Adding beads...

I've been experimenting a wee bit with adding extra beads to my necklaces and earrings...  what do you think?

Not sure what I think yet.... need to mull the idea over for a while!

I've also been working on some secret projects...

more on these at a later date!

A sneak peek...

Lots and lots of projects on the go at the moment... thought I would just post up a wee sneak peek of what I'm making for my niece Mathilde's birthday - a joint project with my sister who is making her a very fun nature-themed 'fuzzy felt' board - what a great idea!

Bodies and antennae next!

New prototype earrings...

Well, I've been out of commission for a while being a bit under the weather, but I'm on the mend now :).  One good thing about my crafting is that it can be done with minimal expenditure of physical energy (...not including eyesight!).  

I've been working on some earring prototypes after being given a new idea (thanks Mum!).  I found some lovely vintaj patina metal blanks and earwires on Etsy, here, and have been seeing what I can turn them into.  Here are the results so far!

I've been playing around with the idea of adding beads, as you can see with the 'Gamboge' pair.  I have some lovely findings from PatinaQueen and some fabulous beads from CaladoniaMarch  on the way - so once they arrive I will be able to try out a few more ideas.  I've been thinking about possibly adding a very few beads to my necklaces also - we'll see!
