Last day of July

I cannot believe it is the last day of July already...where has our summer gone....anyway apologies for not posting for a while I have been a bit under the is a selection of some of the things that I have been making lately....First up is

'Summer Sky' The colours of this remind me of dull summer mornings when the clouds are heavy and full of brooding colour, this is reflected in the labradorite, which is full of blue through to gold flashes, these cluster above a gorgeous plump and beautifully faceted Lemon Quartz...this will be available through my website from tomorrow.

'Sweetheart' Pendant is a simple sterling silver heart that hangs from a silver trace simple but soo effective.

'Lola' ~ Delicious Sea Bamboo are delicately hand wire wrapped around goldfilled hoops. Elegant and distinctive…and such a wonderful coral pink colour.

'Elina' ~ A gorgeous handmade borosilicate glass beadis topped with a cluster of beautiful gemstones including, Lemon Quartz, Apatite, Citrine, Moonstone, Amethyst and Blue Topaz....a beautiful soft green Fluorite gemstone teardrop topped with a sterling silver bead hangs beneath.

And Lastly 'Odette' ~ A hand wirewrapped teardrop holds beautiful scapolite, Iolite & Bi colour quartz gemstones all topped with coils of fine sterling silver wire...oxidised to compliment the delicious colours...this will be available on my website store shortly.
Hope you enjoy this selection...promise I won't leave it so long until the next update

Oh sore fingers!!!

The sore fingers have been a result of some intensive wire wapping this week, I have been working on some new designs, some have worked some not quite as expected, here are some of the results, first of all is 'Semeru' lovely hand woven sterling silver ellipse hoops in either shiny silver or oxidised version.
'Talicia' are beautiful hand woven earrings in a different shape this time and with the additon of gorgeous Peridot & Carnelian......I love these.
The next two pairs are just a pretty but a bit easier on the fingers to make, lovely little goldfill hearts hang from gently curving earwires, these are available in either the polished version or a random bubble version.....these are great to wear & light as a feather.........
The tutorial used in the design of the woven hoop earrings was designed by the lovely Lotta Knutar...Thanks
