As usual I've gone months without sharing anything that I've been making. I don't know where the time seems to go! Anyway, this is a bit of a catch up on what I've been doing of late. Enjoy!

Orla Necklace:



This is about 16" in length (are are most of chunky necklaces), and is made using gorgeous chunky faceted beads. The flower parts are vintage and I've stuck a little Swarovski crystal in the centre for a little bit of sparkle. All of the findings are antique brass.

Grace Necklace:



I LOVE this necklace, it's one of my favourites I've made lately. Again this is 16" with antique brass findings. I love the roses, I have them in loads of colours and thin they're really pretty.

Nakita Necklace:



Continuing with the necklace theme, I like the opaque beads on this one, it's a bit less chunky than the first two. The colours are nicer in real life than in the photo.

Hanging Around Necklace:



I had a single tree stamping and didn't know what to do with it, so I ended up pairingit up with an owl charm I had. It swings freely which I quite like.

Abigail Necklace:



This one is 18" if I remember rightly, it's made using a vintage Swarovaski crystal octagon. It makes a lovely rainbow when the light hits it.

Mia Earrings:





I made these in two colours but the pastel ones are my favourites. They're quite basic but I think they work well. The beads are tensha ones which have flowers on them.

Finally a couple of wedding type things that I've been making. The first is a simple bridesmaid necklace with Swarovski pearls, and a little Swarovski crystal spacer bead (I've also made matching earrings), and then there is necklace which is again made with Swarovski crystals and pearls which I've linked up using eyepins. I've also made this in white (the one pictured is cream), oh, and of course I've made matching earrings & a bracelet. It looks much nicer in realy life, it really sparkles.

Boldly going where others have probably been.

Love the colour combinations you used.  My favorites are the first (brass x red) and second (brass x purple) ones, think I should try to get something in these combo next time I go bead-shopping!
