New beads

I've been working on this style of bead recently. I'm not entirely satisfied with the outcome but I think I am almost there and I'll post some more pics when I am! Loving the earthy tones though. 

These were the first beads I made in this style, although the pic isn't great I wanted to make more as I really like them.

Sneaky Peek

Here's a sneaky peek of some pieces I made for an article that will be published soon in Bead magazine.

I can't tell you much more at the moment but watch this space!

Polymer in Earrings

A few pieces of polymer clay used in earrings can make a really unique, special pair. 

I created the following earrings using a couple of beads made using upcycled techniques (see the following link:

The beads are around 16mm and quite large for earrings, so I made the little fan piece underneath to balance them out. 

The following earrings are simple slices of background-less cane dangled on a piece of wire with a little AB Swarovski bi-cone. Magic!

My final pair of earrings use slices of background-less cane but one slice is baked flat and turned into a connector whilst the other 2 slices are baked curved and used as dangles. I really like these. Right, I'm off to make some more background-less canes...

Hello Again!

I've been away for a while - again - and I'm bet you're wondering what crazy building project I'm undergoing now that has been keeping me away from creating.

Well I can now tell you it isn't building works that have been keeping me away, but a certain helpful kitty of mine. 

She is so adorable though
