Now time to give away a few items and it's the perfect time to do this as it is now British Summertime. Firstly a pair of Brit Earrings, these will be perfect for the Olympics- hey if there's a band wagon to jump on I'll be there first.

Next up for grabs are these sterling silver gypsy dangles, very Sparrowsalvage, great to see her blogging again.

Lastly are these leather and regal pigeon earrings

Lastly a booby prize, I know that a lot of you, love to create your own amazing stuff, so I offer up a Bag of Crap- that will contain bits of lace,leather,beads and tings all lovingly hand retrieved from the back of my drawers and underneath the sofa.

Colour..Lots of

Woo Hoo just found the formatting button!
I'm a colour nut, love it in my jewellery, yet strangely I wear mainly sluggy browns, grey and loads of black. In Anvilartifacts blog she was talking about her love of aqua and I'm a big fan of aqua, jade, duck egg, teal colours. When I posted on her blog the security check words came up with lesbo speake, that had me chortling for 20 mins! I digress here's a great example of this colour group.
This amazing painting is by
 Karol Bąk

  and here's another with a great combo of red and yellow.

Bright enough for you, like some more.

                This photo is by Eric Lafforgue , truly beautiful and I'm totally in love with the jewellery.
                                                                                How glorious are these Kenyans, the textiles are breathtaking and look at the layers of beads, makes you feel joyful.
I've got some new pieces, but I will need to re-do my photos, due to the low light. The first one, is in blues and green, suprised you there, and features Petra's jewelidentity, bead caps and ceramic fish.
                                                                                 This next one is a choker and is done in pastel pinky,peach shades with cream and gold.
                                                                                 Next these whirligig earrings with tiny african pink glass beads and these amazing cream steampunky beads
                                                                                 Lastly a work in progress featuring Petra's Trebolite, can't spell it - flat fish ceramic pendant!
