1  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Crafty shops in Brighton on: August 14, 2008 07:25:28 AM
I will be visiting Brighton next weekend. I'll be staying in Hove.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend some interesting craft shops especially bead shops and wool shops. I am trying to get knitting again.

Might go to Winchester too.

2  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / Trip to England and Wales this summer on: April 22, 2007 05:55:09 AM
My husband  & I are going to go on a driving holiday this summer (end May/start of June) to Wales and England. We are planning to go to Liverpool, Chester, Bath, Sheffield (maybe), Derby, Shrewsbury(maybe), Hay on Wye among other places. We will be entering and leaving via Holyhead.

Any recommendations for good craft/bead shops in/near these places or in North Wales?

Any crafty happenings that I shouldn't miss?

Thanks Smiley
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Garnet, rose quartz and pearl wire wrap pendant on: February 19, 2007 11:03:40 AM
I made this a while back. It was the third or fourth wrap pendant I made and I was delighted with the way it turned out. It has garnet, rose quartz, rock crystal, glass crystal and pearls in it and fluorite and sterling silver.

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Gift ideas for a friend. on: December 08, 2006 07:00:51 AM
I have a friend who is very hard to buy for/make for. I have never heard her praise any gift she has gotten from ANYONE except from her partner when she tells him what to buy. Not only that she's make it plain she is not overwhelmed with the presents she gets (at length). I made her a bracelet last Xmas & an garnet jewellery set for her birthday. I tried really hard to tailor it to her taste. So even though practically everyone else on my list is getting a handmade present I don't feel like making her one. I told my husband he can decide what she is getting Smiley

I am fond of her but she can be a very negative person.

I was thinking of a cute teapot because she has a few of them but she''ll probably say she has no room for it. She likes gadgets and going on the computer but she doesn't play games and she likes  make-up. She recently started her first job since leaving college and has a long commute so maybe something around that? She also likes to cook.

It has gotten to the stage where  I dread handing over her gifts!
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / First time I've posted my work:Four necklaces. on: August 28, 2006 12:26:53 PM
This is the first time I have posted my work Smiley I hope you like it. The photos were taken with a scanner.

This is red jasper chips, green freshwater pearls, sterling silver with a chrysocolla pendant.

I love this one. It reminds me of a  peaty stream with coloured stones and pebbles. Botswana agate, clear agate and sterling silver. I made the clasp myself which I am very proud of Grin

Pineapple quartz  pendant with carnelian,honey jade and glass beads and amber chips.

My first attempt at wire knitting. Silver wire with red glass on memory wire.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Lenghts for children's necklaces on: December 16, 2005 09:17:12 AM
Hi everyone,

Could anyone give me guidelines for lenghts for children's necklaces. I make and sell jewellery and have been asked to adapt some of the necklaces for her children by the woman who sells my stuff in her shop. One of her little girls fell in love with a pink one I made.They are beads strung on tigertail. I don't want to make them too long  or to choke the kids! The children are 6 and 8.

I did a search but couldn't find anything,

Thanks Smiley
