More Jewelry

 This time a necklace- made from suede cord and some of my Fav beads.

 I love the colours and the fact that they look distressed- If Tim Holz made beads - theses are the sort I would expect him to make. Ha ha .

 I am not happy with the silver findings but they are all I have at the mo ( till pay day anyway !). I this copper or brass would look better.

 I made this bracelet for a friend.

Have now perfected the siledy closure thingy :)

Have a good week . Hopefully back soon.

Sorry MIA

 This time of the year is quite busy at school and I have not had a lot of time to relax ( other than fall sleep!) . This weekend ( to the detriment of the laundry) , I decided to do some beading.

 This is a "boy" double wrap, waxed cotton cord and metalic seed beaded bracelet.
It was made for a pupil who has just left- he gave me the most amzing flowers and his card made me cry.

 These smell beautiful.

 I added a metal horse button.

 This is a single wrap, leather cord bracelet . I made it for hubby for father's day

 This one was made on the loom and uses two sizes of seed beads and leather cord.

 I have called it strawberries and cream. It is finished off with a suede tie.

 This is mine :) . I adore these irregular seed beads - I had to order them from Canada and am looking for a supplier nearer to home.

 Leather cord and one of those braided "pull" closures.

 Megan saw me beading and of course she put in a request- blue and sparkly please.

Glass faceted beads on a piece of wire and white waxed cotton to finish the bracelet off.

Hopefully back soon - I NEED to show you the GORGEOUS ATC's I got a couple of weeks ago from the WOYWW ers.

A bit of Embossing

 I spent the day with the inks addict in Norfolk. We were playing with embossing powders and distress inks.

 I used the stamp that I got from the range again. Embossed in gold and coloured in with H2O's.
The postcard is used to cover a black note pad for school. I give them to pupils who are having a hard time to keep notes in.

I used the same stamps to make a tag, this time with white embossing powder- I like this  more. I used distress inks for the background

 then coloured with H2O's.

 Another tag , using the same white embossing powder .

 Using the gorgeous Chocolate baroque stamps.

 More JustRight stamps, embossed in clear powder after using a multicoloured stamp.

 Again popped onto a note book.

 Jane has lots of new Lavinia stamps and brought some with her - I couldn't resist these.
This one is just stamped over a distressed background.

Back soon x

June's Tags

 The theme for June's tags on UK Scrappers is "Flowers". I just so happen to have bought these JustRight Stamps for the Range yesterday and was eager to use them.

The flowers have been stamped , painted with H2O's and then cut out. Simple but fun.

Back soon.

Bracelets again

 The begginings of a 5 wrap bracelet for a friend.

 I have learnt a new Knot too.

I am always looking for new ways of giving gifts and this is a slightly larger bag than I normally make 4 inches wide x 3 1/3 high.It uses a whole 12 " x 12" sheet of paper  and is an SVG cut file from THIS store.

Back soon x

 Late today - I have been up but just ferrying my children about - Its gone 12 now and I have just finished my breakfast!. I am on half term so all is well. 
Right my desk- its a mess- every time I tidy up , I am inspired to do something else. I HAVE been paper crafting - all my ATC's have been sent off , I have made a couple of cards and a page, but mostly still making jewelry. I have four bracelet orders for friends and if you look to the left , you can see some gorgeous new brown cords that arrived this morning so I can get started.

 Yesterday I learnt how to make one of those "slidey" things to adjust the bracelet- I will make a couple more for stacking.

This truly gorgeous ATC arrived today from Michelle.

Sending lots of gentle hugs and get well wishes to Julia recovering from a major op today xx
If you would like to join in with this weeks hop - popover to the lovely Jan's blog as she is holding the reigns until Julia is well enough. 

Back soon
