Totally devoted to glass.

I'm calling this one Cinderella because I wasnt quite sure whether the posh crystals would go with the earthy ivory and silver glass, but I think it's worked, and just a hint of glass slippers, would you say?

Cherish Every Day and Live Life to the Full

And I know its basic.... but I have spent tonight trying to get my head around tiger tail wire, jump rings and crimps.... after watching some YouTube videos....

And this is the result!

My own beads are a bit wonky for a set, size wise, but I am pretty pleased with it, all the same.

I have never made any jewellery before.

Opinions would be most welcome! Smiley

I used that set of "Embers" beads that I posted on the Gallery last week.

Sadly I made it slightly too big for my scrawny wrists, but my daughter has her eye on it!! Grin

The lighting isn't that good either in the shed!

I was rushing about getting these ready for Halloween. I made the blue hollow necklace to wear to the Big Bead Show - something of a rush job and I think I'll remake it because I don't like how it hangs. The clasp also tends to slide round to the side. I think I'll ream it out a bit more and put it on 2mm leather instead. Or else knot some beads on the sides. (It's a perennial problem - I keep making beads on 2mm mandrels and wanting to put them on 2mm cord, and they don't fit by default. Should possibly go up a mandrel size but I really like the 2mm ones!). The swan neck clasp is currently on the other necklace as I only made one  Grin



And... PUMPKINS! I love this necklace - it's comfy and hangs well and I usually never wear orange but this cheers me up.



The pumpkins are CiM creamsicle and the big one is hollow. The small opaque lighter orange beads are pastel yellow (only got 1 rod of creamsicle), the other spacers are CiM clockwork and transparent dark grass green. I do love the CiM oranges.

There's a slight oddity at the back because I was sleepy and snipped the cord in the wrong place, so I had to add an emergency bit. Dangers of jewellery-making without much sleep! I should restring it, really, but the chances of doing that in the near future are rather low...

People keep telling me this necklace is Christmassy, so I think I'm going to declare them Christmas pumpkins and wear it then too  Grin

Well, this is their first public airing other than me wearing them for a few days as I like them so much. I've only really made earrings using headpins etc til now. Really wanted to start using silver, but wasnt sure where to start so went along to Lilian Busch, a local silver/gold/pearl contemporary jeweller whose work I really love. She gave me a swift run over the simplest of tools such as wire types/hammer/stake and the best advice which was....with wire, it's only your imagination that will set the limit...

Ordered some stuff, and came up with these with the help from my DH. The beads look the same in daylight, but one has fumed a bit more from the Triton dots which is more exagerated in the lighting in the picture. They move beautifully when you wear them! Reckon I might make a few more and eventually put on my website.

Enough blether, I could blether for Britain Grin
Hope you like.

Another of Julie HB's gorgeous cabochons. This time in a guitar pick shape pendant, with just a little touch of 18k gold to go with the amazing colours in the lampwork.

I got a couple of delicious little birdies from Sam (blackheart beads) at the GBUK AGM, and couldn't resist putting one in a cage. Sorry birdie (not sure why, but I think he's called Albert).

Glass - lampworked, blown, kilncast or fused and slumped, it's all good!

Hi Guys,

Been hard at it Mojo went awol but it seems to be back I have been lamping for 4 months now and getting better the perfectionist in me gets annoyed when the glass won't go where I want it to Smiley and the holes seem to want to be in another place other than cenre but apart from that I am getting ok I did use some Helix 2 the other night to find it turned out just one colour I wonder what I did wrong? I was expecting loads of lights.
Anyway must dash as going to teach a workshop for Christmas cards but thought I would let you see my latest work
Have a great day guys.
bye for now xxx

I know, I seem to show nothing but rings at the moment. I do love making them though Wink

Someone will know who this is for, but I'm not telling Wink

Almost impossible to capture boro loveliness in artificial light - and it's a whopper too - the finished ring is about 1" across.

I got my hands on some of Julie's fabulous discs, and have been experimenting with a different way to use them.

After a couple of not great attempts, here's one I'm happy with Smiley
