It's Arrived!

Well, after waiting a couple of weeks, my Polymer book by Carol Blackburn has arrived-yippee!!! I have had a quick scan and read, and I feel quite scaried about starting to make these beads!! Daft isn't it, I think, to be honest I have a fear of failure. But I must start out on this venture open minded and positive, I know I have to be patient, not rush and not expect miracles over night! Hum thats good, and now I've written it in my blog I can read it always!! My stuff also arrived from Emma Ralph. The glitters are wonderful, love those colours, and foils too, can't wait to try them, and everything was so well packed and the shipping cost was great, really really pleased, and only 8 days to Turkey amazing!! If you haven't seen Emma's web site there are some great pieces over there, she is a fab bead artist.

Thought I would show you these, I bought a Paua shell from my uncle, and used my new rotary tool to cut out the shapes I needed, I still have loads of shell left, and I love it that I can chose what shapes I want. I used Silver plated ear wires, and Swarovski Crystals to finish this piece.

Thanks to all of you who helped me sort out my blog adding problems!!
