Hi all! I haven't posted any new stuff for quite a while, so this is a long post. I've divided it into different kinds of jewellery to make it a little less messy.

Brooches





All of these are made from vintage plastic flower beads, which I've layered and glued together. The last one is my favourite, but I'm also really fond of the bright colours in the second one.

Bangles/Bracelets



The white one is new for me because before this I'd only over made thematic charm bracelets, not ones based on colour.

Rings (except there's just the one)

I keep using this colour combination. I even have a very similar ring with the same colours, only in different positions.

Earrings




The first ones are my favourite (and took the longest to make, too), but I'm also very fond of the lions too. I bought a lot of charms and got a pair of them and knew they had to be earrings.

Necklaces





I honestly don't know which one I like the best here. The coral beads in the first are so incredibly pretty in person. The fourth is made with beads my best friends bought me for my birthday last year, including some lovely Czech glass.

Well, that's it. I really shouldn't leave so much time between posts again.

I like those brooches, it's very creative that you can think of turning the beads into like these.

We see the throns of the others, but we cannot see the log of timber in our eyes.

I buy most of my stuff on etsy. To find the kind of beads I used in the brooches, search something like 'vintage plastic beads stackable'.
