Todays creations and thoughts

I have been waiting for some pretty Czech seed beads to arrive, and today was the day they popped through the letter box. (About time too) This meant it's a day of creations. I started with the rose gold coloured pyramids which are such a pretty bead and combined them with the new Czech seed beads and cubic zirconias to come up with this.

After a coffee break I then got the lapis out and made what is my favourite out of todays 3 creations. I hope to incorporate this design into a necklace as I have far more bracelets than necklaces at the moment, but I did particularly like the way this turned out.

After another coffee break. (Yes you guessed it I do enjoy a cup of coffee) I got my lovely hot orange sun beads out along with some bronze filigree beads and came up with this. It has a really vintage feel to it. I have been working with more bronze and copper lately and I really like it. In fact after creating this last piece I went on to order yet more supplies (oops my bank card is straining again) with yet even more designs in mind.

Right that is me for today. I do wish this blogger thingy had a spell checker to check for all my typos though.


  1. Hi! Just stumbled upon you blog, and thought I'd tell you how wonderful your jewellery is :) I'd love to be able to make things like this, especially with lapis lazuli which is my favourite stone!

    Keep up the awesome :)

  2. Thank you very much indeed. I really appreciate your comments.

    Keep watching as I will have a new lapis bracelet ready by the end of the week. Lapis is such a beautiful colour.
