I am a mother of two gorgeous girls who always provide wonderful feedback of my creations.... a partner to a very patient male. I love doing all sorts of craft work....with my main passion being Jewellery Design :D
Even though time has been stretched for this edition I was extremely lucky to be paired with June from http://www.onewhiteswan.blogspot.co.nz/ Her gorgeous pieces she sent me had my brain ticking over and over. Such colour and vibrancy, where do I start...
After much thought this is what I came up with
Was such a please to be apart of Lori's famous bead soups. Thank you June for the amazing colours. How did you know I love purple?
So to celebrate I made me a set to wear on my graduation next month.
The main pearl is from the Cook Islands where my family is from so there is a personal connection and maybe a start of new tradition
she sent me this beautiful collection of Moukaite Jasper Beads that are mined in Australia'
So I have made these ...
Necklace - Using one of the larger pieces I double sided bead stitched around securing the pendant before adding to smaller bead then did a stitch which required beading each bead on twice before hanging with the ribbon for an adjustable length.
Bracelet is a chunky style bracelet using all of Caron's beads.
With matching earrings.
Thank you Caron for the beautiful beads and Lori for organising a great event. Please follow the link below to see more. There is so much talent out there :)
What a big achievement for my Facebook page. While celebrating reaching 1700 I hit 1800. Completely by surprise so ....... I was thinking I would do a blog giveaway for this one.
