Hello! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that the new year fills you with excitement at what possibilities the next 12 months have to offer. For me 2017 flew by far too quickly, especially from September onwards and it wasn’t all because I was having too much fun either. It was a… Continue reading New Year Resolutions?
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
A while ago the talented Cobs suggested a crafting idea that I could make with my jewellery making findings and beads and I loved it. I felt this idea was a collaboration and wanted to send her some of the finished embellishments so she could see the results for herself. In return I got the most… Continue reading Happy Mail
Hello, I’ve been missing for a while. I have missed writing on my blog this week but I really like to make sure I have enough time to sit and write something coherent rather than a load of garbled nonsense. The end of a school year is always busy but it always takes me aback… Continue reading Watercolour Flower Thank You
Happy Thursday!

I’m not one to say no to a good idea so out came my beads and head… Continue reading Handmade Embellishments
I’ve realised this week that I should start taking photos of my makings as I go along rather than waiting till I have finished. Common sense, I know, but I get so absorbed in what I am doing that logic escapes me. Anyway, here are the recent pieces of jewellery made with some of the… Continue reading Fimo Jewellery
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
When I get my Fimo out its a bit of an event! My craft table has to be totally clear, I have to extend my table so I can secure my pasta machine on, I need to be organised (it’s too easy to transfer colours from messy hands when rushing and, whilst I trust my kids not… Continue reading Pretty Pendants – Fimo Jewellery Part 1
