Cocktail BLING!

A little beady project following the tutorial on this months crafty challenge over at Beading Friends Forever....this one is using green crystal bi-cones and metallic seed beads - very Christmassy I think!  Hope you like this effort.

Septembers Birthstone

I almost forgot this little number, created with genuine Red Carnelian which I'm told is Septembers birthstone, so very apt for this months Beading Friends Forever challenge.
Happy Sunday everyone xx

A chip off the old block!

Good morning everyone, hope you are enjoying your weekend as much as I am.

This morning I woke up with Mark Smiths DVD 'Chips & Nuggets'  playing in my head and just had to try my first chip multi-strand necklace.  Thanks Mark for your wonderful inspiration I hope I've done you proud.  You can check out Marks wonderful work here - Orbital Designs  So here it is, my genuine gemstone blue sodalite multistrand necklace incorporating Silver metal spacedust beads and finished with silver coloured metal t-bar fastener & cone ends.  Hope you like it. 

I am entering this into Beading Friends Forever September Challenge 'Anything goes'.

 Above you can see how this will sit on the d├ęcolletage area beautifully and
below is a view of the simple but stunning finishing.
Thanks for dropping by and call again soon.

Septembers Birthstone

Hello blog land, it's been awhile, I've had a busy few months with family and holidays etc etc oh my crazy life!  And now the weather has turned and it's back to cosy nights and weekends in with my beady stash!  So, I was asked if I had any Red Carnelian and could I come up with a birthday gift using it, as it's the birthstone of September - I hadn't realised this!  Here is what I created using Red Carnelian, gold stardust spacer beads and gold finished chain and findings, pictured below is a jewellery set including necklace with extender chain, bracelet & earrings.   I'm also entering this into Beading Friends Forever monthly challenge 'Anything goes'.
