Found it!! lost earring that is!!

Bizarrely, it was outside on the patio when I let the dog out for the second time this morning. I'm quite sure it wasn't there the first time I let her out, nor was it there yesterday, the day before, or the day before that!!

So where was it, and how did it get to be on the patio between 8am and 9am this morning?

My pink necklace is finished along with a matching bracelet and earrings, but not yet photographed. I finished it Saturday morning, wore it Saturday to go shopping with my sister, and when I got home I realised I'd lost an earring already!! Luckily I have a few beads left so can make another one to replace it.

I think I will make one more in black/gray/silver colours which will be quite versatile to go with different outfits, and then that will be it since the beads cost about £7 for each set! Plus I also need wire and findings! I might have a go at selling them on etsy or folksy, but need to check the quality and durability of them first. I'm not using expensive wire so need to make sure it won't tarnish or deteriorate. It's OK for myself if that happens since I can replace damaged bits, but that's not OK for selling. Selling is a big step forward!

Another one...

I'm making another necklace. It's similar in style to the blue one but it's pink. I'll post pictures when it's finished and when the weather is good enough to take some pictures. I'm not good at indoor photography so have to wait for a nice day to take pictures outside!

It's back!!!!!!


Monday nights are written off for the next 8 weeks because Spooks is back! Don't ring me, pop round, or expect any other form of social interaction from me between 9pm - 10pm. It just ain't gonna happen while Spooks is on!!

More jewellery

This time, freshwater pearls.

I did a course a few weeks ago to learn some wire wrapping techniques and some of the beads I used there were freshwater pearls, and I fell in love with them! This week was my cousins wedding and I decided that I absolutely HAD to have jewellery made from these gorgeous pearls. So, here it is! I made a necklace, bracelet and a pair of earrings, and true to form I finished making them in my hotel room on the morning of the wedding!!

I've been dabbling with making jewellery for a while now, I may have blogged about this before - I can't remember and am too lazy to go check!!

Anyway, my latest piece is inspired by a necklace I saw a friend wearing and I love it! It's my favourite piece that I've made myself so far! What do you think?

I started off with a bunch of beads and some wire, I've done all the wire wrapping myself too and made all the spiral end caps that are on some of the beads.

My next project is also now under way, it's going to be a necklace to wear to my cousins wedding next week!

(I'm actually rather proud of the photography too!)
