Lovely day for a bike ride!!!

What a nice day it was today! I decided to get on my bike (which is very unusual for me!!) and cycled in to town. Thing was, I forgot that I had my bike and bought quite a lot of stuff that was heavy!! Luckily (or not for my purse!!!) there is a great bike shop in my town and so I bought and had fitted a basket! When I rang my hubby and told him he nearly wet himself with laughter and called me a granny!!! It is not a wicker basket but a rather stylish black wire affair (it should be made of gold for what it cost!!!!). I have never had a basket on any bike I have owned and it is really weird riding with it cos it makes the bike REALLY heavy and I was wobbling all over the place!!!! I think now I have got the basket, I will get out on my bike more! Lets see how long that idea lasts for!!!!

Mojo is still sunning it somewhere but I did manage to make a new bracelet. It is amazonite, rock crystal and sterling silver. It is actually a bracelet that I took apart and made in to something different. The original design had Blue Chalcedony in it however it went discoloured and a yellowish colour which looked awful :o(

I did a children's jewellery making party last Sunday and some of the children thought it would be helpful to put all the beads together (bless!!) so I have approx 50,000 small beads to sort through before the next party in less than 4 weeks time...ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend :o)

Mojo's gone on holiday!!

Hmmm, not sure what is wrong with me... I had nothing planned this weekend so thought I would sit at the old jewellery table and actually made a couple of pieces however I seem to have lost my mojo!! Instead, I managed to create a new banner (hope you like it...see top of the page) and have designed and ordered my new business cards.

I wanted something very simple and clean and hope I have achieved this...can't wait to see how they look in real like!

Even though my mojo is sunning it on a beach somewhere, I did manage to make a necklace and some earrings for a commission order. I seem to be having some problems photographing my jewellery at the moment so can't post a piccie.

In my last post, I forgot to say a big thank you to Becky Fairclough. When I was having my new logo designed, she came up with the idea to have the word 'jewellery' in a more swirly text and as soon as I saw it like that, I knew that was how I wanted my logo!! So Becky, THANK YOU!!!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend :o)

New Year, New Logo!!

Hey everyone...HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Back in October I had a new logo designed and I have finally got around to using it and I am loving it!!!! The style and colour is perfect, just what I wanted!!! Because the colour scheme is different to my original one, I also had to change my website colours which I am also loving!!!

So, no new jewellery to show today, just a new logo and updated website!!!

I would love to hear your comments.
