New Listing on Etsy!

I have just listed this bracelet in my Etsy shop. The focal is made by me, the "frame" beads are Clare Scott's. The wirework and beadweaving is all my own, oh and so is the toggle bead. I hope you like it!


I can't torch at the moment, for ventilation and pain in the a** gas reasons. I'm going to have to go onto bulk fuel sometime in the new year, buyt until then, what's a creative gal to do?

Well, I have resolved to learn beadweaving and wirework, so that I can make more jewellery from my own beads! And I have found that I rather enjoy beadweaving, It's quite therapeutic really :-) I recently made these following a tutorial from Lynn Davey (currently available in this listing) The sparkly crystals are Swarovski!

Then there was a challenge on Frit happens, so I learned Tubular Peyote stitch and made a Cellini Spiral tube bead, which then demanded to be turned into an icicle!

What fun!
