Chowder's fault

I'm finally back online now that our new laptop charger has arrived. We were forced to buy a new one after the old one finally died after Chowder got to it and started chewing her way through it. We also found out she has done the same to Nick's Wii and DS cables so she's not in the good books at the moment.

So now that we're back online, we once again have lots to catch up on. Since I've had lots of time to not surf, I've been making lots of stuff instead.

First we have the Davina bracelet. I bought this lovely brass keyhole and thought it'd be a beautiful focal point in a piece of jewellery. So here it is with wood, freshwater pearl and opal aqua glass beads.

Then we have the Molly bracelet for lil princesses.
It's a selection of different beads in lovely bright rainbow colours.

This is the Leah necklace in pastels. Beautiful glass, wood and filigree beads
wire wrapped on a gold filled chain.

Leah again, this time in clears, lilacs and a striking black and pink lampwork bead.
All wire wrapped to a sterling chain.

And lastly, Frida earrings. Amethyst chips and aqua chalcedony quartz
wire wrapped to sterling silver hooks.

So, blah blah blah: Paper Halo, Folksy, Coriandr, Etsy & Dawanda.

Off to make a cuppa now. x

Blog neglect catch up

Apologies for the blog neglect. I've been moving things around between home and shop this week and it's meant that many jobs couldn't be completed because things were in other locations. Today I have finally managed to get the camera and the cable and the laptop in the same place at the same time so we have some catching up to do.

First there's my first accessory! The Darcy kilt pin brooch. Again, predictably, in some soft romantic shades of ivory, grey and pink.

Loads of different types of beads including glass pearls, crackled glass beads, silver plated filigree and Czech fire-polished glass, all attached to a kilt pin with silver plated pins. Together they create a really pretty little cluster of beads and the brooch looks so lovely on.

Then there are the Audrey earrings:

These are silver foil lined glass and crackled glass beads with a gold plated Swarovski rhinestone rondelle, on gold filled hooks.

Then the Esme earrings:

Wood, glass and gold plated filigree wire wrapped to gold filled hooks.

And finally the Sadie earrings:

Nice and simple, these are faceted aqua quartz briolettes wrapped in gold filled wire and hung off gold filled hooks.

So I've been a busy bee. It's been getting quieter at the shop in the past week or so, maybe people are going off on their jollies? But I'm using the time to get some Paper Halo things made and am really enjoying it.

Anyway, all the above are available in the usual shops: Paper Halo, Etsy, Dawanda and Folksy. And now also Coriandr!

Off to eat cake now. x
