I just have to say the 3 girls that attended the workshop made some beautiful bracelets and considering it was their first time you'd be surprised at the results. I'll have to upload the pics for you next week. So if your in Old Portsmouth this weekend or Gunwharf then pop into Square Tower and say hello! Have a great weekend, E x

I had to spend a few nights in central London for work but creativity has crept back in this week as I had Monday and Tuesday to work on some ideas. Above is Tamzin earring and bracelet set, this with the Krista earrings in Ernite below our part of the wedding jewellery classic collection I've been working on.

This week has been great I've been finding ideas everywhere - supermarket, walking down the street, other people, you name it but there just isn't enough time to put it all in practice. Saying that I have had a productive week you wouldn't think I'm working full time as well. Ok so you just know what a jewellery nerd I am - well I'm proud!
I got my fused glass back and spent Tuesday evening armed with serious glue. I was particularly pleased with my twistie pendant (I made the twisties other week with Carl).

So it started well but by the end of the evening my voice was getting more and more croaky. I then made it into the studio Saturday and did make some new funky fused glass pieces. Can't wait to see how they come out of the kiln....that will be next weeks treat.

As it was sunny quite a lot this week I took a couple of walks around the lake in my lunch hours and found time to take pictures of my fused glass pendants. The 2 below are my favourites.

I've had soo many ideas buzzing around my head I'm pleased to have my diary to hand to write list upon note to try to keep me on track.
So first of all - I thought hey what is this video malarky about so above is a little clip of Freya the tiara, as it was sunny for the first time in ages I thought why not let her twinkle!
This week has been great. I had a one to one lesson lampworking with Carl Martin at my hothead. We explored twisties, hearts and flowers. Was just what I needed to get me all enthused again and filled me full of new possibilities. So watch this space for pics!
I shopped a little re stocking on tiara bases and boxes also a whole new selection of semi precious beads to play with. Probably shopped a bit too much but haven't had a big bead spend up for a while so don't feel too guilty and my postman is really friendly so that helps when all the little parcels start to arrive - hee early Chrimbo!
As you already know if you've read my blog before I am rubbish when it comes to the admin side of things. So this week I set myself a little challenge and have been trying to add 2 new items to my Etsy shop everyday to try and get up to date again. So far so good so go have a nose at all the new stuff!! www.elisaloves.etsy.com
So it's the weekend again, have a great 1! E x

Below is a picture of me modelling the fascinator with Clint at the wedding.
I'm sure you can believe that I still haven't fired the copper clay creations I made last week although managed to take a picture. At least they are getting a good drying! I personally didn't get on so well with this stuff, I found it messy and it dried out really quick. Silver Clay was soo much easier to use, I guess you get what you pay for hey as copper comes in at under half the price. The pieces I've made below have used some lovely stamps I bought on etsy and some stolen from my card making box.

Wednesday I went round to see a crafty bud after work and the mini top hat got created! This is for me to wear at my cousin's wedding later in September. I am quite please with how it has come out and luckily the black ribbon does well in hiding the wire wrapping involved in keeping the feathers and crystals upright.
So it is Bank Holiday weekend for me so an extra day of fun, who knows what it might bring! x

From the moment I got back it was all go, Poppyfields Design and I had a jewellery party on Friday night then I was back in the studio Saturday for a day of fused glass jewellery. In between eating, working and trying to get through the festival washing pile I finally stuck some bails and wire wrapped the ground pendants - the results are below.

I'm off to Germany for a short break with some of my favourite people so it's set to be a great time. Live music, camping and cold beer!
See you when I get back, have fun! E
