Busy Busy!

As you all know I've been quite busy with commission's, Christmas gifts and general everyday living lately! Here are two necklaces I was given to create matching pairs of earrings for... it took a lot of looking at different beads and praying that they were the same but here's the outcome....

Tonight mark and me are off to Hull to see Kings of Leon perform, as a late birthday treat for me! Should be good!

New Addition

It's been a while since my last web update, or my last blog post for that matter! I have still been busy creating and it was my birthday at the weekend so I stayed away from the computer! There's a new bracelet that's been added to my website. I've named it 'Confused Heather' after the beads that I've used to make it. These were created by Tania from 'Tan of course'.

I've also been trying to get ready for Christmas, I'm dreading the thought of fighting my way through the crowds this weekend to get a bit of shopping done.... on second thoughts I may look to the internet!

Pink Princess

Here's a bead I just couldn't say no to! It's one of Laura Sparlings fantastic creations.... a bauble bead. I just fell in love when I saw it as its completely hollow which I just think is sooo clever! Laura did tell me how it was made but to be honest it didn't really sink in! All I know is that its very girly, pink and just gorgeous and I'm keeping the little blighter!!! Here's what I did with it!

Glass Beaded Bracelet- Commisions Galore!!!

Well with Christmas coming up I'm having plenty of commissions thrown at me, which is great! Some people just can't find what they're looking for and I love trying to help, although I always get a bit nervous as to whether I have created something they really like!

Here is my latest project, a purple and black beaded bracelet to match a necklace that my customer was desperate to have a 'set' for. This time I've used black cord as my base and wrapped around lots of beads! I like the finished result and think I shall be adapting this style in the future!

Yesterday I went into town for the first time since I left my job at Burtons and it felt really strange going back, but I was secretly very pleased not to have to be at work but able to shop instead! I picked up a beautiful new scarf and coat and did a spot of lunch! Oh I love having weekends off!
