So where did Spring go to? Up here in Nottingham we seem to have escaped the worst of the dreadful weather that has been battering some parts of the UK today. Although, it has been a pretty awful day with blustery showers and the wind did wake me several times during the night. I hope everyone is safe and sound and that the weather hasn't caused you too many problems.
Due to the yucky weather I decided to keep warm and dry and do some making today!!
The first is a bracelet made with some gorgeous beads I snatched from my mate Caroline's (Crafted Gems) blog before they had a chance to make it to her website!!
The second bracelet is very similar to one I made a few weeks ago, for myself. I have had so many comments about it I thought I would do another one to try and sell. It's using some of Caroline's lovely beads again and quite a bit of Indian silver.
The next one is a bracelet using some beads made by Mike Poole of Tillerman Beads http://www.tillerman.co.uk/ I've mixed them with some light amethyst and aquamarine Swarovski bicones and a bit of silver.
The last bracelet is made from some beads the lovely Caroline sent to me as a challenge!! These are so outside of my comfort zone!! She sent me the round beads with my birthday gift, but think she'd forgotten that I already possessed the pillows - or did she? I hope I've done a good job with them. I've teamed them with some fire opal Swarovski bicones.
The last pictures are of two necklaces that I've put together using some lovely fimo focals I bought from the lovely Tammy. I've had them for a while, but as soon as I purchased a big bag of turquoise mix beads from The Bead Shop http://www.mailorder-beads.co.uk/ I knew how to use them.
Did you notice my newest addition, my SRAJD logo and membership number, I finally received it today and am so chuffed.
