Sorry I haven't updated this for ages-well nearly 2 months, time does seems to flyby! Haven't made a great deal of jewellery lately, although I feel the urgh to buy some new beads, and I have some new ideas-so watch this space!
I have been busy making cards though. Some birthday and Christmas. If you would like to see some more keep an eye on my website as some will soon be uploaded, failing that don't hesitate to get hold of me!! Hope you enjoyed looking at these as much as I enjoyed making them.

Unfortunately no yummy pictures of Fethiye to show you, but it does give me another excuse to go off to the harbour, and grab another ice cream whilst I take some photo's-I'm sure my daughter would be very happy to hear that!!
I made a few bits and pieces this week, I am pleased with this braclet, it's the first time I have used accuflex, and I have to say it crimps wonderfully-and I love all the great colours you can get. I so enjoy finding new things in the beading world. I've also started using silver plated beads and crimp covers, and I am equally as pleased-unfortunately yet anothe thing to add to the beading lists when I go shopping!!
Here's the picture of my new bracelet-I've decided to keep this one too (however I have made another to sell!)! I used David Christian's handmade cane beads-I've fallen in love with those too!

Hopefully soon, I shall take some photo's of Fethiye, and my hubbie's shop for you to see, Fethiye is so beautiful, and the weather is apsolutely fab at the mo!
But for today, here's one necklace I am so pleased with....I think I shall name it spring lasso (name help from the Uk beaders!)
I don't normally like big jewellery for myself, but I came to the conclusion that I am a jewellery designer, and I really should make an effort to wear a bit bolder necklaces etc, so I decided to keep this one for myself. I wear it most days and have fallen in love with it. However, I felt so guilt about this I made a mini version, and bracelet to sell.
I used various Swarovski crystals, dunk beads, dyed pearls, seedies, czech beads, and some blobby lampwork beads, which I bought on a trip to Marmaris.
Well I better away now, I have just finished a brown necklace in a similar style, so I will show you soon and get some great pictures of Fethiye for you!

Sorry I never did show you the photo's of some of the beads I have been making. These aren't the first ever beads I made, but these are my attempts after a couple of weeks. And here's me!! Not a proper studio set up, but it's all in my mind to set up at the beginning of Spring, prehaps April or May. I'm going to get my Dad to make an overhead ventilation set up for me (although not asked yet!!), and we are going to move around the furniture in the computer room to accomadate my torch. My jewellery making desk is plenty big enough to be multi purpose, so it should work out great I hope!! Hope you have enjoyed seeing these pictures.
