I'm burning the midnight oil at the moment desperately trying to keep up with blogging, promoting, making new stuff and my daughter's wedding. It may not be until next year but I'm making all the bouquets with fabric flowers, buttons and brooches. Plus the bridemaids's jewellery and all manner of favour treats and boxes and THE CAKE!!!!!
Shelley says I'm turning into Martha Stewart...which I'd love, being paid lots of money for crafting, just could do without the criminal record.
My daughter has now started a blog plotting our progress and also providing lots of ideas for the bride who wants to be a bit different and also tutorials.
Want to know how to make these cuties
We'd be thrilled if you would join us and follow our progress.
Also I've added an Alternative Bride section in my shop
It features these new goodies
And my very first Tiara
I've also got a last chance sale section with big reductions, an opportunity to grab a bargain before it disappears into the recycle box...Every little helps!
I've been having a go at a variation on the bangle stacks using big holed beads, 16 gauge copper and a integral clasp. Here's what I came up with
Love how the joy bead and Petra's dangle look together.
Guilder's paste has been applied to this one.
I will make more of these and I may well experiment with chokers too.
These little cuties will be up soon as well as these pod earrings
So it's back to the graft for me and look out for a the Bead Hoarder's blog on the 20th July!
