I can accross this fantastic bracelet tutorial from The Gossiping Goddess and thought I might be able to make it using my spacer beads and a lampwork button for the toggle.
I visited a Purple Moon bead shop in Ventnor and bought some coloured jump rings, I haven't made the bracelet yet, more beads needed but I did make this cute Chainmaille bracelet using a kit they sell. This one is called Lavender Flip Flop Bracelet. I guess it took me about an hour to make. It didn't come with the magnetic catch, I added it so that the bracelet is easier to put on.
I've been attending 1to1 jewellery classes and it's nice to be able to know I am on my way to be able to make jewellery properly. So following my last class I made this necklace
I came accross these fantastic earrings by Donna Millard and I had never thought of using disc beads in this way. The last two bead making sessions I had I made a couple of disc beads using Reichenbach Dark Multi. I'm not sure I got the best out of the glass but they were a lovely midnight blue colour.
Back of the Flame Off, wow, back in April so a while ago, I bought some bead caps and have never used them. Well now I had my chance, I am really chuffed with these earrings, totally inspired by Donna. I just wish I could wear them but my ears just start itching after a while, even with sterling silver.
So as you can see I haven't been slacking really.
