Lime and Soda with a Twist of Blackcurrant!

This is the other necklace with a Tania Grey lampwork bead. She called it Lime Twist and it is just amazing. This necklace also has loads of glass beads, Swarovski crystals and sterling silver spacer beads and findings.

Pretty Pastels

I recieved a beautiful lampwork bead made by Tania Grey and this is what I did with it. A necklace with small glass pearl beads, Swarovski crystals and sterling silver beads and findings.
A little bit of springtime for my blog!

Just made another necklace using a Tania Greay lampwork bead but haven't taken pictures yet. I've had some Laura Sparling beads for a while and still have no idea what to do with them! Think I'm getting closer to a breakthrough but until then I'll just stare at the them a bit more.

Return of the MoJo

My beading mojo buggered of for a holiday without me.....very inconsiderate. But never fear it has idea how long for though. A friend asked me to make her a bracelet and below is what I came up with. A double stranded bracelet with glass beads in various shades of green and brown, Swarovski crystals and some stunning sterling silver spacers, beads and toggle clasp.

Then, with beads left over and my mojo not leaving me alone......I made another one!!! This time using purple beads rather than brown and different sterling silver spacers.

Amethyst Sparkle

I love this necklace.....probably because it's my favourite gem and colour!

It's got loads of amethyst rounds, Swarovski crystals and sterling silver beads. But the amethyst drop I think makes this necklace. It's on my website and I hope it goes to a good home.

Advent Calender

I finally found one!! Got it from a newsagents on my way to work on Wednesday. I was so happy because I thought this would be the first year I didn't have one. So I got to work and caught up....12 little chocolates....heaven and a bit of a sugar rush!


Not only did I catch up, I overtook! I got home that night and carried on eating the little chocolates. I finished it about 10 minutes ago. I have no self control. But at least I ate them in order.
Maybe next year I shouldn't have one.

Nothing new on the website but I do have loads of orders at the moment. 4 for Xmas, 5 for after, a gift for my surprise Santa with the Portsmouth girlies and some other little things. Busy busy busy!

This is exciting but slightly scary......bring it on!

A Time To Hybernate

I was asked to make a bracelet with a hedgehog charm (not easy to find!) and autumn colour beads. This bracelet had a sterling silver hedgehog as a focal with glass flower and leaf beads, brown crackle beads, round wood beads and glass pearl beads all in various autumn colours. There are a few Swarovski crystals dotted around too.

The website is looking good, just need to wait for my domain that I bought months ago to be transferred and then it'll be up and running!

Construction site......

......of the virtual variety!
I've decided to take the plunge and set up my own website to sell my jewellery. At the moment I'm designing my site banner and making jewellery to sell. It's a big step and I'm not even sure if it'll work but it's worth a go.

On a more depressing note, it's 1st December and I don't have an advent callender. This is wrong and needs to be sorted......soon!
