busy busy busy


i have been really busy over the last couple of weeks making a mini scrapbook of my hols to spain, why does it take soooo long. anyway that done normal business will now be resumed!
i went to guildford on fri (rained all day) and visited the bead shop there, i brought some lovely flat green stones.
vicky at work has just started beading and thinks you should only buy beads one project at a time. . . . good idea in theory.
so i decided to try it and made something with the beads i had just brought.
actually it worked quite well, but it was a simple design. i decide to try some wire wrapping with some wire i had already, i really just wrapped the wire around randomly. then i joined the beads together with wire rings and crystals. i was quite pleased with the bracelet, and just had enough to make a pair of matching earrings as well.
the only problem now is that i have about 10 years of unused 'stuff' to use up.

i had another table top sale at the weekend, it went quite well, i think we had more people through the door this time.
i made some pretty button brooches, mostly using covering buttons, clover yoyo makers and flower sequins. the blue one and the browny one have fused angelina fibres on the top. i enjoyed making these and i will beexperiment with different patterns and fabrics. keep you posted. . .

  1. Just as well I am buying beads one at a time, as I haven't even started the project yet! Beautiful bracelet, I love the wrapped wire effect.
