I can't believe how long it has been snce I've posted on here, I used to be about all the time. There are some great things here so I should remeber to check back more often... Anyway, these are a few things I've made lately, I won't list everything or I'd be here all day!

Big focal ring:



I made this ring using a vintage carved rose & a bigger antique brass filigree. These make a great focal point Smiley.

Carved Rose necklaces:







To continue the rose theme, I've made these necklaces in so many different colours I can't list them all. I really love them, they're quite delicate.

Lily cab earrings:



I really like these, originally I made them for my mum's birthday. I've also made other similar ones which I haven't got pictures of. These are made using swarovski pearl beads, lovely little antique brass filigrees, and lily cabs.

Vintage smoked rhinestone swallow necklace:





I LOVE this necklace. I didn't make it for myself to start with, but I loved it so much I kept it. It's made using a vintage smokey glass rhinestone and antique brass findings. This is supposed to be worn quite high up the neck, so in total it's only 15 inches.

Double strand necklaces:





These are also designed to be worn quite high up the neck. The lower layer is made using glass pearls. That's it for now I think Smiley.

Thanks Smiley. I used to make more kitsch plasticy stuff, but I'm enjoying being able to make things out of 'nicer' meaterials.
