My Holiday 2008..

Just a few photos of our week in Newquay, we had a great time, the weather was great, we picniced on the beach and went paddling!!! Just relaxed, ate some good food and drank some wine, well quite a bit of wine (thanks dad) and found a lovely little craft shop in Aberystwyth.(thanks mum)!!!

We spent a lot of time with my brother and his wife and their two dogs, Molly and Lola..they live in Aberaeron not far from newquay..




Cenarth falls, you can tell how much rain we have had over the summer by the depth of the water and all the trees washed down by the river..







The dolphins at Newquay Harbour, they are gorgeous, this is a mum with her calf, we saw them a few times over the week..










Sitting on the harbour...

My latest Makes...

Here are some of my makes for the weekend, as you can see, not much housework was done over the weekend..lol..

These are made with 3strand tigertail wire, I have used three strands of wire, four beads on each wire and then one bead on the three wires, it gives it a twisted look...




These are sets are made with 7strand tigertail wire, I have made double stranded necklaces and bracelets and used beads and crimps...

More bracelets, mobile phone charms and earrings.

Had a busy day today, I was rescued by the firebrigade from a flooded garage while at work, and came home and made these to pass the time away while it rained and rained....I am really enjoying making the mobile phone charms at the moment, a bit sparkly and quite easy to make..and I love making these bracelets ,very bling I think...

Todays Jewellery Makes...

These are my jewellery makes for today, I really enjoyed making them...I like to make things that are bright and sometimes bold.....maybe a bit different to what everyone else is making....



These are two mobile phone charms I made for my two girls, they picked their own beads.....the one on the left is for Rebecca who is nine, she has a mad sense of colour and sometimes dresses in colours that you wouldn't put together but she seems to pull it off.....the one on the right is for Bethan who is nineteen, she is more conservative with her colour choice but gorgeous none the less....
This is a handbag charm I made for a jewellery swap on the CB forum, the challenge was to use autumn colours, I think I got it right...it is made with headpins and beads attatched to a chain..

This is a beaded charm bracelet, I made this for myself, I love the colours and thought I'd spoil myself...Its is made with beads and headpins and attatched to a chain at intervals....


This is a necklace I made for my sister in laws birthday, it is a silver torque with twisted wire and beads, the large bead came from portugal...

Butterfly ATcs...

These are some atcs I made for a swap on the Busymitts forum, I made the butterflys from parchment, they are embossed, pricked and lightly coloured with pencils...I am very pleased with these, the butterflys look so delicate...


Christmas cards at last!!!

I have started my christmas cards at last, these are made using the iris folding technique, I have not done a lot of iris folding and to be honest it has never really appealed to me...so I decided to give it another bash and I am still of the same opinion....
I have also used some of the cutouts as toppers for the cards, I prefer those cards out of all of them...
