Welcome to my cosy corner! In this blog I would like to be able to share ideas, and also ask you to share ideas on any craft which is of interest. Please let me know you've dropped by - just leave me a comment and i will get back to you when I can!
From time to time, I head back to this blog to share creations with the reader... and so I have started to work with jewellery - only a week ago! I think I have the knack for it, having always observed carefully every piece of jewellery I buy.
My gran taught me to string beads as a young child - mostly seed and bugle beads, but I never knew quite how to get them to hang around my neck unless the thing was large enough to go through my head. And I have always wanted to make earrings but never knew quite how.
This last weekend, I took the plunge and joined a friend of mine. I put together some tools that I had, together with some supplies from when I last attempted to start again. But this time it went well - I have a couple of items listed on Etsy - Gerimaus's shop!
I travelled to Malaysia earlier this year (actually late last year) and took some photographs that I am really proud of. We trekked along in the jungle, visited beaches and caves.... well writing a whole journal of my travels would bore everyone to death! So I thought I would share some pictures here with those who follow my occasional posts.... here you go!
Well here I'm at it again! I bought some lovely bead collections from Sabrika's in various ethnical colours - Oriental Promise, Pink Garden, Forest Green, Seascape Tones and Tropical Sea - and got into this 'making' frenzy. So I decided to post some of them here.
This first one is my Oriental Dream Necklace, on sale on Etsy. I made it while unable to sleep, at two o'clock in the morning. I was thinking of re-visiting the Far East, in particular India or Thailand. I am quite pleased with the outcome, needless to say. Find it on etsy, or else contact me through the comments below if you want something custom-made for yourself.
