Stormy Sunday!

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a lovely weekend. It is a bit wet here in Surrey and I hear there is going to be a great storm tonight. I might be on my own with this but I love a good old storm but only if I am in doors wrapped up warm and can hear the rain splashing against the windows!!!! If I am out in it, that is a different matter, I hate having wet clothes and wet hair!!!Here are some more pieces that I have been creating over the last few weeks. The pictures seem a bit pale...I just received my new light tent and lights and think I am still getting the hang of it which is annoying cos I thought as soon as I used it, my piccies would come out perfect LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

As you can see, I have been busy making earrings. The first pair are made with gorgeous deep purple amethyst stones on Sterling Silver hoops.
I have loads of Sterling Silver wire so I thought I would do some hand shaping with swirls and hearts.

The pair above are made with Ruby Fuschite which has real rubies embedded in the stone!!! I love this colour combo, fab for the summer!!!

This bracelet is made using one of my favourite gemstones, Ocean Jasper. In real life it is a very dainty looking piece.

Pinch, Punch, 1st of the month!

Where did February go? I think I must have blinked and missed it!!! The weather has been lovely recently, very Spring like except last night...I thought we were in the middle of a hurricane at about 3 a.m. this morning, I could hear things being blown all over the place!!!

What have I been up to this last month? Well, my mojo has returned with a lovely tan and my head and note pad is brimming with ideas for new creations!!! I have been busy creating over the last few weeks and have finally got around to photographing some of them!!

I also went to a bead fair in Kempton Park in February and bought some Gorgeous (with a capital G!!) lampwork from a lady I hadn't heard of before, her name is Joanne Rohrer. The necklace, earrings and purple bracelet are made with her beads but I still have a couple of sets left and one has the most AMAZING aqua discs!!!!

It is Mother's Day tomorrow and I haven't made my lovely mum any jewellery as she now has so much, there isn't enough days in the year to wear it all...well, that is a slight exaggeration!!!

To all you Mummy's out there, I hope you have a lovely Mother's Day and you are spoilt rotten just as you should be!
