More Pretties

 Sorry not been about much - still getting used to being back at work again. The earrings are Pearl and Sapphire ( both natural genuine gem stones)

 I have been practising wire wrapping cabochons - not quite there yet.  I have worn this a couple of times so it does work but I just need to perfect it before I pop one in the shop.

 I have loved making all these rosary linked necklaces and bracelets. This one has small red Jasper beads.

 This one has multi coloured Beryl slices .

 Crystals in Lemon and Greeny blue.

 A ring made with Carnelian gem stones.

A memory wire Bracelet made from the same gem stones.

 Frosted glass beads and a dyed blue pearl.

 Another memory wire bracelet, this time with Lavender faceted Amethyst and Rose quartz,

 This one Imade for myself from two styles of green crystals. I LOVE green .

 A Shell Pearl and Chrystal memory wire bracelet.

 Pearl and Ruby necklace
and finally a Pearl and Lavender Opal bracelet... so I have been doingbit and pieces. Soon be half term :)

back soon .

 I seem to have got out of the habit of blogging- it doesn't mean I am not still creating. It just means that back to school life has got a bit busy and I have had a few early nights.
Here are some of the things I have made since I last blogged.
The hoop earrings made with seed beads and tiny round blue agate beads.

 One of my very Fav stones ( and Mums Birthstone for August) peridot. There are seven tiny individually wire wrapped pear cut gem stones here with silver plated findings.

 I made this for myself - not even sure what the gem stones all are as they were part of a lucky dip scoop. The paler one is jadite.

 Another tree of life the gemstones are Rhodochrosite
 and I added a crystal heart.

 Playing with memory wire, I made Meg a bracelet from blue beads.

 This one uses Tila beads and gold seed beads.

 I wanted to learn a bit more about wire work - this is my effort at making a cage for a bead or gemstone ( two in fact)

 This brooch looks more like a dragon fly than a rose - ha ha - its all learning.

Made these last night - Shell pearls and crystals.
Some are in my Etsy shop .

Back soon.

The grass is made from Chrome Diopside chips.

 The hoop earrings have picasso glass beads in strawberry and cream colour.

Garnet pear cut wire wrapped drop earrings.

Tree of Life

 I have been playing with gem chips and wire to make these "Tree of Life" pendants. This one has already been claimed and is made from Tanzanite chips.
This one is made from Opal chips.

And this from Amethyst and chrome Diopside.

I think I prefer the ones with the bronze trees.

My first attempt at wire macrame

 I have to say that it was easier than I thought it would be -but I need to prepare LOADS more wire.

 I added the crystals to hide the join but they look quite good now.

 I will definately be doing this again.

 I also made a dangly thingy.

This one was a gift.

Back soon.
