Summer Jewellery Preview

Well, the last few weeks has been a bit too dramatic for my own good really, with one thing or another and my new favourite word "no" has been employed quite often.  Well, there's only so much one person can do before they begin to star in their own version of a soap opera.  So anyway, while I recuperated from my recent hospital visit I've spent the odd hour or two beavering away in my attic studio.

So, you know how I love to doodle?  And I love to doodle flowers and leaves more than anything?  
So my latest batch of beads feature flowers that are based on these doodles.  I really like them and I've matched them with some gorgeous bead caps and some bronze "watermelon" beads that I've had in my stash for ages and didn't know what to do with.  However, I recently "invested" (invested sounds so much better than bought and makes things sound rather important...which of course anything beady or crafty is!!!) in some Vintaj Patinas!  I love them!  They transform everything beautifully...see how they transformed the bronze watermelon beads so that they match the pink flower beads.  Normally, I'd have used glass beads or crystals, but I didn't have anything the right shade of pink.  But now I can colour my metal beads and I think they look wonderful.  I'm really pleased with how it's turned out.

Obviously, I'm still going to use glass and crystal beads to compliment my beads.  
These ones particularly are so pretty!

So, where can you buy my new collection?  
Well, my friend, Elizabeth White is opening a new gallery on Church Street in Littleborough next week called "Fresh from the Studio" and they will be stocking my jewellery there.  
The Opening of the gallery takes place next Thursday evening on the 26th June.  
How very exciting!!!

Just to remind you that I make my beads in small batches 
so most of my jewellery is one of a kind or limited edition.
