Bangles and Beads

Just a really short update. I am so please with the way these turned out.
My new style of sterling silver bangle, with a interchangeable, lampwork bead.
Love to know what you think.

Sorry about the wrinkly arm, but it is the only one I have :)
These have to go off to be Hallmarked and I hope to have them on my Etsy shop by Easter.

Happy Mothers Day

Well the weather outside, maybe cold and wet. However I hope all you mums have had a super day.
I have been busy, not just with my lampwork, but the silver work and Ceramics.
A friend wrote a lampwork tutorial, which can be found here,
She sent me a few cabochons and asked me if I would like to turn them into a piece of jewellery. I made a bracelet using her Cabochon as the toggle and a pair of earrings.

I used my own beads for this lovely bracelet. It will have to go off to be hallmarked.
I have also been making some Vessels, that can be worn as pendants or popping some perfume in them. I also thought they would make lovely memorial vessels. Here are a few that I have made and sold.

While writing this, the rain has now turned to sleet, so lets hope it is not going to snow.
I am also revisiting my roots, with ceramics. I have been making buttons and beads, these can be found on my Etsy shop.
Pop over and have a look.

Time to go and do some work. Thanks for popping by.
