combined it with beads.
There was a guy who commented on my post and asked me when I make a Steemit bracelet for men. After I posted I noticed men don't really like (to wear) jewellery :-D
Here you see Steemit bangles in Pink, Black and White. I made the pictures in my laundry room.
After earrings, bracelets and bangles I wanted to make something else. Steemit shoe accessories
Steemit key to Steemfest
Steemit cat ear headbands
Steemit tie in jointed sections
Steemit chocolate in Steemit chocolate box
Steemit Hexagon Bubble Blower
Steemit mosaic belt
Steemit (sun) glasses. This was my MOST complicated design and my #2 on my 3D wish list to-do's.
Steemit pocket mirror
My #1 on my 3D wish list is a secret. It will come one day hopefully :-). It is a very complicated design and even my husband, the 3D guru, can not make it. I'm gonna tell you this: He wasn't even able to make the (sun)glasses and pocket mirror....sssshhhhh, don't tell him ok? :-D. I am very proud of myself that I have made all these designs myself( except the 2 pair of earrings that my husband did on Fusion 360). I guess I have to take back what I once said to my husband, that he is wasting his money buying a 3D printer. For now, I want to show you my other talent which is Fashion designing/sewing. I went to Fashion school, so I know more about fashion designing than 3D designing. I will post more about my sewing designs and hope you will like them as much as my 3D designs :-).
