These are some new bright creations

So our jewellery party went really well. The
people were lovely and we loved hearing all their opinions. We both made a pleasing amount so it eased our pockets at The Big Bead fair. I shopped til I dropped (quite literally - the bright lights are a killer!). With glass crystals, seed beads, semi precious in fact - whatever you wanted available, it was great!

I'm off to Wales for a week now - hiding away in a little cottage with my lovely boyfriend and his dog.
Have a great week and Happy Halloween!

Copper Earwires

The weekend was lovely, my cousin came to visit and we went to a gem of a pub that plays live jazz. I met new people who were very creative and we shared ideas (always good) and then baked a lovely chocolate cake which I managed to grab the last piece of yesterday with my tea. Bonus!

Yesterday was quite exciting for another reason too - my 1st seasonal veg box was delivered. I have the biggest pumpkin you've ever seen! Just as well I love pumpkin curry.

So on the creative front, well, I have my 1st jewellery party tomorrow with my friend which I'm excited about, we're crossing fingers we sell at least a few bits to cover some of our big bead show spending....... we know what we're like. Us, room full of the best beads England has to offer - dangerous!
I've also ventured into the world of making my own copper earwires. They are great, the copper is easy to work with and looks effective when hammered flat. I feel a collection coming on!

Woo I got to wear my fascinator at the weekend! My cousin looked beautiful. When the photos are out I'll post a pic of the wedding.

So from twisting crystals on my fascinator I thought I'd try with some labradorite chips and created a necklace. I'm pleased with it but finishing off such thick wire in a neat fashion is quite a challenge (hence that bit not pictured!). At least it's just for me so if I stab myself in the neck it's not so bad.......
