This week I have been mostly making pendants...

Vintage Faerie Picture on 25mm Pendant
Well, I'm loving  doing the pendants.  And have spent loads of free time this week making and making!!
I've had loads of Deliveries of shiny things including the materials to make these from this great shop:  Jasmin Studio Crafts  Really good stuff and very friendly!

At the moment they are mostly Alice in Wonderland Themed and Fairies, though I've also done a few favourites!!

I've also took delivery of a mini drill - very exciting, just looking around for things to drill, so I've made some earrings!

Scrabble tile earrings- these made me laugh, it was hours after the photo was taken that I realised what these spelt!!!

Teeny Alice Earrings - 8mm diameter

Guitar Pick Earrings - I've been meaning to do for a while, and now I've got a drill you can't stop me!!

My webshop is now filling up nicely - and I had my first sale (well, two at once)  for this necklace:

Hope you've all had a good week, have a great weekend!!

Alice Necklace

So, playing with some shiny things turned into spending a lot of time (and money) on lots of shiny things!!  But I've been having fun.  Trying something new, using pictures behind glass for pendants... Here's my first attempt - Alice in Wonderland inspired. Hoping to use this method for some sci-fi themed makes.  Don't know if I would like a bead on it as well?? Comments welcomed :)
apologies for photo quality, lighting in here isn't great!!

Handmade Monday... And Shiny Things

Well, I'm feeling a lot better, but work has taken it's toll this week... Not had much time for anything.  I have resisted the urge to go on forums etc, so that I could actually get some stuff made.  I have a stall at Wales Comic Con at the beginning of June so need to get stocked up on all things shiny.

I also had an email to say I've been mentioned in another blog which is great:  

Couldn't get the light today so pics aren't ideal, but here's some of the things I've made this week :)

I'm also researching how to do some bespoke sci-fi type pieces, so watch this space

When not pop over t handmade Monday and see what everyone else has been up to?
