Christmas is looming

I've been giving some thought to Christmas and have made up a few items recently ie Christmas tree decorations and now a pillar candle table centre set on a glass tray, done in traditional colours of green, red and gold I have added a stretchy chacha bracelet and some tartan ribbon - the bracelet can be used as jewellery once the candle is finished with - result!

But firstly, here is yet another entry into this months challenge over at Beading Friends Forever, a beautiful Lady Luck bracelet made using wonderfully faceted crystal rondelles with AV seed beads and azure blue montees - the sparkle from this bracelet is really gorgeous, unfortunately the camera isn't really capturing it....
And here's the candle I mentioned.....all gift wrapped and ready to go..... 
I was asked to make a Spiders Web hanging decoration and here it is....I think it's kinda fun!
And finally another couple of 'Goddess' style bracelets - I really love this style and I can make them in all colours and sizes.

Christmas Star

Another little make from me this weekend - my first ever beaded Christmas Decoration!  I think I'll be making a few more of these Christmas Stars in different colours....they are so sweet and I bet they really sparkle when the tree lights hit them!  I've made this using copper wire, AB crystal bicones in bronze and light smokey faceted round crystals, gold lined seed beads and glass long bugle beads and it's about 4 inches in diameter.  This is my first entry into the 2nd part of the Beading Friends Forever October Challenge.

Hope you like this as much as I do - happy crafting x

Another Lady Luck

Another entry into the Beading Friends Forever October Challenge.....I've changed the pattern slightly by using smaller beads and less seeds, the result is the same though.  I've used 6mm AB Crystal clear round beads, a pink/lilac mix pearlised seeds and amethyst montees. 

Goddess and more!

I've been meaning to have a go at the goddess style bracelets but never got around to it - well this morning I'm on a roll - 3 created along with another 'Lady Luck' bracelet and my own design with the skulls and black bracelet.  Hope you like them - have a great weekend.
Gorgeous 'Goddess' style bracelet, this one is made using 8mm blue frosted glass beads and silver tone heavy jump rings with a silver coloured lobster claw claps.

Another entry for the Beading Friends Forever October challenge - this time using smaller AB clear round beads, lilac/pink mix pearlised seed beads and amethyst montees.

I'm really loving this style bracelet - its so effective, this time using bright pink glass beads and the heavy silver tone jump rings finished off with a fastener.

I've gone big and chunky on this Goddess bracelet & earring set.  12mm glass metallic beads with double large silver tone jump rings - its just stunning and the photo doesn't quite capture the effect.  I so luv this one - think it's my favourite so far.  Both items finished of with silver tone metal findings.

And finally (I've been busy this morning lol) I've had these silver skull beads for almost a year trying to think what to do with them and here's the result - a simple ladder stitch using 4mm ab black glass beads, 6mm opaque black glass beads and a silver tone fastener.  Really quite fun but expensive looking.
Have a fun weekend everyone - I'm back to do more 'makings' I've got an itch and it needs scratching.
