My second favourite craft is making jewellery.I have always loved jewellery,and it's great fun to make your own that way no one else will be waring the same thing.
There's a lovely little bead shop at Earlswood Lakes.
It's not far from Hockley Heath were we take Lilly to get her hair cut.So anyway,last time we were there I bought a couple of strings of Chinese Crystal lovely dark pink Rhodonite ,orange coral (sustainable harvest,I wouldn't buy it if it wasn't,)and pale pink agate.
I am having a rest from sewing this week,shoulder problems,so I have sat vey quietly at my workbench and made a couple of necklaces.
As you can see I am a very messy crafter,I try to stay tidy I really do.
This is lemon crystal ,orange coral very pale lemony agate, and large copper beads.
As you can see I love dangly earrings.
Love Rhodonite and these are a good size,I've teamed them up with a very dark red Chinese Crystal.
and of course the dangly earrings.
I like to use semi precious gems,Im not a plastic sort of girl.I don't mind glass but I prefer it to be good glass ( crystal cut)
Well that's been my day,out with my daughter tomorrow.
Lilly has her hair cut end of next week,so looks like I will be paying a visit to the bead shop.
Have a good evening.
