Painted Scrabble Tiles

I love painting but rarely get enough time. I had these scrabble tiles knocking about and thought they would be perfect for tiny painting projects! Now I just have to make them into something, probably pendants but maybe dolls house art?

Rainbows!

Maybe its because spring is in the air, who knows. I have come over all excited about rainbow colours recently and have added these to the website although the necklace I have marked as out of stock because I love it so much I will have to keep it! I have to say I would  be more than happy to make some more though, I love the colours and it combines 2 of my favourite kinds of beads Рgorgeous swarovskis and teeny tiny seed beads.

Wedding Jewellery and Tiaras

I decided I would like to have a play with sparkly things so I have started compiling a wedding section on my website.

I have several pairs of earrings on there which I am very pleased with and a few tiaras. Its great working with the really pretty stuff like swarovskis and gorgeous gorgeous pearls. I still have to make some necklaces and bracelets but things are coming along and I am loving it!

I have also decided to have a go at wedding favours, I know how much my friend agonised over them when she got married so I thought it might be nice to make  something small which people might actually use afterwards. I am still adding things and making things but if anyoe would like to leave a comment on what is there already I would love to hear from you!

Unable to type much

as I have a sore thumb (boo hoo). So rather than two fingered typing I will just post photos. They are better than having to read me wittering anyway.

Firework Tiara

Was sat playing the other night, couldnt really think of anything to make and this just happened. I love the colours, and the fact they all stand straight up reminds me of fireworks shooting up into the air. Its a mix of freshwater pearl nuggets, glass faceted beads, czech firepolish crystals and swarovski crystals on pink wire with a silver plated alice band base.

My latest obsession

is knitting with wire. Its just lovely. Unfortunately its very hard to photograph. This is my first go, its 2 strands of 0.2 mm wire (one green, one gold) and tiny pearl seed beads knitted using 4mm needles. Its large enough for a chunky cuff bracelet.

See what I mean about the photo? It reminds me of mistletoe, the beads are just like berries and the green and gold is very christmassy. My friend described it as pretty chainmail.

I have also made a choker using thicker wire which makes it quite substantial. I havent measured it but its about 5 or 6cm tall and rather stiff. This is pink wire and amethyst chips, the clasp I made myself from silver plated wire. The photo shows the back so the clasp is on display.
