Diamonds for Christmas

I love this new bracelet and it is realtively quick and simple to make:)

Cubes, swarovski crystals and 11/0 czech beads.

This one will be a class at mad monnies in November.

Waves Bangle

Another prototype I think...

This one is a bit small for me but it seems really interesting and I think I will make another.

Upcycle Love

Its been a while since I posted any creations, been busy and just hadn't finished anything.......

But here is one I finally finished - It is called "upcycle love" and it is a handmade image transfer applied to a reclaimed aluminium can bottom!!.

This makes the pendant very light.

My Friend Shona

:) My friend Shona blogged about the heart she made from my Puffy Heart tutorial - It looks much more beautiful in real life than in the photo - it is just so hard to photograph Swarovski special colors.  She did a wonderful job as always :) Check out her work she also does stunning wirework.

See it here :-

Oh and thank you Shona for the kind words  :)
