Getting ready for Christmas


Oh no not the C word! Sad but true; I've decided it's time to make some cheap(ish) and (very) cheerful pieces to offer for sale via janelock.etsy.com. My first effort is pictured here, more ideas to follow soon. Understated elegance for an understated price makes for the perfect gift. Yes really, trust me I'm a beader.
When something is this simple the materials have to be spot on, so I have used freshwater pearls and sterling silver. Might even wear one myself.

Designs bigger than my bank account

There is no picture to accompany this post because my next must-do project is going to set me back £25 in materials alone. Lots of strands of Czech glass fire polished beads, looped and twisted around the neck into flapper style beads, or a choker, or a single strand.... All of which is in my head, waiting for the cash flow to sort itself out. But it will be gorgeous and there will be pictures. Honest.
