Hello! I’ve continued (mostly) with beading weaving over the last week or so. As mentioned in my previous post I have made my snowflake necklace in 2 other colours. I made these a little simpler with only 3 rosettes to each necklace. I also started a really basic necklace that just grew as I went along.… Continue reading Bead Weaving Jewellery
I have had a little time to play with my new beads. I have to say that I am totally in love with the superduo two hole beads I bought, so much so that I keep finding myself drooling over all the pretty colours on line and trying to find new ways to use them.… Continue reading Superduo Snowflakes
I’m back from my holiday in the lovely Cornwall and I’ve missed my blog as much as I miss my own bed and my craft desk. I took my watercolour paints with me but I didn’t really get a chance to play so I have nothing to show at the minute but I did visit one… Continue reading Beads, Beads and More Beads
Happy Thursday! A little while ago my lovely blog friend Cobs from The Cobweb Emporium (check out her blog to see her gorgeous makes) suggested that I could make my own card/scrapbooking embellishments with jewellery making findings and beads. I’m not one to say no to a good idea so out came my beads and head… Continue reading Handmade Embellishments

My kids went for a sleepover at my Mum’s house this weekend so I took the opportunity to have a day at my craft desk making some Fimo beads. I used a variety of techniques from cane work to shaping by hand. I’m pretty chuffed with the results and I’m looking forward to making them into… Continue reading Fimo Beads
Here are some of my recent jewellery makes. Sorry the photos are not the best!
Here are the last of my most recent Fimo makes. They were all hand made by rolling and shaping polymer clay (in this case Fimo). I used a cocktail stick for adding detail. Happy crafting. Hannah
I finally got round to decorating the watch face I bought weeks ago with my sister. It’s a Beadalon watch face with Czech glass Matubo seed beads and silver spacer beads threaded on beading elastic. The Matubo seed beads are new to me and are absolutely gorgeous. This watch is definitely for me to keep as I… Continue reading Beaded Watch
