Happy Halloween!

If your anything like me then you'll love Halloween. Not only are all the trees showing the most amazing array of colours but it's an excuse to play fancy dress. This year it's going to be an extra special weekend for 2 reasons. Firstly I'm taking part in Thrill The World - a worldwide dance event for charity. I get to dress up as a zombie and dance the Thriller dance next to HMS Victory - awesome! Then secondly one of my good friends is off to Oz for a while so we are having a party and hoping she will be dressed as a zombie Kangeroo ( well it is halloween!!) LOL! I will post some pictures.
So back to the craftyness - I have been loving playing with glass and made up some of my new lampwork beads into the jewellery below.

I've also made some other new costume jewellery but that will have to wait til next week for photos. Have a lovely weekend, Elisa x

Keepsake Time Piece Necklaces

These cute little time pieces are some of the new additions that arrived this month.
So I had a bit of a spend up on Saturday at the Big Bead show mostly on new glass for the torch but got some beautiful beads as well. I have just booked yet another event for November so if you live in the Portsmouth Area and are after some unique Christmas gifts please see for details.

Autumn Tiara Bands

The Tiara bands above are made with lovely semi precious Peridot, Garnet and Amethyst. These lovely colours are fantastic rich jewel colours ideal for Autumn.
I've got no events this month so am looking forward to completing a couple of commissions and having some fun time playing and testing both fusing and lampworking glass. Yipee!
