Something new I can show you…

I have been very busy making things, most of which I can’t share here as  I don’t want to ruin any Christmas surprises. Thank you to all the lovely people who have placed orders with me, it’s been a pleasure dealing with you all. I did find a photo of a new bracelet I can share with you, it is sat in my stock box til my next sale… or until I open my online shop! It’s based on the technique I learnt from Natalia...

Flower charm bracelet

Flower charm bracelet

I started this bracelet sometime ago but felt it needed something more, something to brighten it up. I had lots of great suggestions from arty friends and in the end I decided to add the yellow beads you can see to match the yellow of the flower centres. I would have put some little crystals inside the flowers but I had already wire wrapped them onto the bracelet by then and didn’t fancy doing it all again! I will show you my new matching...
