I just bought a great book between Christmas and New Year and found the inspiration to make this bracelet - it's for me, and although not perfect, I'm really pleased with it!

The only components I haven't made are the shell and the bead caps on one of the beads.  I can't wait for the post to pick up again, I've just ordered a ton (slight exaggeration) of silver wire!

I saw a bit about micro macrame in a library book and decided to try a choker. Here's one using 1mm leather thong and using square knots.
The bead is a reworking of a failed goddess. I cleaned out the bead release and remelted the glass, putting a little simple decoration on it. Mustn't waste glass you know. The bead is secured with some other square knots and the ends sealed with PVA glue.

Don't look too closely at the second pair there's a really dodgy loop on one of them.

It's not often I'd say I was pleased someone had broken a bead, but on this occasion I had to! Just finished for the lovely Sandy - not slumped, just set as is (it was a lovely clean break!).

Some amazingly blue beads from Kay turned into a proper set (not something I do very often). I was going to add more bits, but they told me not to! I used some of my new capped headpins on the earrings, and I'm pleased with how they worked.

Also from Kay, this heart bead with feathered enamels is just delicious - and needed so little to finish it off

And then I remembered this little guy from Les - I love playing with continuous wire as a change from fabricated frames, and this was what happened

He has his more sensible side too

I'm back in love with making pins and things this year. I really should get round to listing some of them (hate that bit.....)

I got this lovely Baby Bear bead from Pam (Maple Glass Beads) in the Floral Swap - and I've made it into a fibula for my mum.  She is bear mad.....and it's her birthday (well it was last wednesday.....and I've been a bad daughter and not gone to see her yet).  She will love this to bits......and forgive me!!!!

Thank you Pam for such a lovely bead.....and thank you Helen for sending it my way.



It's the first fibula that I have made that I am happy with and is not being taken apart and going in the scrap pot Grin

Cause I think I have it...

Got rather bored making earwires and saw my thick wire sitting there looking lonely so I thought I would have a play and use some orphans in the process.
Only on silver plated but a play is a play and it was much more interesting than bend, loop, deburr.

I have finally managed to put together some bits using my own beads. Another first, sorting out flicker and uploading onto here. Not fantastic...but certainly not sweetcorn Smiley ( hope this works)

A week or so I posted a picture of a guinevere knot done in leather cord. I've added green wine bottle beads and made it up into a necklace. The freehand heart at the bottom is also wine bottle.
