About time I

updated this!! SO much been going on!
Alice, my eldest, finished preschool and promptly developed a sky high temperature. Fearing the dreaded pig flu I spent an anxious day dosing her up on Calpol etc. Luckily she was back to her crazy self the next day.
Had a stall at a local Summer Fair last Sunday and made £100 which is fab as am going away with boyf this weekend to the English Heritage Fesitval of History. Not seen him for 3 weeks as he's been working overtime - will have forgotten what he looks like LOL!!!
Made 2 sales off my MISI shop :D , my pirate charm bracelet and a scissor keep. Good to get some postive feedback for my work.
Got to go and take baby for her MMR so need to get ready to go out in the rain (WTF??? Isn't it meant to be summer???)

I got an award!!!!

Many thanks to Kat for nominating me for this award!!

I must pass this award on as the rules say - comment on this blog; cut and paste the award logo and use it on your own blog; nominate 5 to 10 blogs you feel show great attitude and gratitude; link to your nominees within your blog post; comment on their blogs to let them know they received the award; link back to the person who gave you the award to show your appreciation.

Just thought I would post some pics of my recent additions!
I loved making the Carnelian set which is the top 3 photos. The stones are such fantastic colours!!! I'm seriously tempted to keep it for myself :)
The aqua cuff bangle was an order resulting from a local church fair. Since I put a photo on Facebook I've had requests for them in all kinds of colours!
The bottom photo is a long necklace I have just made from Black Onyx and Amazonite. The green stones are a bit cooler green than Malachite and I think they look fab against the glossy black of the onyx nuggets.

Current projects include a matching set for a wedding........a pirate themed wedding!!!! Lots of pearls and black faceted beads, and I've found some fab Tibetan silver charms off Ebay - shells, keys, puffed hearts, skulls and skull & crossbones.

Tiger Tiger Burning Bright............

This is my newest creation, made last night. I used semi precious Tiger Eye beads and chips and an ace pendant. Also used Bali silver decorative beads and Tibetan silver bead caps/spacers. I think it looks pretty cool and has had some lovely feedback from my Twitter jewellery friends. You can find it on my Etsy shop here and it has free worldwide shipping.
According to a quick online search, Tiger Eye is meant to offer courage, energy and luck. It is traditionally given as a gift for a 9th wedding anniversary and historically Roman soldiers wore it for its all-seeing powers! It is said to relieve high blood pressure, and to help bronchial and kidney problems, athsma and psoriasis.
I really enjoyed creating this and hope it gets bought by a fantastic person :)
update 18/06 it did get bought by a fab person, and I have another on order!!

"Spring Daisy" - this was a commission piece for a friend. She loved the earrings and wanted a full set making, which I was only too happy to do!! First time I've done the dangles on the necklace but I think it's worked pretty well!!
