A Little Dotty Set

Here is a little set of beads that I managed to make over at my parent's house.  As I keep saying, all my kit is packed awaiting a new home - which isn't far away now - so I am limited to torch time when I can get over to mum and dad's.  Anyway, here it is a pretty set of 5 beads they have already been made into a bracelet, details to follow pending a sunny day for photos.
I also made some 'Beau Beads' for some commissions that I picked up at a Christmas shopping evening that was held at our school.  I will try to get some shots of them before I pack the camera!!!

I can't believe this day has arrived!

This afternoon we are going to see our finished house.  We bought it a year ago from plan and now it is finished!  This is a view of the front of the house, it was taken a few weeks ago so the site is looking more finished now.

This is the view looking out from the front of the house.  We are really close to the town centre but with open fields to the front.  It will be so nice to get our boxes out of storage and for me to set up my new studio.  It will be like a pre-Christmas Christmas.  Not looking forward the actual moving but I know it is going to be fantastic.  Move date is Friday next week Yipppeeeeee!

Daisy Daisy

give me your answer do.......  Here is a picture of the daisy chains as promised.  I have got lots more in all sorts of colours.  That is what I love about making these, the colour combinations are limitless and they are such a pleasure to make

I hope the sun is shining wherever you are.  Its such a contrast to yesterday's weather here in Wiltshire.

Having a play with buttons at the moment inspired by my friend's request for some childrens jewellery for her shop .  Eggcup Clothing have opened their first shop in Devizes and it is beautiful.  I make daisy chain necklaces with matching bracelets (pics to follow at some point), which are lovely but I wanted to offer something more affordable as well so I came up with these:
They don't look much here but they are really pretty when worn.  They beauty is in the selection of buttons.  I'll be popping into the shop to see what she thinks, wish me luck!
